Grafana Tanka

The clean, concise and super flexible alternative to YAML for your Kubernetes cluster

  • 💥 Clean: The Jsonnet language expresses your apps more obviously than YAML ever did
  • 📚 Reusable: Build libraries, import them anytime and even share them on GitHub!
  • 📌 Concise: Using the Kubernetes library and abstraction, you will never see boilerplate again!
  • 🎯 Confidence: Stop guessing and use tk diff to see what exactly will happen
  • 🔭 Helm: Vendor in, modify, and export Helm charts reproducibly
  • 🚀 Production ready: Tanka deploys Grafana Cloud and many more production setups

Let's kill some YAML together  ▶
