A simple terminal dashboard for Kubernetes built with Rust
Homebrew (Mac & Linux)
brew tap kdash-rs/kdash brew install kdash # If you need to be more specific, use: brew install kdash-rs/kdash/kdash
Binaries for macOS, Linux and Windows are available on the releases page
Run KDash as a Docker container by mounting your
KUBECONFIG. For example the below for default path
docker run --rm -it -v ~/.kube/config:/root/.kube/config deepu105/kdash
You can also clone this repo and run
make docker to build a docker image locally and run it using above command
Note: This may not work properly if you run Kubernetes locally using Minikube or Kind
If you have Cargo installed then you install KDash from crates.io
cargo install kdash
You can also clone the repo and run
cargo run or
make to build and run the app
Note:: On Linux you might need to have package
xorg-dev (Debian/Ubuntu) or
xorg-x11-server-devel (Fedora) or equivalent installed for the copy to clipboard features to work

How does this compare to K9S?
K9S is a beast compared to this as it offers way more features including CRUD actions.
KDash only offers a view of most used resources with a focus on speed and UX. Really, if something is slow or have bad UX then please raise a bug. Hence the UI/UX is designed to be more user friendly and easier to navigate with contextual help everywhere and a tab system to switch between different resources easily.
At least for now there are no plans to add CRUD for resources
