Minimal container image for running skaffold apps

Download this Image

The image is available on

docker pull

Compatibility Notes

The image specifies a default non-root skaffold user (UID 65532), and a working directory at /app, owned by that skaffold user, and accessible to all users.

This image includes skaffold, helm, kubectl, kpt, kustomize, and the google-cloud-sdk.


This image should be a drop-in replacement for the upstream skaffold-slim image. See the full documentation for usage.
