Kn

go.dev reference Go Report Card Releases LICENSE Slack Status codecov

The Knative client kn is your door to the Knative world. It allows you to create Knative resources interactively from the command line or from within scripts.

kn offers you:

  • Full support for managing all features of Knative Serving (services, revisions, traffic splits)
  • Growing support for Knative eventing, closely following its development (managing of sources & triggers)
  • A plugin architecture similar to that of kubectl plugins
  • A thin client-specific API in golang which helps with tasks like synchronously waiting on Knative service write operations.
  • An easy integration of Knative into Tekton Pipelines by using kn in a Tekton Task.

This client uses the Knative Serving and Knative Eventing APIs exclusively so that it will work with any Knative installation, even those that are not Kubernetes based. It does not help with installing Knative itself though. Please refer to the various Knative installation options for how to install Knative with its prerequisites.
