Krew helps you discover and install kubectl plugins on your machine.

You can install and use [a wide variety of][list] kubectl plugins to enhance your Kubernetes experience.

Let's get started:

  1. [Install and set up]({{<ref "setup/">}}) Krew on your machine.

  2. Download the plugin list:

    {{<prompt>}}kubectl krew update
  3. Discover plugins available on Krew:

    {{<prompt>}}kubectl krew search
    {{<output>}}NAME                            DESCRIPTION                                         INSTALLED

  1. Choose a plugin from the list and install it:

    {{<prompt>}}kubectl krew install access-matrix
  2. Use the installed plugin:

    {{<prompt>}}kubectl access-matrix
  3. Keep your plugins up-to-date:

This is practically all you need to know to start using Krew.
