An interactive kubernetes client featuring auto-complete using go-prompt.


kube-prompt accepts the same commands as the kubectl, except you don't need to provide the kubectl prefix. So it doesn't require the additional cost to use this cli.

And you can integrate other commands via pipe (|).

>>> get pod | grep web
