Ready to run…Use the Okteto Catalog

Are you ready to run your application? Go to the Okteto Catalog, select your application from the list, and just click "Launch". Okteto takes care of all the tasks, the manifest, and runtime environment automation required to immediately deploy the application for anyone inside and outside the development team. Now that is the best experience for both the experience builder AND their development team. The result is a development experience without friction that enables increased productivity and reduces administrative complexity.

New Experience for Platform Builders

The Catalog is a fast, easy way to pre-configure and publish launch ready Okteto app configurations (based on application and development lifecycle). Whatever makes sense for your project.
