Another month - another release for Monokle - our open source desktop tool for making the lives of all dedicated kubernetes manifest/yaml herders out there a little/lot easier!
As always we’ve tried to pack a punch - lot’s of new features to enjoy, let’s dive in.
For those of you that don’t thrive in well-indented YAML - these are for you. Up until now Monokle has sported Form-based editing for ConfigMap resources only, now we’ve made the following additions:
As before Monokle will keep the source yaml in sync with what you put in the editor (preserving comments and ordering to the best of its ability).
Creating new resources has now been made substantially easier:
Kustomize and Helm sections now have their dedicated panels in the left part of the window.
instead of taking valuable space from your resources in the middle. If your folder contains kustomizations or helm charts these will now be available there instead, of course with maintained preview functionality.
Furthermore, we’ve moved kustomization patches away from the resource navigator (since they technically weren’t always resources) and now show them in the Kustomize tab as well - see bottom left in the screenshot above.
We’ve also added corresponding hotkeys so you can easily navigate to each the left tabs with your keyboard:
The source editor has received some love;
The cluster-compare functionality has been improved with the possibility to replace local resources with those in your cluster:
To help you learn and understand Kubernetes resources we’ve added a documentation link to the top of the editor:
As before, the source editor already has context-sensitive popups containing links to corresponding documentation:
That’s it for now,
And Monokle 1.5.0 has even more manifest-goodness coming up - stay tuned by starring us on GitHub ;-)
We’re proud to announce the release of Monokle Desktop version 2.4 which brings with it seamless synchronization between Monokle Desktop and Monokle Cloud.
Save time by shifting YAML resource validation to the pre-deployment phase for more functional and secure deployments.
