Draft makes it easier for developers to get started building apps that run on Kubernetes by taking a non-containerized application and generating the Dockerfiles, Kubernetes manifests, Helm charts, Kustomize configuration, and other artifacts associated with a containerized application.
To get started with Draft, right click your directory in your Visual Studio Code window. The window “Run AKS DevX Tool” holds the menu for Draft. Here, you can see all the Draft commands available to you. Another viable option is to press ctrl + shift + p and open up the command palette and type "AKS Developer".
To properly use Draft to containerize your application, create manifest files, and deploy your application, you must use the commands in the following order:
Draft a Dockerfile adds the minimum required Dockerfile to the project directory.
Draft a Kubernetes Deployment and Service adds the appropriate deployment and service files to your application. Allowing you to deploy to an AKS cluster.
Build an image on Azure Container Registry build an image on an ACR to later use in your deployment files.
Prerequisites shows you all the steps that you need to get up and running on AKS. By the end of this checklist you will have an application up and running on AKS!
Draft a GitHub Action Deployment Workflow for use with AKS, leveraging GitHub OIDC
