Commands using kubectl

These commands will apply/delete/create the yaml configuration yaml files for your kubernetes cluster.

k8s kubectl apply [package]

The command is recursive and it will execute the command on all the yaml files found in the package, except for an file called build.yml or build.yaml.

Commands using docker

k8s build [package] OR
k8s build -tag [tag] [package]

The build package will build your Dockerfiles based on specifications from build.yml or build.yaml.

Minimum required format build.yml file:

    - tag: "mycoolapp:latest"
      path: "infrastructure/mycoolapp"
    - tag: "mycoolappdb:3fr5310"
      path: "infrastructure/mycoolapp/db"
      dockerfile: "DB_Dockerfile"


  • tag: the tag used to build your docker image
  • path: the path to docker context. If is not prefixed with "/", it will be relative to your projects' folder from config file.
  • dockerfile: name of the dockerfile, if multiple names - optional. Default: Dockerfile

Tag specifications:

A tag can be set either in YAML file mycoolapp:latest where latest is the tag or using the -- tag flag.

The tag will apply to all docker images created.
