Tested Kubernetes, Desktop and Browser Platforms

    Tested Kubernetes Platforms

    This section shows the different platforms where Headlamp has been tested (in-cluster) or is intended to be tested, and useful observations about it. If you have tested Headlamp on a different flavor or Kubernetes, please file a PR or issue to add your remarks to the list.

    The “works” column refers to the overall Kubernetes related functionality when running in the respective platform; it may have 3 different values:

    • ✔️ : Has been tried and works fine to the extent of what has been tested
    • ❌ : Has been tried and didn’t work or had issues that prevented a regular use of it
    • ❔: Hasn’t been tried/reported yet

    Minikube ✔️ - For exposing with an ingress, enable ingresses with minikube addons enable ingress: - There are docs about the development with Minikube.
    Vultr Kubernetes Engine ✔️ - Simple to install / expose with the regular in-cluster instructions .

    Tested Browsers

    We mostly test with ‘modern browsers’ defined as the latest version and two older versions. But we try to make Headlamp work with web standards, so it’s quite likely other standards conforming browsers will also work.
