Okteto Build Service

The Okteto Build service allows you to build your container images remotely. Another reason to remove Docker and Kubernetes from your laptop and develop directly in Okteto.

Build images

You'll need the okteto CLI in order to access the Okteto Build Service.

Once the Okteto CLI is installed, run okteto context and select your Okteto instance to download the credentials and certificates required to access the Okteto Build service.

After that, run the okteto build command to build and push your images.

okteto build -t .

You can build and push images to any available docker registry. If you're not using the Okteto Registry, the okteto build command will use your available docker registry credentials.

Refer to this document for more information on the okteto build command.
