  • You've just inherited a legacy C++ codebase, now what?
    2 projects | | 29 Feb 2024
    A nice middle ground is using a tool like Google's Skaffold, which provides "Bazel-like" capabilities for composing Docker images and tagging them based on a number of strategies, including file manifests. In my case, I also use build args to explicitly set versions of external dependencies.

    While I am in a Typescript environment with this setup at the moment, my personal experience that Skaffold with Docker has a lighter implementation and maintenance overhead than Bazel. (You also get the added benefit of easy deployment and automatic rebuilds.)

    I quite liked using Bazel in a small Golang monorepo, but I ran into pain when trying to do things like include third-party pre-compiled binaries in the Docker builds, because of the unusual build rules convention. The advantage of Skaffold is it provides a thin build/tag/deploy/verify layer over Docker and other container types. Might be worth a look!

    Kudos to the Google team building it!

  • Simplifying preview environments for everyone

    To get a similar experience of preevy up, first we’ll need to split the build and deploy using process or alternatively employ tools that orchestrate build-tag-push-update-sync flow like Skaffold/Tilt.
  • Set up docker and kubernetes in ubuntu 22.04
    3 projects | | 19 Mar 2023
    We will be using docker and microk8s from Canonical. For running our software during development, we will be using skaffold which is a great tool developed by Google.
  • How do you develop cloud-native applications locally on Kubernetes?
    2 projects | /r/kubernetes | 2 Mar 2023
    I have used both Skaffold and Devspace. I prefer the latter.

    K3d and Skaffold for local development
  • Does anyone else feel like this?
    3 projects | /r/kubernetes | 19 Jan 2023 - build in k8s - no more asking for the database password. All the plumbing to the backend is just done so it's easier for them to test and demo any branch
  • Which environments do you use/support?
    2 projects | /r/devops | 31 Dec 2022
    To access you service your have several options (it depends on teams the preferences) you can use scaffold or for simple case kfwd Last for everything that is normally expose on internet you would have an Ingress and use external-dns as you would in prod.
  • Approaches in Cloud Development Ergonomics
    7 projects | | 15 Nov 2022
    This approach works great when it’s feasible, which is usually at a very early stage in the life of the application where it’s still small and tenable. There’s some tooling that lets you extend this honeymoon phase by letting you do it more easily, like docker-compose, Skaffold, or Tilt. However, at a certain point, even if you’ve written whatever scriptage is needed to actually configure and run the latest stable version of all of your components together, you’re going to hit some sort of ceiling: if you’ve got a large database, or some CPU-heavy computations, or you’re relying on some managed service that can’t be containerized, this approach soon becomes untenable.
  • Connecting a local container with a Kubernetes cluster
    5 projects | /r/kubernetes | 20 Oct 2022
    Another dev optimization is the conditional rebuilding of a container. For example tools like devspace and skaffold support syncing filles which have changes, but which don't require recompiling.
