NOTE This project is currently not under active development.

The project is currently in a transition phase. There are known issues with Kubernetes 1.8/1.9 clusters. There is no ETA to fix those issues but we are trying to find a sustainable path. As always PR welcome. Thanks for your understanding.

Cabin, the mobile app for Kubernetes

Cabin is a Mobile application for Kubernetes. It is loaded with features as shown in the screenshots and the screencast. It is a mobile native version of the Kubernetes dashboard with intuitive finger actions to manipulate Kubernetes resources. For example you can delete pods with a single left swipe. You can also add, delete labels, scale deployments with a finger scroll, access logs of your pods, run simple exec commands in containers, trigger rolling-updates by changing the image of your deployments, etc...

Currently still in dev is support for Helm charts. You can view Charts repositories and launch charts.

GKE users will enjoy the ability to create clusters directly from their phone and also add pre-existing GKE clusters to the application to view existing resources.

Cabin is made with React Native. For development purposes you can run the application using both iOS and Android simulators.

We would love your help to make it even cooler !

Run Locally Using Simulators

To develop and test the application you need to setup your local environment, then run the simulator. First, install react-native-cli then run the packager in one terminal. Then in another terminal launch the simulator with the react-native command. See below for more details.

First, install React Native CLI tools with:

npm install -g react-native-cli

⚠️ Follow the Getting Started guide to make sure you have everything ready to run a react-native app.

Run the packager (for both iOS and Android)

Now install yarn. On OSX simply do brew install yarn.

Use yarn to install node dependencies:

yarn install

In one terminal session, run the packager:

yarn start

Now depending on your target platform, run the simulator using the appropriate react-native command:


Install the iOS dependencies:

gem install cocoapods
cd iOS/ && pod install

Note: You may have to remove an existing Podfile.lock file. See grpc/grpc#12172 for more information.

Run the app on iOS:

react-native run-ios

If the command above fails (See #84), you can compile the iOS project directly from Xcode by opening the iOS/cabin.xcworkspace.

You may run into Xcode setup issues like xcrun: error: unable to find utility "instruments", not a developer


Due to having to use a feature that was removed from React Native, we have to use a fork and thus compile it from source (See #88). Follow the steps at Build React Native from source to correctly set up your environment.

Run the app on Android:

react-native run-android
