November 17, 2021,Nocalhost, a product of Tencent cloud coding, has officially passed the evaluation of CNCF Technical Supervision Committee, the world’s top open source foundation, and has been successfully selected into the CNCF sandbox project.As an open source cloud native development environment, nocalhost aims to release technical value, realize innovation sharing, improve the development efficiency of micro service applications under kubernetes environment, and promote the rapid evolution of cloud native with an open attitude.
In the cloud native era, although the popularity of kubernetes further shields the complexity of “micro service” applications in the deployment and operation and maintenance stages, the cloud native environment still brings many challenges to the development. For example, after each coding, the development needs to complete a series of processes such as rebuilding the image, pushing it to the image warehouse and modifying the workload image version to view the coding effect, which directly leads to poor development experience and low efficiency.
In addition, the cloud native technology stack has a large span and the architecture design is close to the business needs, which puts higher requirements on developers, and the consequent enterprise recruitment and employment costs are also rising. Therefore, the current cloud native development tools still can not meet the needs at this stage, and the missing capabilities need to be further supplemented.
The emergence of nocalhost has benefited developersNear localized development experience, using nocalhost to develop kubernetes application does not need to rebuild the image, update the image version and wait for the cluster to schedule the pod process. The local coding takes effect in real time, which greatly improves the efficiency. Nocalhost also provides convenient one click Run and one click debugging functions to further optimize the development experience in the cloud native environment.
In addition, nocalhost provides JetBrains and vscode plug-ins for developers, which can be started quickly in only 2 minutes.
In addition, nocalhost provides a server dashboard for enterprises to help enterprises systematically manage kubernetes applications, developers and various development and testing environments.

New technology is the driving force for the vigorous development of the industry, and open source is the fertile soil for new technology. At present, Tencent has independently opened more than 130 projects on GitHub, with a cumulative number of stars of more than 370000. It is one of the technology companies with the largest contribution to open source in the world. As one of Tencent’s open source projects, nocalhost has been completely hosted on GitHub since it was opened to the public on December 19, 2020. The accumulated GitHub star has reached 900 +, and was selected into CNCF landscape on January 21, 2021. future,Nocalhost will continue to adhere to Tencent’s open source spirit and the product concept of “returning development to original and simple”, continue to polish products, firmly embrace the open source ecology, and continue to contribute to simplifying the difficulty of cloud native development and accelerating the popularization of cloud native.
The productivity of developers based on the cloud and the number of original tools in the cloud are not worthy of the attention of NoCal developers in the whole industry. We expect that cloud native will not only greatly improve the application architecture, service operation and maintenance and elastic cost, but also make it easier for developers to develop and debug cloud applications.

The implementation of modern efficiency tools has gradually shifted from the “top-down” management model to the “bottom-up” value driven. Developer experience is an area that has been neglected for a long time. I believe that while nocalhost brings more convenient development experience to developers, it will also set off a “bottom-up” upsurge driven by product value.
