rok8s-scripts is a framework for building GitOps workflows with Docker and Kubernetes. By adding rok8s-scripts to your CI/CD pipeline, you can build, push, and deploy your applications using the set of best practices we've built at Fairwinds.

In addition to building Docker images and deploying them to Kubernetes, rok8s-scripts is a great way to handle secure secrets management, environment specific configuration, Docker build caching, and much more.

To help you get started quickly, we've built a minimal example that shows how to use rok8s-scripts to build Docker images and deploy to Kubernetes using Circle CI. This example will serve as a helpful introduction regardless of your CI platform.
