A GitOps continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes

Nothing but the Truth


Argo CD is a powerful continuous delivery tool leveraging the GitOps paradigm. Although the aim is to automate as much as possible, you retain enormous flexibility on how the synchronization process is performed.

Don't let the simplified examples in this article fool you, though: Argo CD is a complex tool that requires time and effort to learn. For example, proper TLS configuration can easily take a couple of hours. Fortunately, the project is well documented and, once installed and properly configured, the operation itself is fairly smooth. If you are already using Kubernetes and are considering a deployment tool, you should take a look at Argo CD to see if it fits your needs.
