kube-cleaner is a utility to keep your kubectl config-file in check.
Let's say you're using
kops to manage Kubernetes clusters on AWS. You're not
upgrading your clusters in-place but instead, you replace your clusters
regularly. Maybe you've moved from
minikube to Docker's Docker for Desktop. Or
you're setting up lots of clusters for clients that you don't need anymore after the contract is done.
There are several valid reasons for your
kubectl config to grow.
Of course you can manually clean them up or open
$HOME/.kube/config in your text editor and edit
YAML by hand, but you're not from the stone age, are you?
kube-cleaner makes it easy to keep track of your clusters, users and contexts
and to delete them, as soon as you no longer need them.
yarn global add kube-cleaner
npm install -g kube-cleaner
This assumes your yarn/npm-
PATH is setup correctly. Please refer to their
kube-cleaner is not an available command after installation.
