kaniko vs Skaffold: What are the differences?

Developers describe kaniko as "Build container images in Kubernetes". A tool to build container images from a Dockerfile, inside a container or Kubernetes cluster kaniko doesn't depend on a Docker daemon and executes each command within a Dockerfile completely in userspace. This enables building container images in environments that can't easily or securely run a Docker daemon, such as a standard Kubernetes cluster.. On the other hand, Skaffold is detailed as "Easy and Repeatable Kubernetes Development". 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 can also be used in an automated context such as a CI/CD pipeline to leverage the same workflow and tooling when moving applications to production.

kaniko and Skaffold can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

kaniko and Skaffold are both open source tools. Skaffold with 7.16K GitHub stars and 589 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than kaniko with 3.96K GitHub stars and 311 GitHub forks.
