Lens IDE is a developer-friendly offering as a unified tool to manage the Kubernetes cluster across cloud vendors, and on-premises Kubernetes in a similar way. This improves the overall productivity of the team while managing multiple clusters with uniformity.
What are the key features?
- Simplicity – for developers, an IDE provides a unified view of interacting with multiple Kubernetes clusters. Though kubectl is a great command-line interface, having an IDE reduces the complexity of all the commands and related parameters.
- Observability – unified view of monitoring in real-time with quick view of events, errors, statistics, logs, etc.
- Troubleshooting – a visual way to troubleshoot errors and issues and helps to navigate quickly to find the root cause in an interactive way.
- Opensource & Free – built by the community and for the community – you can use it for free and can also contribute. Ability to run it as an IDE on a local machine is a great advantage for development team. Click here for the link to GitHub source.
- Uniformity – whether it is a cloud-service provide managed Kubernetes cluster (e.g. EKS, AKS, GKE) or specialized Kubernetes provider (e.g. Rancher, D2IQ, OpenShift), you can manage all of them using the same interface. This is simplicity with elegance to manage any Kubernetes managed service in an uniform way.
