Working with Kubernetes

Cloud Code comes with end-to-end Kubernetes support, helping you create a new application from sample templates, customize and develop it, and deploy and preview your finished app. Cloud Code also supports you along the way with run-ready samples, out-of-the-box configuration snippets, and a tailored debugging experience.

Interactive tutorial

In this tutorial, you'll create a Kubernetes Hello World application from an existing template, test and debug the app locally, create a Google Kubernetes Engine cluster, and finally, deploy and preview your app.

Kubernetes development with Cloud Code

Beyond the tutorial, Cloud Shell has a lot to offer for Kubernetes development. Here's a snapshot of what Cloud Shell with integrated Cloud Code comes with:

  • Support for Go, Node.js, Python, Java, and .NET
  • Fully functional run and debug ready starter applications
  • Easy creation and editing of configuration files with smart templates, out-of-the-box snippets, and context-based completions
  • One-click deploy of your applications from your browser
  • 'Watch' mode to allow continuous building and real-time editing of your live application, helping you maintain a tight development inner loop
  • Automatic port-forwarding and resource cleanup on application termination
  • Debugging and logging support for applications running on Kubernetes clusters
  • Cluster creation and management with the inbuilt Kubernetes Explorer and inbuilt minikube support
