Warp is a kubectl plugin that allows you to execute your local code directly in Kubernetes without slow image build process. It’s MIT licensed and available at GitHub.

How it works:

The kubectl warp command runs your command inside a container, the same way as  kubectl run does, but before executing the command, it synchronizes all your files into the container.

For example, to run and live reload NodeJS project in Kubernetes, you can

kubectl warp is basically just combination of, simplified and modified version of  kubectl runsshd-rsync container and  kubectl port-forward to access the container.
