    One apparent limitation of the CDK is that, at least for the nonce, it can only be used with AWS (there are two notable projects in the work right now that will greatly expand CDK's reach: cdk8s and cdktf). With Terraform you can use choose from a plethora of providers. Hell, I was able to set up my home network running on Unifi Dream Machine using Terraform. How cool is that?!

    I would be remiss to not point out that both the Kubernetes CDK, awslabs/cdk8s, and Terraform CDK, hashicorp/terraform-cdk both already use projen.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing charts and cdk8s you can also consider the following projects:

kubernetes-mixin - A set of Grafana dashboards and Prometheus alerts for Kubernetes.

external-dns - Configure external DNS servers (AWS Route53, Google CloudDNS and others) for Kubernetes Ingresses and Services

terraform-cdk - Define infrastructure resources using programming constructs and provision them using HashiCorp Terraform

keda - KEDA is a Kubernetes-based Event Driven Autoscaling component. It provides event driven scale for any container running in Kubernetes

volcano - A Cloud Native Batch System (Project under CNCF)

kube-state-metrics - Add-on agent to generate and expose cluster-level metrics.

spark-on-k8s-operator - Kubernetes operator for managing the lifecycle of Apache Spark applications on Kubernetes.

prometheus-operator - Prometheus Operator creates/configures/manages Prometheus clusters atop Kubernetes

helm-charts - Jenkins community Helm charts

metrics-server - Scalable and efficient source of container resource metrics for Kubernetes built-in autoscaling pipelines.

helm-diff - A helm plugin that shows a diff explaining what a helm upgrade would change

opta - The next generation of Infrastructure-as-Code. Work with high-level constructs instead of getting lost in low-level cloud configuration.
