  • helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

    It will ask which cluster you want to deploy Loft in, assuming you have multiple clusters configured in your kube-config file. Then, it will request your email address and deploy Loft into your cluster via Helm.

  • JetBrains

    Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022. Take part in the Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022 by JetBrains and get a chance to win a Macbook, a Nvidia graphics card, or other prizes. We’ll create an infographic full of stats, and you’ll get personalized results so you can compare yourself with other developers.

  • git

    A fork of Git containing Windows-specific patches. (by git-for-windows)

    Developers use a variety of online tools to create and test applications and collaborate with teammates, such as Git repositories, project management boards, and communication channels. If they need a separate set of credentials for their Kubernetes clusters, they must take extra steps to ensure their data is safe, which raises the possibility of errors. By using SSO, developers can authenticate into their cluster with the same credentials they use for other tools.

  • Puts Debuggerer

    Ruby library for improved puts debugging, automatically displaying bonus useful information such as source line number and source code.

    # Windows PowerShell md -Force "$Env:APPDATA\loft"; [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [System.Net.SecurityProtocolType]'Tls,Tls11,Tls12'; Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing ((Invoke-WebRequest -URI "" -UseBasicParsing).Content -replace "(?ms).*`"([^`"]*loft-windows-amd64.exe)`".*","`$1") -o $Env:APPDATA\loft\loft.exe; $env:Path += ";" + $Env:APPDATA + "\loft"; [Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable("Path", $env:Path, [System.EnvironmentVariableTarget]::User); # Ensure you add the folder %APPDATA%\loft to the PATH environment variable after installation, then reboot your computer afterward.
