A shell for working with Kubernetes

, 2019-01-09

I’m always a fan of tools that can make my life easier.

One tool that I’ve recently come across is kube-shell, an integrated shell for working with Kubernetes. What’s great about it is that it’s cross-platform and has intellisense for kubectl.

Installation is a cinch! The prerequisites are python and pip, which can be downloaded from here.

N.B. – python and pip are also prerequisites for mssql-cli which I also highly recommend you check out.

Make sure that python is added to your path environment variable and then you’re good to go and install kube-shell: –

pip install kube-shell

Once installed, typing kube-shell takes you into the shell…and you’re off!

How cool is that?

Thanks for reading!

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
