In our v0.29 update, we wanted to address a lot of the issues reported by our users. Here is a list of the changes as we continue to build in more features.
Thank you for your amazing feedback and for sharing Infra App with your teammates and friends. We really appreciate it. If you want to download or share Infra App, it's now available for direct download on our site. https://infra.app/download
Please note: Linux version does not have auto-update yet.
For Infra App v0.28, we are launching a whole new menu bar app along with changes in how we calculate CPU / Memory utilization requests/limits. This menu bar app will provide the foundation for some of the features we've been working on, and I want to share some of that with you today.
Menu bar app - Notifications / Cluster statuses coming in the future
Many of you have told us when using Infra App that you're looking for instant insights into what is happening inside your Kubernetes cluster - statuses, events, logs and other data to ultimately answer some fundamental questions. Is my app up? How do I find the golden metrics (latency, traffic, errors, saturation of services) quickly? Can I get notified about potential issues?
Infra App being a desktop app can start providing quick notifications on the apps or services that you care about. Below are screenshots of what we've been working on. In this example, my WordPress app had a pod that went down, and Infra App automatically notified me. And clicking on the notification will take me directly to the Workload page for me to start troubleshooting.
For multi-clusters or clusters with many errors, Infra App can start showing warning icons for you to check.
We want your feedback on this as we iterate on this experience before releasing it. Please contact us at email@example.com to give us your thoughts or use the feedback button directly from the app.
Other changes in v0.28:
Infra App has been updated to v0.27. For this release, we want to quickly release what many of you have requested: show the age of pods, use 'bash' as the default shell if the container has bash, and many other bug fixes.
Within the workload details, you will now find pods with their creation time listed under the 'Age' column.
For the terminal within Infra App, we've also made 'bash' the default shell if it's available in the container. If not, Infra App will still use bourne shell (sh).
Infra App has been updated to v0.26. This update includes minor changes to the aesthetics to be easier on your eyes and includes many backend changes for future updates as we continue to address cluster connectivity problems and ensure that we're adding the resources/data you want to see.
This week, we've documented some of the basic on-boarding material on our docs page. Please keep your feedback coming on your needs.
For all the new users who we haven't had a Zoom call with yet, attached is an overview ofInfra App to help you get started.
Logs tab. Infra App will automatically aggregate all the logs for this workload from different pods and containers in real-time. By default the log streamer will auto-refresh when the scroll bar is scrolled to the bottom. The log stream will stop auto-scrolling when you move the scroll bar away from the bottom.
Events tab. In the events tab, Infra App automatically fetches all the related events pertaining to this workload -- such as volumes, endpoints, controllers, and more.
YAML tab. YAML tab will show you the YAML file used to set-up the workload.
This week (v0.25) we are rolling out many quality-of-life fixes in the app many of you wrote to us about -- fixes for stagnant data, cluster switching errors, and unable to work with clusters configured with RBAC.
Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in having a Linux version available to use either on your other workstation or for sharing with your teammates who are only on Linux, we've now made it available. The direct download is available at https://infra.app/download
We've made changes to Infra.app to support RBAC configured on many of your clusters. Infra.app will now require fewer permissions to access your clusters.
Many of you have pinged us regarding data stream not being live. We've looked into this and made many improvements in this area. Your data should be live-streaming and we will work to make that experience good. In the case of network disconnects, waking up from sleep, etc, Infra.app will now detect connectivity to the cluster and make the necessary back-off to try reconnecting when your network or cluster is back.
Thank you for the amazing feedback and share. We really appreciate it. If you want to download or share Infra.app, it's now available for direct download on our site. https://infra.app
