A shell for working with Kubernetes

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!
