Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

  • Top 5 DevOps Best Practices You Should Use
    4 projects | | 27 Jun 2022
    Containers are the packaging for the application’s operating system if CI/CD is used to automate the delivery of applications. Developers can specify the operating system, application requirements and configuration requirements to create a container that runs the applications on an isolated layer. It shares the operating system with its host. Kubernetes and Docker are container technologies that allow developers to define consistent application environments.

    um, they aren't missing anything (but see below). they are k8s.

    so if you want to get the genuine original mainline experience you go to the project's github repo, they have releases, and mention that the detailed changelog has links to the binaries. yeey. ( .. the client is the kubectl binary, the server has the control plane components the node binaries have the worker node stuff), you then have the option to set those up according to the documentation (generate TLS certs, specify the IP address range for pods (containers), install dependencies like etcd, and a CNI compatible container network layer provider -- if you have setup overlay networking eg. VXLAN or geneve or something fancy with openvswitch's OVN -- then the reference CNI plugin is probably sufficient)

    at the end of this process you'll have the REST API (kube-apiserver) up and running and you can start submitting jobs (that will be persisted into etcd, eventually picked up by the scheduler control loop that calculates what should run where and persists it back to etcd, then a control loop on a particular worker will notice that something new is assigned to it, and it'll do the thing, allocate a pod, call CNI to allocate IP, etc.)

    of course if you don't want to do all this by hand you can use a distribution that helps you with setup.

    microk8s is a low-memory low-IO k8s distro by Canonical (Ubuntu folks) and they run dqlite (distributed sqlite) instead of etcd (to lower I/O and memory requirements), many people don't like it because it uses snaps

    k3s is started by Rancher folks (and mostly still developed by them?),

    there's k0s (for bare metal ... I have no idea what that means though), kind (kubernetes in docker), there's also k3d (k3s in docker)

    these distributions work by consuming/wrapping the k8s components as go libraries -


    then there's the whole zoo of various k8s plugins/addons/tools for networking (CNI -, storage (CSI -, helm for package management, a ton of security-related things that try to spot errors in all this circus ... and so on.

  • How to Develop and Test an Automated CI/CD Workflow with Cassandra
    3 projects | | 21 Jun 2022
    If you have projects that depend on Apache Cassandra™ and you want to develop an automated continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) flow, you’re going to need to create Cassandra clusters dynamically for your tests to make sure that your app works after each code change. DataStax does this every day — we run Cassandra in Kubernetes to power Astra DB. And, we use continuous testing of our Cassandra deployments to make sure Astra DB works reliably.
  • Checklist for Platform Engineers
    6 projects | | 16 Jun 2022
    Suppose your platform team is working on an internal Kubernetes platform. You will want to automate their most common tasks to speed up delivery. This self-service model considerably reduces the time developers spend performing the same tasks in multiple environments when they could be developing another feature.
  • Docker Compose to Kubernetes: Step-by-Step Migration

    This problem of managing multiple containers is what prompted container orchestration tools like Docker Compose and Kubernetes.
  • Five Dex Alternatives for Kubernetes Authentication
    6 projects | | 16 Jun 2022
    Authentication helps control access to cluster resources by first verifying a user’s identity. In Kubernetes, the API server needs to verify the identity of every request it receives. Such requests may come from a program like a pod or from a human user. Since Kubernetes lacks a built-in feature for authenticating users, you’ll need to rely on auth providers for this service. Fortunately, the container orchestration platform accommodates a variety of authentication providers.
  • Harbor + Kubernetes = Self-Hosted Container Registry
    5 projects | | 16 Jun 2022
    Harbor is the solution if you want to self-host a container registry for Docker images. It was developed initially inside of VMware but has since been adopted by CNCF. Today, it lives as an open-source tool, aiming to give users as many features as possible while still being free. In this tutorial, you’ll be shown how to get it up and running inside of Kubernetes.
  • 10 Essentials for Kubernetes Access Control
    5 projects | | 16 Jun 2022
    Kubernetes, an automated system for managing containerized applications, offers multiple benefits to developers. It eliminates application downtime by creating a new pod automatically when an existing pod crashes, and it allows teams to easily scale applications for traffic increases or decreases. Many organizations are moving their existing applications to Kubernetes due to these and other features.
