Can we render an app that’s part of an applicationset locally? Basically I want to see the desired manifest based on the resources on my lappy386 without any regard to what’s going on anywhere else not on my lappy.

This got asked in the CNCF Slack and someone left this link as an answer.

Pretty wild that there’s no offline way to output the content. Am pulling in a chart, appset, and release and can’t inspect my work.

If there happens to be a path to that somewhere I’m still interested, but it seems like right now I either don’t know how best to work with the app or this is a blind spot.

In my previous flux world we’d use Helm to output manifests, visually inspect them, sometimes apply them to a lab or dev manually while we tweaked things, and then let the pipelines do their magic.

My use case today is simply that I want to be able to toggle a setting and show the output differences. someone did something rather silly and I wanted to showcase why with an example of what outputs are sent through the pipeline without ever checking code or having to develop my own lab.

#10895 ApplicationSet generators diff with CLI


Beeing able to diff the ApplicationSet generators


Today to push a modification on an application I can do an argocd app diff --revision ... in my CI to see the changes I will add.
I would love to have something similar to see the list of application that will be added or removed by the applicationset.


Implement an argocd appset diff --revision ... ?
