About The Project

Draft makes it easier for developers to get started building apps that run on Kubernetes by taking a non-containerized application and generating the Dockerfiles, Kubernetes manifests, Helm charts, Kustomize configuration, and other artifacts associated with a containerized application. Draft can also generate a GitHub Action workflow file to quickly build and deploy applications onto any Kubernetes cluster.

  • draft create adds the minimum required files for your deployment to the project directory.
  • draft setup-gh automates the Github OIDC setup process for your project.
  • draft generate-workflow generates a Github workflow for automatic build and deploy to AKS.
  • draft update automatically updates your application to be internet accessible.

Draft requires Go version 1.18.x.

  • Go
    go version


  1. Clone the repo
