Red Hat has announced the general availability of its Developer Sandbox for Red Hat OpenShift, a zero-cost development environment for building Kubernetes-based applications.

Red Hat’s new sandbox will help ease application development thanks to its pre-configured set of developer tools. The service also includes a private OpenShift environment within a shared, multi-tenant OpenShift cluster.

According to Red Hat, its new OpenShift sandbox’s tightly integrated infrastructure and tools offer a safe environment for developers to build new applications, add new services, create containers from source code or Dockerfiles, and more.

“Much of our work around Red Hat OpenShift has been focused on maximizing developer productivity and enabling developers to take full advantage of the power of Kubernetes, said Mithun Dhar, vice president and general manager of developer tools and programs at Red Hat.

“We do this by abstracting the underlying complexity and offering a powerful platform and ecosystem built around it. With the OpenShift sandbox and latest update to our developer tools, we are taking steps to make it even easier for developers to get started building for Kubernetes.”

Red Hat has also unveiled several updates to its developer tools. For example, Red Hat OpenShift 4.7 web console developer perspective now includes a quick add feature in the topology view for adding new components and services. Odo 2.1 helps extend the declarative developer workspace (devfile), making it easier to build and debug applications.
