K9s leverages XDG to keep its configuration files under
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/k9s. The default configuration will vary across operating system so be sure to read up on the default location if you choose not to set that environment variable. The main configuration file is named
config.yml and stores various K9s specific bits. This file
will be updated by k9s to store current view and namespaces information.
