We use a docker-based setup for other services that we need to setup and develop locally. DevKinsta appears to be docker-based as well, but the functionality exposed to end-users through the UI is extremely limited. After scrolling through the issues in this forum, it’s clear that basic functionality that I would expect from any local development toolkit is not available through DevKinsta. This includes:
- Modifying webserver configurations (in this case, nginx configs) and having those changes instantly reflected after a restart
- Adding additional hostnames, and generating TLS certificates for those hostnames.
- Working seamlessly with a software development process that includes version control (like git).
I can’t image that anything in DevKinsta is terribly proprietary, given that it’s just an electron app wrapped around
docker-compose. Please open source this code, so that users can fork it, hack on it, contribute needed improvements, and leave feedback through a public ticketing system, instead of this weird forum that I will probably never log on to again.
