K9s provides a terminal UI to interact with your Kubernetes clusters. The aim of this project is to make it easier to navigate, observe and manage your applications in the wild. K9s continually watches Kubernetes for changes and offers subsequent commands to interact with your observed resources.


  • This snap has two editors bundled, Nano (default) and Neovim. You can also launch external editors with xdg-open.
  • If you use external commands in kubectl, they need to be moved inside the sandbox.

For more information, see below.


snap install k9s-nsg

To alias it to k9s type:

sudo snap alias k9s-nsg k9s
