Using EKS, AKS, GKE, Minikube, Rancher, k0s, k3s, OpenShift... ? They all work. Simply import the kubeconfigs for the clusters you want to work with.
At CLASTIX we use it. Recommended. We have been early adopters of Lens and always recommend it to our customers.
This is fantastic, good to know about Lens.. being able to control k8s through a GUI is really awesome.
Been using Lens for a while now, can't imagine doing my job without it, keep up the great work.
Here's a nice and free desktop app that will help you visualize and control your Kubernetes cluster(s). 🐳
I know how overwhelming managing a k8s cluster can be. You can get quickly lost in the command line.
Here comes Lens, the IDE for Kubernetes. Link is in the reply 👇
I love Lens. It’s very clean, easy to use, and provides great information at a glance! Congratulations!
I'm loving it! The best universal tool for Kubernetes. It is like finally having eyes in Kube world. Easy to spot divergencies from normal and then use different tools to deepdive.
Thanks for building Lens. Its really excellent
Hotbars. The main navigation, allowing users to build their “workflows” and “automation” within the desktop application. Users can customize items in the Hotbar by assigning different labels, colors, and icons for easy recall. LENS 5 BETA ONLY
Command Palette. Command Palette allows users to perform specific keyboard shortcuts to make the most common tasks easier. Improving accessibility and efficiency when working with Lens.
Built-In Visualizations. Lens integrates with Prometheus to visualize and see trends in resource usage metrics, including CPU, memory, network and disk, with the total capacity, actual usage, requests and limits. Detailed visualization is automatically generated for each k8s resource.
Smart Terminal. The smart terminal comes with kubectl and helm, automatically syncing the version of kubectl to match the currently selected K8S cluster API version. Lens will automatically assign the kubeconfig context to match the currently selected K8s cluster.
Helm Charts. Lens comes with Helm charts management allowing for the discovery and fast deployment of thousands of publicly available Helm charts and management of your own repositories. Explore installed Helm charts and their revisions and upgrade with a single click.
Extensions. Easily add Lens extensions from the community and cloud native ecosystem vendors or build your own. Lens Extensions are used to add custom functionality and services to accelerate development workflows for all the technologies that integrate with Kubernetes and other cloud-native technologies.
Spaces. Now, take the amazing Lens experience and share it with your whole team. Join a Space and get instant access to all their Kubernetes clusters and cloud-native resources. Need some help?
