Remote - Kubernetes
The Remote - Kubernetes extension uses Okteto to move your development environment to Kubernetes.
Kubernetes, Okteto and VS Code make a great development environment because you can:
- Forget about building, pushing or deploying containers.
- Launch reproducible development environment with all your tools in seconds.
- Automatically synchronize your code between local and remote environments.
- Eliminate integration issues by developing the same way code runs in production.
- Keep using your favorite tools locally.
The extension starts a development environment in your Kubernetes cluster by using https://github.com/okteto/okteto. Once the environment is ready, the extension prompts you to open it directly in VS Code using the Visual Studio Code Remote - SSH extension.
- VS Code 1.38 or newer.
- Deploy access to a Kubernetes cluster (you can use https://cloud.okteto.com/, Okteto's free managed Kubernetes service for developers).
