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.

The CI/CD has a service account with permissions to all envs, and during deployment it renders the config files and inserts the "real" values by pulling it from Vault/KMS. Something very simple is Spruce, which is actually a powerful general templating tool but I've seen it only used for vault secrets so far.

I use spruce for many thing but it's ability to merge y'all files smartly is very useful. Think global yaml merged with one of [prod, staging, dev].yaml, merged with override.yaml creating a deployment yaml. https://github.com/geofffranks/spruce

I would look at Nomad. It's container / task orchestrator but its much simpler than Kubernetes. Also you don't have to run docker containers, it can run executables directly: https://www.nomadproject.io/docs/drivers/exec

You are also asking on a Kubernetes subredit most people here probably think nothing of the complexity of Kubernetes but there other ways of running docker, which are potentially a better fit if you dont "need all the batteries" that kubernetes offers. Have a look at nomad from Hashicorp I have been told it is a lot easier to use.

7 Open Source Cloud Native Tools That Aren’t Kubernetes

Did you know there are container orchestrators besides Kubernetes? One of them is Nomad, made by the folks at HashiCorp.

To avoid such a mess, as engineering teams grow in size, it's necessary to standardize development and operations. One area of focus at Lob has to do with container orchestration and standardizing how we run services at Lob by migrating from Convox, Heroku, and on-off Infrastructure to Nomad. By prioritizing some technology over others we are able to improve the developer experience and avoid stretching ourselves—and those we support—too thin. Basically, Nomad will help us avoid reinventing the wheel with every new app at Lob.

How much time are you willing to read and learn? These are not things you'll be able to pick up overnight. You might also consider Nomad over Kubernetes. Portainer also has a distributed model (and can use Nomad/k8s I believe).

Hack to the Future: A Recap

In a previous hackathon, data analyst Chris Migirdic built an IDE where you present your own time series data/problem, and a layer could be provided over it to make time-series predictions. This iteration was quickly dubbed “BYOSQL,” or Bring Your Own SQL, by participants as he explained one could write any SQL query against Lob’s data warehouse, and you'd be able to fit a time series model over that. The most obvious application for Lob is evaluating mailpiece data. Another improvement over the previous version was performance; much of this was attributed to a shift to deployment in Nomad. Finally, another benefit of the program is to pick up what kinds of queries people are running and get an idea of what prediction problems our developers are trying to solve.
What (if anything) will replace Kubernetes?

That being said, it hasn't kept similar offerings from continuing to pop up as a "less complex" solution. Take Nomad for instance.

HashiCorp Nomad | Full time | Remote
Want to work on an alternative to Kubernetes made by the creators of Terraform, Consul, Vagrant, and Vault? Come work on Nomad at HashiCorp! Our team builds and maintains a highly-scalable, flexible distributed cluster orchestrator. Nomad helps teams run varied workloads including containers, VMs, and raw binaries. Cloudflare, PagerDuty, Roblox, Pandora, and many other large organizations run Nomad in production today.
We are currently looking for both backend and frontend engineers interested in solving hard problems in the DevOps space, tackling interesting distributed systems challenges, and/or working on open source software.
Our stack: Golang & Ember (experience in either is nice to have, but not a hard requirement)
