Simple, yet powerful templates with support for anything from variable interpolation to complex template logic.
Clean, per-cluster configuration files in either YAML or JSON to define what should be deployed and how.
Easy organisation of Kubernetes resources into reusable resource sets. Need to deploy something twice, with different configurations? No problem.
Integration with kubectl including support for dry-run template validation against a Kubernetes server and automatic context switching.
Support for pass, the standard UNIX password manager.
... and more on the horizon!
