Interactive Mode

Deprecation of interactive mode

Using devspace dev -i is deprecated, and the flag will be removed in the future! Make sure to change your devspace.yaml's to have an interactive mode profile instead:

...
profiles:
- name: interactive
patches:
- op: add
path: dev.interactive
value:
defaultEnabled: true
- op: add
path: dev.MY_IMAGE.entrypoint
value:
- sleep
- 99999999

This profile can be activated via -p interactive and has the same functionality as using the flag -i.

The development mode of DevSpace can be started using the -i / --interactive flag which overrides the ENTRYPOINT of an image with [sleep, 999999] and opens an interactive terminal session for one of the containers that use the 'sleeping' image. Due to the ENTRYPOINT override, the application has not been started within the container and the user can start the application manually through the interactive terminal session.

Start Interactive Mode

Start the interactive mode using this command:

devspace dev -i
