    Right. Flux was a handy little tool[1] that sync'd yaml manifests in git repos to live clusters. The concept was fascinating, and the tool was well done--small and efficient. Easy to learn.

    In 2019, they announced they'd be "merging" with argocd[2]. It seems the merge never really took place, and after that they deprecated flux and announced flux2[3].

    The sudden changes of course were a little confusing and perhaps not too well communicated.

  • Automation assistants: GitOps tools in comparison

    The blog post by Weaveworks, which coined the term GitOps in 2017, also names the first GitOps operator: Flux. In the meantime, this has been completely rewritten as Flux v2. In addition to Flux and Flux v2, the associated project "Flux" develops other components. Weaveworks has now handed the project over to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). By now, the project is in the second maturity level: incubator phase.

    Looks really neat. We have a not-super-trivial rails app that I want to move to docker one day, but kinda scared to make the jump. We're already using docker for development, plus even have a home-grown docker-compose setup for ephemeral labs, but it's clunky at best.

    This seems like something that might provide a simple jumping board hopefully... Also bumped into fluxCD[0] recently which also looks interesting.

    > It doesn't make all the other yaml files happen. It doesn't make the yaml files you no longer want happening, stop happening. It doesn't even tell you "these things were created by 'old' yaml files" and should be garbage collected (since it doesn't seem to have a sense of old yaml files).

    This is definitely one piece of Kubernetes that is getting a lot of attention recently. The three tools I've been paying attention to are Argo CD[0], Flux[1], and Config Sync[2].

    All of these allow you to point your repository to a cluster and sync resources from the repo to the cluster, including deletes.

    Otherwise, Kubernetes would be my suggestion. It doesn't have to be that complicated. I can recommend Flux (https://github.com/fluxcd/flux) for managing deployments. It makes everything a lot easier.

    In all cases, the promotion process is very cumbersome and current GitOps tools do not have an easy answer on what is the correct approach.
