How to update a Deployment imageΒΆ

To update the Docker image for an existing deployment:

from pykube import Deployment, HTTPClient, KubeConfig

new_docker_image = "hjacobs/kube-web-view"

api = HTTPClient(KubeConfig.from_file())
deploy = Deployment.objects(api).get(name="mydeploy")
deploy.obj["spec"]["template"]["spec"]["containers"][0]["image"] = new_docker_image

Note that the call to deploy.update() might fail if the resource was modified between loading and updating. In this case you need to retry.
