Your best k8s friend Monokle is friendlier than ever! After our initial release we’ve focused on fixing bugs and improving core functionality, here comes a quick run-down!
You can now create new k8s resources directly in the Monokle UI; start by browsing to your project folder and once opened select the “New Resource” button on top of the Navigator which opens a corresponding dialog:
The new resource will added to the Navigator and opened for editing, use the Save button at the top right to save the resource to a new file or append it to an existing one (for multi-resource manifest files).
Once a resource has been saved initially the auto-save functionality will kick in as mentioned below.
Monokle now automatically validates all resources against the corresponding kubernetes 1.22.1 schemas. Resources that fail validation will show an error icon in the Navigator which can be clicked for error details.
The initial release of Monokle allowed you to filter resources on namespace only, now you can filter on a variety of properties:
The filter button at the top of the Resource Navigator opens the below dialog for these settings:
When viewing resources from a cluster these are now editable allowing you to quickly make changes and apply them back to your cluster — great for making a quick fix to a resource.
The Settings now include an option to automatically reload the last viewed folder on startup:
Navigating back and forth between selected resource is now done with buttons and corresponding Alt-Left/Right keyboard shortcuts
Monokle now automatically saves any changes you make to your resources (similar to most IDEs), and updates corresponding validations and links.
When previewing kustomizations or Helm Charts it is now possible to edit the previewed files and recreate the preview — instead of having to exit the preview before making the change. This makes debugging of kustomizations and Helm Charts a much smoother experience
On MacOS Monokle now automatically installs a monokle script allowing you to launch Monokle directly from your favorite terminal, optionally specifying a folder for Monokle to open.
Windows version coming up in the next release!
The list of things we’d like to add and fix in 1.2.0 is lengthy, major planned improvements are:
Check out the entire list on GitHub — and let us know if you’re missing something we should be adding to make your everyday life with k8s manifests and resources easier.
