version 1.1.0 — November 26, 2019


Kubewise is a simple multi-platform desktop client for Kubernetes®. In the same way the kubectl command requires only a valid kubeconfig file to run commands against a Kubernetes cluster, Kubewise requires you just to configure one or more valid kubeconfig files to interact with the corresponding Kubernetes clusters.

Main features:

  • Support for multiple kubeconfig files.
  • UI-driven interaction with the most frequently used Kubernetes entities.
  • One-click terminal with the proper KUBECONFIG env variable set.
  • Generation of custom kubeconfig files for a given namespace.
  • Highlight sustaniability and security-related data.

Kubewise is a desktop application built with HTML, JavaScript, CSS and Node.js, and it runs on Electron, a framework for building cross platform apps using web technologies. So for running it, basically, all you need is:

  • Any modern macOS, Windows or Linux (Debian-based) OS.
  • kubectl v1.14.0+ installed to access Kubernetes v1.14.0+ clusters.


Instructions are easy as 1 2 3:

  1. Download the proper deliverable for your platform and install it accordingly.
  2. Run the Kubewise application and select your first kubeconfig file.
  3. Enjoy!
