It integrates well with popular container build tools like Docker and Kubernetes deployment tools like Helm. Skaffold provides a declarative configuration file that allows developers to define the build steps, deployment targets, and dependencies of their application. It supports efficient image building using techniques like caching and incremental builds, ensuring fast and reliable deployments. Skaffold also integrates with Kubernetes tooling like kubectl, allowing developers to quickly and easily interact with their application in the cluster. Overall, Skaffold simplifies the developer experience by automating the deployment process and providing a streamlined workflow for Kubernetes application development.
