When Skaffold renders your application to Kubernetes, it goes throught the following process:
- the Skaffold renderer renders the final Kubernetes manifests: Skaffold replaces untagged image names in the Kubernetes manifests with the final tagged image names. It also might go through the extra intermediate step of expanding templates (for helm) or calculating overlays (for kustomize).
Skaffold supports the following tools for rendering applications:
Skaffold’s render configuration is set through the
skaffold.yaml. See each renderer’s page for more information
on how to configure them for use in Skaffold. It’s also possible to use
a combination of multiple renderers in a single project.
