Learn about the native tools, including what are they, and why are they useful.
- [Instructor] Kubernetes provides a handful of built in tools to help you work with the Kubernetes system in an easy way. Before we get started, let's talk a little bit about the native tools in the Kubernetes ecosystem. First up, this kubectl, which is the Kubernetes client. I'll go into how it works and the specific use cases of how I've seen it being used in large enterprises or with many applications. Next, there's Minikube, kops, and kube admin. These are all the tools that bring up the Kubernetes environment.
They're at the heart of the Kubernetes install. I'll talk about them in detail and share the perspective of these from an installation standpoint and where each one plays a role. Finally, there's dashboard, kubefed, Kompose, and Helm, all tools to make your application, cluster management, and development lives easier. Now that you have a general idea of what all the tools are, let's take a closer look.
