What’s new for Monokle?🧐

We promised and we delivered – DOUBLE

The past month has been a busy one for our Monokle team and we’re incredibly proud to announce new releases and updates across our suite of tools.

As promised, this past month we delivered a more powerful version of our Policy IDE complete with a way to integrate it into your pull request: our new GitHub bot makes it easier than ever for team leaders to provide guardrails to their entire DevOps team through the power of policy enforcement to ensure higher quality deployments and faster time to market.

We also completed a massive performance overhaul on our Desktop tool creating a much faster experience when loading projects with an extensive number of resources with our Multiple Files Editor and supercharging your cluster connections with an improved Cluster Insights Interface.

You’d think we’d take a break after that but we’re in the zone and have more upgrades already in the works and ready to roll out soon.

What’s coming?

- A more compliant Policy IDE with support for private repos. Our free browser-based IDE will make it even easier to provide guardrails for teams and hook validations into your GitOps workflow with support for private repos and industry-standard policies like NIST and CIS for a more productive push left.

- A more powerful version of Desktop – especially for Helm users. With continued improvements to Cluster Mode (events, actions, helm-charts, etc) we will also make creating and editing Helm charts easier than ever. 

If you don’t see something you want or if you have an idea of how we can make Monokle fit your specific use case better, get in touch! Book a 30 min meeting with us or chat with our team via Discord.

Community & Events 

KubeCon EU was epic!

With more than 10,000 in-person attendees, KubeCon EU was a fantastic opportunity for us to share our love of YAML and policies with the Kubernetes world at large. 

We had the pleasure of meeting many of our users as hundreds of people stopped by our Monokle booth to discover all the ways our suite of tools can help them troubleshoot YAML manifests and employ policies in their DevOps workflow to empower teams to achieve higher-quality deployments.
