Kubernetes: Namespaces

Kubernetes supports multiple virtual clusters backed by the same physical cluster. These virtual clusters are called namespaces.

More info here: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/overview/working-with-objects/namespaces/


List namespaces: 

kubectl get namespaces

but handy to see labels attached so run:

kubectl get namespaces --show-labels



error: the server doesn’t have a resource type “namespaces”

Check what context you’re using. E.g. kubectx and then check if that cluster is running. E.g. minikube status.

Practical examples: Deploy a WordPress app using Kubernetes on AWS
