kubernetes-deploy is a command line tool that helps you ship changes to a Kubernetes namespace and understand the result. At Shopify, we use it within our much-beloved, open-source Shipit deployment app.
kubernetes-deploy is a tool in the Container Tools category of a tech stack.
kubernetes-deploy is an open source tool with 737 Github Stars and 58 Github Forks. Here’s a link to kubernetes-deploy's open source repository on Github
Here’s a list of reasons why companies and developers use kubernetes-deploy.
Here are some stack decisions and reviews by companies and developers who chose kubernetes-deploy in their tech stack.
Shipit, our deployment tool, is at the heart of Continuous Delivery at Shopify. Shipit is an orchestrator that runs and tracks progress of any deploy script that you provide for a project. It supports deploying to Rubygems, Pip, Heroku and Capistrano out of the box. For us, it's mostly kubernetes-deploy or Capistrano for legacy projects.
We use a slightly tweaked GitHub flow, with feature development going in branches and the master branch being the source of truth for the state of things in production. When your PR is ready, you add it to the Merge Queue in ShipIt. The idea behind the Merge Queue is to control the rate of code that is being merged to master branch. In the busy hours, we have many developers who want to merge the PRs, but at the same time we don't want to introduce too many changes to the system at the same time. Merge Queue limits deploys to 5-10 commits at a time, which makes it easier to identify issues and roll back in case we notice any unexpected behaviour after the deploy.
We use a browser extension to make Merge Queue play nicely with the Merge button on GitHub:
Both Shipit and kubernetes-deploy are open source, and we've heard quite a few success stories from companies who have adopted our flow.
