I honestly think that the Ingress is way more complicated for beginners to understand then a service type LoadBalancer routing to a reverse proxy.
At least I had a hard time in the beginning understanding the Ingress really works.


From what I understand, Ingresses are just a way of saying "Here's a path, it corresponds to this service." However, setting up an Ingress controller is, in some cases, needlessly complicated imo. I like that minikube and GKE ship with one by default, but that didn't prepare me for having to set one up on my own, especially given if I want it to use HTTPS.
