Top 23 Kubernete Open-Source Projects

  • GitHub repo kubernetes

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    Project mention: Need help debugging emptyDir volumes with init containers | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-10-15

    It just seemed to me that this is something that should be available and I just don't know how to tell it to k8s correctly. As I read this thread, I see that I'm not the only one. But of course, if that is for some reason not the right solution, I'd adapt.

  • GitHub repo netdata

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

    Project mention: Is there a process monitor in umbrel? that tells if the process or apps are running ok? | reddit.com/r/getumbrel | 2021-10-12

    I've been playing with https://github.com/netdata/netdata lately. It provides a ton of metrics out of the box. `systemd` should (re)start all the services relevant for Umbrel. But I came to realize I don't need metrics or daemons. I need actionable alerts or notifications.

  • Scout APM

    Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

  • GitHub repo etcd

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

    Project mention: Package Management Nightmare | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-10-12

    They have an open issue for it and looks like no blockers, and a PR bumping the otel version, so it looks like it's moving.

  • GitHub repo traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

    Project mention: Traefik 2.5 - What a Mesh! | dev.to | 2021-10-11

    Traefik Labs keeps on doing giant leaps and integrating Consul Connect is another step beyond for Traefik Proxy. This indicates the path of this product is humble but reliable and flexible, with an open-minded philosophy behind that is never scared of comparing and collaborating with other important competitors and actors in the CNCF big landscape picture.

  • GitHub repo Kong

    🦍 The Cloud-Native API Gateway

    Project mention: Difference between Reverse Proxy, Load Balancer and API Gateway | reddit.com/r/devops | 2021-09-29

    I am seeing different companies taking different approach. I am not sure anymore where each should be actually used. On top of that tech like Kong make me question whether API Gateway should be one thing for all. Some perspective into this would be really appreciated.

  • GitHub repo istio

    Connect, secure, control, and observe services.

    Project mention: From Monolith to Microservices and Beyond | dev.to | 2021-10-05

    A Service Mesh is a dedicated and configurable infrastructure layer with the intent of handling network-based communication between services. Istio and Linkerd are two examples of implementations. Most implementations usually have two main components: the Control plane and the Data plane. The Control plane manages and configures the proxies that compose the Data plane. Those Data plane proxies are deployed as sidecars and can provide functionalities like service discovery, retries, timeouts, circuit breaking, fault injection, and much more.

  • 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: Awesome Cheatsheets | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-10-13
  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo minikube

    Run Kubernetes locally

    Project mention: Kubernetes-based development with Devspace | dev.to | 2021-10-15

    Or you can manually set up your own kind, minikube, or docker for desktop cluster.

  • GitHub repo Dokku

    A docker-powered PaaS that helps you build and manage the lifecycle of applications

    Project mention: Tools / software / resources library | reddit.com/r/opensource | 2021-10-17
  • GitHub repo OpenFaaS

    OpenFaaS - Serverless Functions Made Simple

    Project mention: Kotlin and FaaS, an impossible union? | dev.to | 2021-10-17

    Some time ago, I read a post describing how to run a serverless Kotlin function on OpenFaaS. While the content is technically correct, I believe the concept itself is very wrong. Such posts can lead people to make ill-advised decisions: "because we can" is hardly a winning strategy. in this post, I'd like to first explain why the JVM platform is a bad idea for FaaS. Then, I'll proceed to propose alternatives to use Kotlin nonetheless.

  • GitHub repo helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

    Project mention: Kubernetes-based development with Devspace | dev.to | 2021-10-15

    Typically, our IAM service is a third-party like keycloak or fusionauth which we can easily deploy on Kubernetes by means of a helm chart. Helm is a very practical package manager for Kubernetes. For example, a typical fusionauth deployment would look like something along these lines:

  • GitHub repo Nacos

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

  • GitHub repo JHipster

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

    Project mention: Ć Programming Language | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-08

    Not talking about the interesting naming or the circumstances around this particular implementation, what do the people on HN think about the concept of such transpilation?

    I recall taking a course in university about model driven programming - the idea of creating an abstract representation of logic, interfaces and other system components and then generating either full implementations or stubs in multiple languages was an interesting one, even if implementations were really hard to get right.

    In practice, i've mostly only seen one language specific model driven design tools, like JHipster (https://www.jhipster.tech/) or the likes of JPA be reasonably successful, since there's a lot of problems with supporting abstractions across different languages and runtimes, but what has been the experience of others in that regard?

  • GitHub repo k3s

    Lightweight Kubernetes

    Project mention: Cloudflare Uses HashiCorp Nomad | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-15

    actually that is not really true - i strongly urge you to try out http://k3s.io/ or https://k0sproject.io/

    these are full-fledged, certified k8s distributions that run on raspberry pi as well as all the way in production.


  • GitHub repo rancher

  • GitHub repo dapr

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

    Project mention: Do you guys use frameworks with Go for backend development? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-10-08

    https://dapr.io/ might be a fit sometimes

  • GitHub repo k9s

    🐶 Kubernetes CLI To Manage Your Clusters In Style!

    Project mention: Making Kubernetes Operations Easy with kubectl Plugins | dev.to | 2021-10-01

    There are also other tools out there beyond kubectl plugins, which can improve your productivity and simplify Kubernetes operations. The most prominent one is k9s, so if plugins aren't enough and you want to grab a bigger hammer, then this might be a right tool for you.

  • GitHub repo kops

    Project mention: Fully automated Kubernetes deployment on AWS using spot instances | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-09-10

  • GitHub repo vitess

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

    Project mention: Comparing AWS's RDS and PlanetScale | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-05

    This offering really isn't apples to apples. It would be better compared against AWS Aurora or https://vitess.io/
