Top 23 Kubernete Open-Source Projects

  • GitHub repo kubernetes

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    Project mention: Troubleshooting deployment of k3s to Raspberry Pi cluster | reddit.com/r/k3s | 2021-11-25

    That error message seems to give much more results, such as: https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/issues/36575

  • GitHub repo netdata

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

    Project mention: netdata/netdata: Real-time performance monitoring, done right! https://www.netdata.cloud | reddit.com/r/devopsish | 2021-11-04
  • 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: etcd | reddit.com/r/JavaOnTheEdge | 2021-11-07
  • GitHub repo traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

    Project mention: Building a bare-metal Kubernetes cluster on Raspberry Pi | dev.to | 2021-11-26

    K3s comes by default with traefik as the ingress controller. I heard great things about it, but I prefer to use ingress-nginx. This is simply because I'm more familiar with it. You can choose pretty much any ingress controller you want for Kubernetes, so pick one according to your own preferences.

  • GitHub repo Kong

    🦍 The Cloud-Native API Gateway

    Project mention: 27 open-source tools that can make your Kubernetes workflow easier 🚀🥳 | dev.to | 2021-11-09
  • GitHub repo istio

    Connect, secure, control, and observe services.

    Project mention: Kubernetes Cluster API v1.0, Production Ready | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-27

    k8s is the whole enchilada: IaaS, routing, container mgmt., etc.

    So terraform plus AWS ECS is roughly equivalent to k8s (or AWS ASGs and AMIs plus Docker.)

    A crude analogy is that k8s is the distributed systemd, and is the most portable.

    Saying "I know k8s." today generally also means you know the k8s ecosystem, including Istio, AWS Calico, etc.

    (I tell startups just to use EC2 and "yum update" as long as possible.)

    Linux, Jenkins, AWS, SRE, Prometheus, Docker, Python, Ansible, Git, Kubernetes, Terraform, OpenStack, SQL, NoSQL, Azure, GCP, DNS, Elastic, Network, Virtualization. DevOps Interview Questions

    Project mention: What language should I learn after Java and Python and how should I use my knowledge to learn about their applications in the real world? | reddit.com/r/computerscience | 2021-11-21

    What about the applications in the real world? Github are the answer. Some weeks ago I found a repository where a list of ideas to create your technologies show: link. If you are lost, try to guide yourself through roadmaps. Or just search for exercises on GitHub about your profession. Example: DevOps Exercises.

  • GitHub repo JHipster

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

    Project mention: YAML: It's Time to Move On | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-14

    Thanks for the link, but not necessarily.

    How WSDL and the code generation around it worked, was that you'd have a specification of the web API (much like OpenAPI attempts to do), which you could feed into any number of code generators, to get output code which has no coupling to the actual generator at runtime, whereas Pyotr is geared more towards validation and goes into the opposite direction: https://pyotr.readthedocs.io/en/latest/client/

    The best analogy that i can think of is how you can also do schema first application development - you do your SQL migrations (ideally in an automated way as well) and then just run a command locally to generate all of the data access classes and/or models for your database tables within your application. That way, you save your time for 80% of the boring and repetitive stuff while minimizing the risks of human error and inconsistencies, while nothing preventing you from altering the generated code if you have specific needs (outside of needing to make it non overrideable, for example, a child class of a generated class). Of course, there's no reason why this can't be applied to server code either - write the spec first and generate stubs for endpoints that you'll just fill out.

    Similarly there shouldn't be a need for a special client to generate stubs for OpenAPI, the closest that Python in particular has for now is this https://github.com/openapi-generators/openapi-python-client

    However, for some reason, model driven development never really took off, outside of niche frameworks, like JHipster: https://www.jhipster.tech/

    Furthermore, for whatever reason formal specs for REST APIs also never really got popular and aren't regarded as the standard, which to me seems silly: every bit of client code that you write will need a specific version to work against, which should be formalized.
