  • kubectx

    Faster way to switch between clusters and namespaces in kubectl

    Then switch Kubernetes context e.g. using kubectx

  • pluto

    A cli tool to help discover deprecated apiVersions in Kubernetes

    In large clusters with dozens of resource types and versions, this can become tedious and error-prone. Luckily, there are tools like pluto by FairwindOps which assist us in spotting deprecated and soon-to-be-removed resource API versions.

  • k3d

    Little helper to run CNCF's k3s in Docker

    To get a clearer picture, let's have a look at the second problem and see how Kubernetes responds if we try to deploy a resource using a removed API version. To do this, we spin up a local Kubernetes cluster with k3d

  • binenv

    One binary to rule them all. Manage all those pesky binaries (kubectl, helm, terraform, ...) easily.

    Pluto is available on multiple platforms and via a variety of package managers. We'll use binenv here.

  • helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

    If we deploy our resources with Helm, Pluto also provides a detect-helm subcommand that checks our releases for deprecated API versions.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
