Skaffold is a command line tool that facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes applications. You can iterate on your application source code locally then deploy to local or remote Kubernetes clusters. Skaffold handles the workflow for building, pushing and deploying your application. It also provides building blocks and describe customizations for a CI/CD pipeline.
Or, check out our Github Releases page for release info or to install a specific version.
skaffold runend-to-end, or use individual Skaffold phases to build up your CI/CD pipeline.
skaffold renderoutputs hydrated Kubernetes manifests that can be used in GitOps workflows.
