Kubernetes is not easy on devs. Your tooling should help developers throughout the application lifecycle. On the first day, on any day.
Skip the boilerplate, the walls of yaml, and deploy services following the hard earned company best practices. Even if you are new to Kubernetes.
The Gimlet UI is focused on a single git repository, a single application, where you can follow realtime events in Kubernetes, catch errors, or deploy any of your git commits.
Pick a previously deployed version from the audit log and rollback to it on the UI.
Gimlet gathers the required information for application operation. Have a pod in CrashLoopBackOff? Gimlet gathers the logs and puts in front of you whether on the UI, or on Slack.
Helping tool makers
The Kubernetes ecosystem comes with nice building blocks and the promise that you can build your internal platform. But you need glue, lots of glue. Let us help with the common tooling.
Feature branches on their own subdomains. With branch patterns and cleanup policy.
Notion of your environments and the process to promote your builds through them. From Staging to Production.
Process and UI tooling to promote any git version to any environment and an audit log to rollback to any previous revision.
Deployment notifications and deployment related errors and logs where they are most visible.
Helping tool makers
People chose the Kubernetes ecosystem to be in charge of their infrastructure. Gimlet won't work against you.
Built on Helm and FluxCD with glue, lots of glue.
The gitops repository has all the state. And we document every automation we provide and expose intermediate state in the gitops repo should you need to extend the logic.
Gitops allows us to be fully transparent in what Gimlet does. Also lowers your lock-in risk.
In-house tooling is great, it does exactly what you need. However day-2 considerations often fall off the roadmap.
Thanks to the gitops approach, all application and environment configuration is versioned. Should you need to rebuild a whole environment, just point kubectl at the gitops repo.
You need better controls in your software supply chain? Gimlet can enforce signed commits and compliance rules.
