In this piece, we will zoom into how you can get started on your GitOps journey with Weave GitOps.
Coined by Weaveworks in 2017, GitOps is an operational paradigm for Kubernetes and cloud-native technologies. DevOps best practices - such as version control, CI/CD tooling, collaboration, and compliance - are also used in GitOps and applied to infrastructure automation.
GitOps revolves around four core principles as per the OpenGitOps standards:
Weave GitOps is a continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes based on Flux, a powerful GItOps engine, and a CNCF project (in progress to graduation). Weave GitOps provides insights into your application deployment and simplifies the scaling and the adoption of GitOps across teams.
Weave GitOps is an open-source project sponsored by Weaveworks, the GitOps company and Flux’s original creators. Weave GitOps is available in two different tiers:
Weave GitOps automates the process which Weaveworks describes as “ a reconciliation loop between Git and Kubernetes.” It constantly reconciles the desired state stored in Git with the actual state running in Kubernetes. When the developer merges a change into the main branch, those changes are immediately applied to Kubernetes.
We assume that you’re now familiar with the GitOps concepts and the cloud-native ecosystem (Kubernetes, containers, and all the works). Before you get started, you will need to have all of the below tools set up.
Two commands are all you need to enable GitOps in your cluster and run your applications on it.
1- Enable GitOps on your cluster.
2- Add your application.
And that’s it! Now the workloads are up and running in your cluster.
