TIL Creating kubectl plugins

TIL that kubectl plugins are super simple to set up. The Getting started with kubectl plugins covers this:

Any executable file in your PATH that starts with kubectl- can be called with the kubectl command.

And yeah, it's that simple! I can run kubectl cat:

# kubectl cat
🐈 Meow brie! 🐈

Here's what it took:

# ls -ahls /usr/local/bin/kubectl-cat
8 -rwxr-xr-x  1 root  admin    46B Dec  9 20:53 /usr/local/bin/kubectl-cat
# cat /usr/local/bin/kubectl-cat

echo "🐈 Meow ${USER}! 🐈"
