The base folder is used for purely layering.
Here’s an example structure, so we can understand how layering works with the base folder.
.kubes/resources/ ├── base │ ├── all.rb │ └── deployment.rb └── web ├── deployment.rb └── service.rb
Kubes process the files in the
base folder first, then it process your role-based resources like web. So:
kubes deploy web deployment
More details on layering can be found in the Layering Docs.
Remember files in the base are used just for layering.
