This package was approved by moderator gep13 on 8/6/2019.

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 editted text.

This tool is sponsored by sig-cli (KEP), and inspired by DAM.

To install Kustomize (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install kustomize

To upgrade Kustomize (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade kustomize

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
