Add a Resource
While using Monokle Desktop, you can directly add new K8s resources. Once you have browsed and added your project folder, click on the Create Resource button at the top of the navigator to open the Create Resource drop down.
Select "New from scratch" or New from template".
New from Scratch
While creating a resource, it is possible to select an existing resource as a template from the drop-down menu. The options for this template are Save to folder, Add to file and Don't save.
If the last drop down is left as Don't save, that resource will be added to the Navigator resources but it will be highlighted in yellow:
These “unsaved” resources will have to be saved by the user to be able to reuse them. Clicking on a yellow resource will show the Save button in the Editor panel to save the highlighted resource.
New from Template
Monokle Desktop allows the use of templates to start a new project via the Start from a template option:
The Create a Project from a Template dialog appears:
Name your project, select its location and click Next: Select a Template.
Monokle Desktop includes a default set of templates which are installed automatically when starting Monokle Desktop for the first time and available in the Templates Explorer when working with your Monokle Desktop projects:
Check out the Monokle Desktop Default Templates Plugin repository to see the complete list of templates that are included along with their corresponding schemas and manifests.
