Problem right now is the complexity is transferred onto guys configuring the platform..... I want to see more "out of the box" implementations.

    Convert Compose to Kubernetes

    I frequently recommend Kompose as a k8s beginners tool, but as you've mentioned elsewhere it doesn't work for all scenarios and therefore becomes limiting.... What I do is transition devs to helm as quick as I can. One approach is adopting Devspace (Other similar tools I evaluated were Skaffold + Tilt). This provides developers with the k8s native workflows they need to build, deploy and debug their code against a k8s cluster. I consider the "devspace.yaml" to be a superior alternative to "docker-compose.yaml", yet it requires devs to accept....
