Buildkit-cli for kubectl

Building images on the cluster

Developing and testing on a kubernetes cluster usually means building a new image, pushing it to your registry, then pulling and redeploying your containers. Especially for local clusters, like on premises or even on your own workstation in a vm, it would be nice to be able to build your images directly on the nodes, making turn around much faster. Buildkit already exists, but now a new github project makes this even easier by giving you a kubectl extension to build directly on your cluster using regular kubectl commands.
