Accelerating Kubernetes Development

Source:-https://containerjournal.com Building a tool for Kubernetes developers means solving a bunch of problems (e.g., multiple clusters, kubeconfigs, secrets, kubectl functionality, how to represent the hierarchy of abstractions inside a cluster, etc.) and creating a user experience that promotes speed. A good dashboard lets you select from among multiple clusters and: See the states of everything and work with whatever you’re permissioned to access (this translates into zero need for IT operators to centrally administer dashboard-specific permissions). Drill into abstractions—see what’s
