Top 12 Go k3 Projects

  • colima

    Container runtimes on macOS (and Linux) with minimal setup

  • Project mention: Linux virtual machines, with a focus on running containers | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-27

    I'm surprised this says "with focus on running containers", I thought that would be colima, which uses Lima but is a separate project. https://github.com/abiosoft/colima

    Lima is more of a nice way to run a Linux VM on Mac in a way that integrates the guest and the host systems to a good degree by default. It wraps either QEMU or Apple's VZ framework.

    For a more traditional VM GUI, there's https://mac.getutm.app/ which is a completely separate project that also wraps QEMU or VZ.

  • k3sup

    bootstrap K3s over SSH in < 60s 🚀

  • Project mention: K3s – Lightweight Kubernetes | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-11
  • vcluster

    vCluster - Create fully functional virtual Kubernetes clusters - Each vcluster runs inside a namespace of the underlying k8s cluster. It's cheaper than creating separate full-blown clusters and it offers better multi-tenancy and isolation than regular namespaces.

  • Project mention: Clusters Are Cattle Until You Deploy Ingress | dev.to | 2024-05-30

    Tools like Crossplane, vCluster (for managing multiple clusters), or Cluster API (for provisioning additional clusters) can extend this approach to handle various infrastructure resources beyond Kubernetes. Essentially, Git serves as the single source of truth for your entire infrastructure, with Argo CD functioning as the engine to enforce that truth.

  • k3d

    Little helper to run CNCF's k3s in Docker

  • Project mention: 15 Options To Build A Kubernetes Playground (with Pros and Cons) | dev.to | 2024-01-25

    K3D: is a lightweight distribution of Kubernetes designed for resource-constrained environments. It is an excellent option for running Kubernetes on virtual machines or cloud servers.

    I've been eyeing Kairos [1] which is an OS lifecycle management system for k3s which looks like a nice way to deploy k3s.
