Kail to tail kubernetes logs

After the recent Searching Kubernetes Logs Without A Logging Platform post, Trevor replied to me about kail.

One tool I recently learned about is kail “kubernetes tail” https://github.com/boz/kail. It supports basically everything the built in kubectl logs command does, and also adjust to changes in the cluster. By default it shows logs from all pods, and then you filter by label, namespace, service, replica, deploy, or node to narrow down to the logs you are interested in.

Thank you, Trevor.
