Why Kubernetes Is So Complex

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • MailHog

    Web and API based SMTP testing

    For development, we have deployed a instance of MailHog to our cluster, a simple mail server that catches all mails without forwarding them. It allows any user/password combination. Here is what our mailhog controller looks like:

  • sidekiq

    Sidekiq worker on Render (by render-examples)

    The good news is that there are many efforts to make Kubernetes easier to use. Acorn aims to simplify application packaging and deployment. And services like Render and our very own Cloudplane use Kubernetes under the hood to deliver a user-friendly solution that requires zero Kubernetes knowledge.

  • 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.

  • lens

    Lens - The way the world runs Kubernetes

    With some experience and a user interface like Lens, debugging becomes easier. And there are great monitoring solutions for production use. But this is still a big hurdle for beginners taking their first steps with Kubernetes.

  • flux2

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

    Flux lets us use a git repository as the single source of truth for our cluster, but for dynamic resources we will want to use the API server instead. We use both of these approaches; Flux sets up our cluster, and applications are created using our own Application resource.
