We tried out Kubevious and we think it’s fantastic! It’s an open-source tool that provides a highly user-friendly graphical interface for Kubernetes. It provides hints to operators to identify configurational and operational errors as well as uncover security issues. We also work with K9s, which provides a remarkably user-friendly terminal UI to interact with our Kubernetes clusters. K9s works really well with Kubie, which allows us to connect to multiple Kubernetes clusters simultaneously (making it another immensely useful K8s tool).
