Tools

I’m a big fan of making it possible to experiment and learn with even complex platforms locally. Knative on Kind (Konk) does just that for Knative.

Another useful utility, SecretScanner does exactly what you’d think, finding secrets from file systems or container images.

Monorepos appear particularly popular with some JavaScript communities. Rush is a new toolkit helping to build and publish many packages from a common Git repo.
