Top 23 Kubernete Open-Source Projects

  • GitHub repo kubernetes

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    Project mention: Ask HN: Use VMs to host Containers? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-19
  • GitHub repo netdata

    Real-time performance monitoring, done right! https://www.netdata.cloud

    Project mention: Netdata: Open-source real-time monitoring platform | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-21
  • GitHub repo etcd

    Distributed reliable key-value store for the most critical data of a distributed system

    Project mention: Scaling Kubernetes with Assurance at Pinterest | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-04-08

    The kube-apiserver started to first experience latency spikes and increased error rate, and then get Out of Memory (OOM) killed due to resource limit. The unbound retry from Kubelets resulted in a 7x jump on kube-apiserver load. The burst of writes caused etcd to reach its total data size limit and start rejecting all write requests, and the platform lost availability in terms of workload management.

  • GitHub repo traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

    Project mention: EKS: 10 tips to reduce the bill up to 90% on AWS managed Kubernetes clusters | dev.to | 2021-04-20

    To avoid this expensive (and luxurious) operation, it is better to define the services in ClusterIP, and to define ingress, managed by an ingress controller like Traefik, created by a former Zenika employee, or the one based on NGINX. It will provision a single load balancer for all ingresses, and therefore all kubernetes services.

  • GitHub repo Kong

    🦍 The Cloud-Native API Gateway

    Project mention: Making API keys | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-04-14
  • GitHub repo istio

    Project mention: Awesome Kubernetes Resources | dev.to | 2021-03-15


  • GitHub repo Dokku

    Project mention: Good resources on self hosting (VPS)? | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-04-13
  • GitHub repo minikube

    Run Kubernetes locally

    Project mention: Box CLI Maker module is being used in Kubernetes's MiniKube Project! | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-04-13

    PR in which this was implemented: https://github.com/kubernetes/minikube/pull/10818

  • GitHub repo OpenFaaS

    OpenFaaS - Serverless Functions Made Simple

    Project mention: Why we moved from Lambda to ECS | reddit.com/r/devops | 2021-04-20

    OpenFaaS isn't something I was previous familiar with. Thanks for linking it! In your experience, does it come with much management overhead? Part of what makes Lambda/ECS so appealing is that you can throw a definition (code .zip file or container image) at AWS, and it just runs. With OpenFaaS, it looks like you need to maintain some additional infrastructure (a Kubernetes cluster) to get it working, and that'd give you one more thing to worry about.

  • GitHub repo helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

    Project mention: AzureFunBytes Reminder - Demystifying @HelmPack with @DonovanBrown - 4/22/2021 | dev.to | 2021-04-21

    What is Helm? Helm is an open-source packaging tool that helps you install and manage the lifecycle of Kubernetes applications. Similar to Linux package managers like APT and Yum, Helm manages Kubernetes charts, which are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources.

  • GitHub repo JHipster

    JHipster is a development platform to quickly generate, develop, & deploy modern web applications & microservice architectures.

    Project mention: The Modern Java Platform | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-16

    Check out https://www.jhipster.tech

    It uses Spring Boot, but comes with a lot of sane defaults.

  • GitHub repo awesome-cheatsheets

    👩‍💻👨‍💻 Awesome cheatsheets for popular programming languages, frameworks and development tools. They include everything you should know in one single file.

    Project mention: Github repositories for Web Development via twitter Pratham. | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-03-15

    Awesome cheat-sheets for popular programming languages, frameworks and development tools

  • GitHub repo Nacos

    an easy-to-use dynamic service discovery, configuration and service management platform for building cloud native applications.

  • GitHub repo rancher

    Complete container management platform

    Project mention: Rancher's new HCI project, a future disruption in the Virtualization space | reddit.com/r/rancher | 2021-04-05

    I'm curious what your use-case is ... there are github issues open (like this one) around ipv6 support. Rancher follows upstream K8s development so dual-stack is likely coming around K8s 1.22 timeframe. What's your use-case for v6-only?

  • GitHub repo k3s

    Lightweight Kubernetes

    Project mention: PIs for my Aunts birthday! She wants to make a Kubernetes cluster! Thought you guys might enjoy the packaging | reddit.com/r/RASPBERRY_PI_PROJECTS | 2021-04-19

    This article seems to say k3s (the small Kubernetes from Rancher I mentioned elsewhere under this post) doesn't support the first Pi or the Pi Zero. But you could use one or several 2B/3B/3B/4+.

  • GitHub repo charts

    ⚠️(OBSOLETE) Curated applications for Kubernetes (by helm)

    Project mention: My Journey With Spark On Kubernetes... In Python (1/3) | dev.to | 2021-04-12

    In this section, you use Helm to deploy the Kubernetes Operator for Apache Spark from the incubator Chart repository. Helm is a package manager you can use to configure and deploy Kubernetes apps.

  • GitHub repo lens

    Lens - The Kubernetes IDE

    Project mention: Ask HN: What's your absolute favorite tech stack, after having tried others? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-10

    - Lens (a Kubernetes IDE, https://k8slens.dev/ )

  • GitHub repo kops

    Kubernetes Operations (kops) - Production Grade K8s Installation, Upgrades, and Management

    Project mention: Blazing fast Kubernetes scaling with ASG warm pools | dev.to | 2021-04-19

    Over the last year or so I have regularly contributed to kOps, which is my preferred way of deploying and maintaining production-ready clusters on AWS. I know well how it boots a plain Ubuntu instance and configures it to become a Kubernetes node, and I could not imagine implementing warm pool support would be any challenge. And turns out it was not either.

  • GitHub repo dapr

    Dapr is a portable, event-driven, runtime for building distributed applications across cloud and edge.

    Project mention: Show HN: Encore – Go framework for distributed systems | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-14

    Is this something like https://dapr.io/?

  • GitHub repo Seaweed File System

    SeaweedFS is a distributed storage system for blobs, objects, files, and data warehouse, to store and serve billions of files fast! Blob store has O(1) disk seek, local tiering, cloud tiering. Filer supports cross-cluster active-active replication, Kubernetes, POSIX, S3 API, encryption, Erasure Coding for warm storage, FUSE mount, Hadoop, WebDAV.

    Project mention: ZFS send/receive as a replacement for rsync | reddit.com/r/zfs | 2021-03-15

    So I will probably use it or try something like SeaweedFS.

  • GitHub repo vitess

    Vitess is a database clustering system for horizontal scaling of MySQL.

    Project mention: 101_initial_cluster.sh multiple errors trying to start mysql | reddit.com/r/vitess | 2021-04-19

    I installed their stuff with the dpkg found here: https://github.com/vitessio/vitess/releases/download/v9.0.0/vitess_9.0.0-daa6085_amd64.deb

  • GitHub repo k9s

    🐶 Kubernetes CLI To Manage Your Clusters In Style!

    Project mention: Ask HN: Show me the sexy, sexy home page of your favorite free CLI project | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-20

    Maybe not the "home page" you asked for, but https://github.com/derailed/k9s gives all the info I need/want for an amazing front end.

  • GitHub repo verdaccio

    📦🔐A lightweight private proxy registry build in Node.js
