  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Jenkins

    Jenkins automation server

    Jenkins is an open source tool for automating tasks that aids continuous integration and delivery by automating the elements of software development related to building, testing, and deploying. It’s one of the most popular choices when dealing with CD pipelines.

  • prometheus

    The Prometheus monitoring system and time series database.

    You can use it to deploy an application, but that’s an approach not used by many as it doesn’t have the advanced features available in some of the previous methods. The monitoring part of the dashboard doesn’t provide granular control, and open source tools, like Prometheus with Grafana, are widely used instead because they have been built explicitly for visualization and monitoring.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • kubernetes

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    Kubernetes stands out as one of the most popular container orchestration tools currently available, with 5.6 million developers using the orchestrator by the end of 2021, a 67% increase from the previous year.

  • hub-feedback

    Feedback and bug reports for the Docker Hub

    If you have an application running on a Kubernetes cluster and need it to update as soon as your new changes are pushed on your code, you need a CI/CD pipeline. CI stands for continuous integration and focuses on integrating your latest commits to a repository, like Docker Hub, after tests and checks. CD stands for continuous delivery/deployment, where you automatically update your application on Kubernetes after it’s integrated with the previous stage.

  • helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

    Helm is another popular client-side tool that helps you easily create and deploy complex Kubernetes applications. It provides reproducibility of deployment with the help of charts that describe the resources your Kubernetes API should deploy.

  • flux2

    Open and extensible continuous delivery solution for Kubernetes. Powered by GitOps Toolkit.

    A good alternative would be to use GitOps tools, like Argo CD and Flux, to deploy your application after building and testing the application locally via DevSpace and pushing the changes to your remote repository.

  • devspace

    DevSpace - The Fastest Developer Tool for Kubernetes ⚡ Automate your deployment workflow with DevSpace and develop software directly inside Kubernetes.

    Developer tools, like DevSpace, are designed to help develop your software faster and without the complexity of other access methods. These tools make adoption rapid with a lot of features. In short, it makes a developer’s life simple without much bother regarding infrastructure.

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.
