What is OpenGitOps?

OpenGitOps is a set of open-source standards, best practices, and community-focused education to help organizations adopt a structured, standardized approach to implementing GitOps.

GitOps is the best thing since configuration as code. Git changed how we collaborate, but declarative configuration is the key to dealing with infrastructure at scale, and sets the stage for the next generation of management tools.

- Kelsey Hightower Staff Developer Advocate, Google

I wish GitOps practices were available a decade ago. GitOps increases the quality of everything we do. Right now, I can't imagine working differently anytime in the future.

- Florian Heubeck, Principal Engineer, MediaMarktSaturn Technology

GitOps feels like the right way to manage Kubernetes clusters. Other pre-containerization CI/CD tools are flakey, fragile and take up valuable time. Engineers should focus on solving code problems, and not on the deployment process.

GitOps Principles v1.0.0

  1. 1


    A system managed by GitOps must have its desired state expressed declaratively.

  2. 2

    Versioned and Immutable

    Desired state is stored in a way that enforces immutability, versioning and retains a complete version history.

  3. 3

    Pulled Automatically

    Software agents automatically pull the desired state declarations from the source.

  4. 4

    Continuously Reconciled

    Software agents continuously observe actual system state and attempt to apply the desired state.
