I love this app. It's proven super useful for me and I use it a lot. It's great for keeping tabs on clusters and visually noting issues. Some downsides: You can't edit the kubeconfig after the fact (or I just missed something). The sidebar scrolls to the top each open which can be a minor annoyance. The events can't be organized by recency easily either. It's not much more difficult to use than kubectl. Rico, if you have other apps elsewhere or a donate lnk you should add it somewhere.

I think on a tablet/phone this would work great. I am running into issues with using a chromebook. :/ Looks like the UI becomes buggy after a few minutes of use. e.g. unable scroll either through touch or using the scroll on the trackpad. Couldnt find an intuitive way to switch namespaces outside of cluster config. Im sure its there but couldnt find it and got frustrated with the scrolling bug.

A very serviceable window into my K8s clusters. Gets the basics right but has room for improvement. 1) Lacks app protection to require device auth at startup, when means when using static credentials to access a cluster, anyone who grabs my phone unlocked gets admin access to those clusters. 2) Pod shells are frustrating to use with the virtual keyboard - constant fighting with upper case letters required. 3) Delete cluster option difficult to discover (should use idiomatic long press instead)
