Welcome to the Gimlet universe!
Gimlet is a set of tools that will get you a developer platform on top of Kubernetes.
It is built on the de-facto tools of the ecosystem - Helm and Flux - and provides you with a golden-path, a set of best-practices, so you can focus on your task at hand. Without having to navigate the vast options the cloud native ecosystem offers you.
Where to start
- Concepts discuss key topics and concepts at a fairly high level and provide useful background information and explanation when you are starting out.
- Tutorials take you through a series of steps to deploy your application on Kubernetes. Start here if you’re new to Gimlet or the Kubernetes ecosystem
If you are a developer, start with Deploy your app to Kubernetes without the boilerplate. If you are a cluster admin, start with Make Kubernetes an application platform with Gimlet Stack
Guides are recipes. They guide you through the steps involved in addressing key problems and use-cases. They are more advanced than tutorials and assume some knowledge of how Gimlet works.
Reference guides contain technical reference for APIs and other aspects of Gimlet's machinery. They describe how it works and how to use it but assume that you have a basic understanding of key concepts.
