kubectl roadmap

kubectl is the Kubernetes CLI.

If you’d like to contribute, please read the conventions and familiarize yourself with existing commands.

Owner: @kubernetes/kubectl

Label: component/kubectl

Motivation: kubectl brainstorm

Add new commands / subcommands / flags

Alternative interfaces

  • Create a terminal based console, ref docker console (video)
  • Add kubectl sh, an interactive shell, or make a kubectlshell in contrib and make bash completion part of it (ref pythonshell)
  • Think about how/whether to invoke generation commands such as kubectl run or kubectl create configmap in bulk, declaratively, such as part of the apply flow.
  • ChatOps bot – such as kubebot (add to tools documentation)

Improve help / error messages / output
