Best Practices

GitOps gained popularity, resulting in the creation of the Open GitOps Principles. While the principles offer a standard, they don't provide implementation guidance or best practices.

As the creators of Argo CD, long-time GitOps practitioners, and Kubernetes authorities, we came up with a whitepaper that aims to address GitOps best practices by sharing insights and lessons learned from deploying Argo CD at scale in production.

The whitepaper covers such topics as: 
  • Manifest Templating and Patching Techniques
  • Git Workflows
  • Preferred GitOps Repository Directory Structures
  • Integrating CI/CD with GitOps
  • The Rendered Manifests Pattern for Improved Visibility and Security
