Kubernetes contains several built-in tools to help you work with the Kubernetes system.
minikube is a tool that
runs a single-node Kubernetes cluster locally on your workstation for
development and testing purposes.
Dashboard, the web-based user interface of Kubernetes, allows you to deploy containerized applications
to a Kubernetes cluster, troubleshoot them, and manage the cluster and its resources itself.
Helm is a tool for managing packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources. These packages are known as Helm charts.
Use Helm to:
- Find and use popular software packaged as Kubernetes charts
- Share your own applications as Kubernetes charts
- Create reproducible builds of your Kubernetes applications
- Intelligently manage your Kubernetes manifest files
- Manage releases of Helm packages
Kompose is a tool to help Docker Compose users move to Kubernetes.
Use Kompose to:
- Translate a Docker Compose file into Kubernetes objects
