Should We Template or Patch Kubernetes Manifests? (Helm vs Kustomize)


Kustomize and Helm serve the same primary function. Both allow us to define applications in a more flexible way than using only Kubernetes manifests. However, the way Helm solves the problem is quite different from the approach adopted with Kustomize. Which one is better? Which one should you choose?

The best way to answer those questions is through a hands-on comparison!
