Managing multiple clusters has never been easier!

Connect to one or more clusters simultaneously!


Say goodbye to context switching.

No more switching between multiple terminals or browser tabs. Aptakube can connect to multiple clusters simultaneously.

Use the same contexts as in kubectl so you can get started faster. All your pods, deployments and all other Kubernetes resources available in one view!

โ€œI built Aptakube to improve my own workflow after struggling to work effectively with multiple clusters. I can finally see all my pods in one place, regardless of which region or cloud they are. That has been a huge time saver!โ€

๐Ÿคฉ Never miss a beat!

Kubernetes objects are constantly changing, and we make it easy for you to notice those changes.


Supercharged Log Viewer.

Viewing logs in Kubernetes has never been easier. With Aptakube you can stream live and historical logs from multiple pods and containers at the same time.

Looking for something specific? Logs can be filtered and downloaded for further analysis with other tools.

Human-friendly resource view.

Stop wasting your time looking for content in enormous YAML files. YAML is great, but sometimes it's too much.

Aptakube uses a human-friendly format to display all the important things about your Kubernetes resources.

Frequently asked questions

Is it safe to use Aptakube?
Yes. Aptakube connects directly to your cluster's API server from your machine. Your cluster data, logs and connection settings will never leave your machine.
What Kubernetes versions are supported?
Aptakube follows the EKS, AKS , and GKE release calendar, which generally means the last 5 Kubernetes versions are supported. Older releases of Aptakube may still support older Kubernetes versions.
Is this another Electron app?
Nope! Aptakube is built with Tauri, a smaller, faster, and more secure alternative. Look at how small the downloaded binaries are.
Do I need to install something on my cluster?
No. Aptakube does not require any custom server-side component. The app runs on your machine and connects to your cluster's API Server, just like kubectl.
How does it compare to kubectl?

Aptakube is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) and kubectl is CLI (Command Line Interface). They have similar functionality, but Aptakube is easier to use and more intuitive. Aptakube can also connect to multiple clusters simultaneously, reducing the time it takes for you to get stuff done.

We recommend Kubectl for automation and Aptakube for day-to-day use.

There is a missing feature I need, can you implement it?
We use GitHub to track features and releases. You can submit new requests or upvote existing ones by using reactions and comments.
