Kuma GUI

This is the source code for the Kuma GUI. It's proudly built on Vue.js and leverages the Kongponents component library.

When running Kuma itself, the GUI is automatically served on port :5681 and is accessible in your browser at http://localhost:5681/gui. If you would like to run the GUI isolated and in development mode, this repository allows you to do so. This allows you to inspect the Vue.js components with tools like Vue.js devtools, which is available for both Firefox and Google Chrome.

The Kuma GUI documentation provides you with a walkthrough of what the GUI offers.

What is Kuma?

Kuma is a platform agnostic open-source control plane for Service Mesh and Microservices. It can run and be operated natively across both Kubernetes and VM environments, making it easy to adopt by every team in the organization.

Bundling Envoy as a data-plane, Kuma can instrument any L4/L7 traffic to secure, observe, route and enhance connectivity between any service or database. It can be used natively in Kubernetes via CRDs or via a RESTful API across other environments like VMs and Bare Metal.

While being simple to use for most use-cases, Kuma also provides policies to configure the underlying Envoy data-planes in a more fine-grained manner. By doing so, Kuma can be used by both first-time users of Service Mesh, as well as the most experienced ones.

Built by Envoy contributors at Kong 🦍.
