Build and deploy Linux-based workloads using Skaffold

Skaffold handles the workflow for building, pushing and deploying your application. Linux, Tomcat, WebSphere, JBoss, Apache, and WordPress support Skaffold artifact creation by default.

If you use Cloud Shell, Skaffold is already installed. If you need to install Skaffold, see Installing Skaffold.

Use Skaffold with Linux-based workloads

The skaffold.yaml file is at the root folder of the generated artifacts. To learn how to edit the skaffold.yaml file, see the Skaffold file reference.

To run Skaffold locally, from root folder of the generated artifacts, run the following command:

skaffold run -d

Replace PROJECT_ID with your project ID.

To run Skaffold in the cloud, use the following command:

skaffold run -d -p cloudbuild
