  • Add Kube Karp to the Networking section

    Add Kube Karp to the Networking section

    Why This Is Awesome?

    Kube Karp's unique feature is that it can load balance the Kube API Server without external tools which other LB solutions can not do at the time of writing (e.g., Porter, MetalLB). It does not provide LoadBalancer resources for exposed services, it only manages a floating virtual IP accross nodes in the same subnet, so you can always reference the cluster with the same IP address.

  • Adding werf to CI/CD

    Adding werf to CI/CD

    Describe Why This Is Awesome

    werf is a powerful tool to implement GitOps using the existing technologies including Git, Kubernetes, Helm, and any CI system of choice. It improves what they offer (like deploy logging and failures detection for Helm, auto-cleaning Docker images based on Git history, etc.) and "glues" them offering some other features like distributed building and built-in local development support. Currently, it has 2,2k GitHub stars.

    P.S. I've also fixed the number of :fire:'s for our shell-operator since it's over 1k stars already.
