Epinio has the same concept of namespaces as the underlying Kubernetes, i.e. a means of grouping applications, configurations, and services into some kind of related sets.

In contrast to Kubernetes the Epinio client however maintains local state, the current namespace, often also called the targeted namespace.

Where users of Kubernetes's client (kubectl) have to explicitly specify the namespace to work with with each command, users of Epinio's client (epinio) have one command to set and query the current namespace, and all other commands of the client use that namespace in their operation.

The relevant command is epinio target.

All other namespace management (creation, inspection, deletion) is done through the epinio namespace ensemble.

The namespace tutorial contains a full set of examples for working with namespaces.
