Tilt CLI Reference

tilt down

Delete resources created by ‘tilt up’


Deletes resources specified in the Tiltfile

Specify additional flags and arguments to control which resources are deleted.

Namespaces are not deleted by default. Use –delete-namespaces to change that.

Kubernetes resources with the annotation ‘tilt.dev/down-policy: keep’ are not deleted.

For more complex cases, the Tiltfile has APIs to add additional flags and arguments to the Tilt CLI. These arguments can be scripted to define custom subsets of resources to delete. See https://docs.tilt.dev/tiltfile_config.html for examples.
