This example shows Zarf's ability to inject data into a container running in a pod. This allows for data that is not included in the container image to be injected at deploy time.
Data injections are declared using the
dataInjections key within a component, and once the specified container is started, Zarf will copy the files and folders from the specified source into the specified container and path.

compress: true # whether to compress the injection stream (requires gzip)
The source should be defined relative to the component's package.
This feature depends on the
tar (and for
gzip) executables and their implementation across operating systems. Between macOS and Linux there is general agreement on how these utilities should function, however on Windows you may see issues enabling compression.
To resolve this you can either disable compression or use the GNU core-utils version of
