GitOps Engine

Various GitOps operators address different use-cases and provide different user experiences but all have similar set of core features. The team behind Argo CD has implemented a reusable library that implements core GitOps features:

  • Kubernetes resource cache ✅
  • Resources reconciliation ✅
  • Sync Planning ✅
  • Access to Git repositories
  • Manifest Generation

Proposals, specifications and ideas

Do you want to propose one more feature and want to enhance the existing one? Proposals and ideas are in markdown docs in the specs/ directory. To create a new proposal, simply copy the spec template, name the file corresponding to the title of your proposal, and place it in the specs/ directory.

A good starting point to understand the structure is the GitOps Engine Design spec.

We tried to answer frequently asked question in a separate FAQ document.

The GitOps Engine follows the CNCF Code of Conduct.
