    To anyone visiting here, I got a lot of feedback for new tools (which I haven't tried yet), both on Youtube and here, so I compiled it into a list: A comment on Lens: Initially I wanted to include Lens in the video but decided it's a bit different in that it's not a CLI / TUI. Many users shared bad experience with Lens, mainly around performance and a large amount of requests it shoots at the cluster API to a point where some companies banned it. These are the tools (I may add a video review on if anyone thinks it's worth it): * https://github.com/kubermatic/fubectl - for an improved kubectl experience * https://github.com/particledecay/kconf - for those with complex kubeconfig changes requirements * https://github.com/MuhammedKalkan/OpenLens - an open version of Lens (note the above before using) * https://github.com/hidetatz/kubecolor - colored kubectl output :) * https://github.com/astefanutti/kubebox - the K9s little brother? * https://github.com/bergerx/kubectl-status - human friendly resource status output

  • kubectl-status

    A kubectl plugin to print a human-friendly output that focuses on the status fields of the resources in kubernetes.

  • dotfiles

    My dotfiles synced form localhost and remote machines (by omerxx)

    My dotfiles are at - https://github.com/omerxx/dotfiles Specifically the terminal I'm currently using is Alacritty, but for the video I used iTerm (looks cleaner with transparency for the video). Regardless of terminal I always attach myself my Tmux session (also in the dotfiles). You're probably also wondering about the command line which is set with ohmyzssh + powerlevel (https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k)
