fubectl

Because it's fancy-kubectl!

Prerequisites?

Installation

You can directly download the fubectl.source and save it in some directory.

Download:

curl -LO https://rawgit.com/kubermatic/fubectl/master/fubectl.source

then add to your .bashrc/.zshrc file:

[ -f <path-to>/fubectl.source ] && source <path-to>/fubectl.source

What can it do?

Like g for git but 133% more effective!

Extra!

Do you wan't to have the current kubecontext in your prompt?:

export PS1="\[$(kube_ctx_name)\] $PS1"

for the current namespace (this is currently slow, because it calls kubectl every time):

export PS1="\[$(kube_ctx_namespace)\] $PS1"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
