In episode 10 we discuss the
kustomize automation tools. We start the
conversation thinking that one is an evolution of the other, but we don’t end up
that way. We were all a little surprised at where we ended up for Episode 10. We
hope you are, too.
Our biggest connection is that
kustomize don’t solve exactly the same
problem. Most of the reading you do out on the internet compares them in a
direct way. We started there. But we didn’t end up there.
Kustomize is designed to deploy applications and artifacts when
everyone is collaborating via version control. But that’s not always the case.
And that’s where
helm comes into play.
When you need to distribute you application in a more packaged manager to end
users or to co-workers who don’t have access to your version control,
the best tool that we’ve discovered so far.
