In the last couple of months, the command line tools I have been using to interact with kubernetes hasn’t seen any additions. It’s a good time to write it down.
kube-ps1: Sets the current k8s ctx as info line to your prompt.
k9s: Control Panel for your k8s collector
kail: See aggregated logs from the cluster based on pattern matched filters.
k9s stands out as the most used tool. It deserves it’s own post describing it’s many features.
