Argo CD is a declarative, GitOps continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes. It follows the GitOps pattern of using git repositories as the source of truth for defining the desired application state. With ArgoCD, application deployments can be automated and updates to application can be made at the simple git commit events without the need of any complicated Continuous Integration and/or Deployment Pipelines.
This is our fifth post in the series of blog post on deploying and managing application with Kubernetes and Argo CD. You can find the series index here.

Argo CD is a declarative, GitOps continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes based application manifests. You can define Kubernetes manifests in plain text yaml files, or use package managers like Helm, or use configuration management tools like Kustomize, JSonnet, etc. in a declarative way.

Using Argo CD to deploy Kubernetes manifests, you can automate application lifecycle management and enable continuous deployment and delivery in very simple steps. You also do not need to define any CI/CD pipelines for it.
