Packages and Binaries:


kustomize lets you customize raw, template-free YAML files for multiple purposes, leaving the original YAML untouched and usable as is.

kustomize targets kubernetes; it understands and can patch kubernetes style API objects. It’s like make in that what it does is declared in a file, and it’s like sed (, in that it emits edited text.
