I feel you. About a month ago I was fighting with the same feeling. In the end, decided to use Kubernetes only for a single piece of infrastructure so it's all pretty manageable through scripts. Managing secrets in particular is a pain in the ass.

One route I started checking but didn't commit to was using Ansible. They have a relatively good Kubernetes playbook and a facility to store secrets. That said, every damn task needs to be pointed to the K8S API endpoint, which is not the greatest.

Agree - we've been talking about how we can more natively tie the inventory into clusters, contexts, and apps. The host focus of Ansible doesn't always map to other domains, but I think it has a real chance with Kube.
