Unikube is still in an early state, but we are working hard to implement more features. The following list should help you understand, what Unikube can currently do. We also provide a little outlook towards what the future will bring.
Automated local cluster provision
You decide your infrastructure setup and Unikube can provide your developers with an exact copy of the environment with ease.
Developers can now easily access all services and resources within your project, without having to circle back to operations. You just manage the permission rights. This makes developing in service based architectures a lot easier.
Automated infrastructure documentation
Your manifests are the best description of how your service should work and what connection is desired. That includes environment variables and secrets, as well as service names and how to reach them. Unikube automates that documentation and provides it to the developers.
Features of the Unikube Command Line Interface (CLI)
Easy project access
You get a login and a few CLI-Commands. Within a few minutes you are ready to write code for any project you have access to.
Access to all necessary services
Sometimes you need access to other applications to work on features for your own service. Unikube makes sure, that you can integrate properly already at the development stage.
Cluster spin up in less than 140 seconds
Yes. It's that fast and takes only a couple of commands. No additional installs, Unikube takes care of everything.
Features of the Unikube Web Interface
Management of all projects in the organisation
Use the web application to create organisations and projects. It's really easy and convenient and will give you great oversight.
Easy permission management for all team members
Not everyone should have access to everything. Hence, Unikube allows you to manage permissions of your developers from a central place.
Easily integrate Git repositories with Helm charts and SOPS (secret operations)
Just connect the repositories where your manifests live and you are ready to go. You can add SOPS providers (for instance a PGP key or any popular key management service) to Unikube in order to decrypt values for the developers. No more secret information flying around your organization.
