How to validate your Jenkinsfile locally before committing

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. A dynamic language for the Java platform

    Scripted Syntax: The traditional way to write pipelines. This option strictly uses Apache Groovy Lang syntax to declare every step of the pipeline.
  2. Automate your workflow from idea to production

    Continuous integration and deployment is a fun topic. I've learned a lot recently working on some projects at my actual job. The task can be a little intimidating sometimes, specially if you work with Jenkins. Don't get me wrong! Jenkins is an amazing tool. I just find the learning curve a little bit steeper compared to other solutions I've tried (Github Actions, Gitlab CI/CD Pipelines, Buddy.works, etc).
  3. Build and debug modern web and cloud applications, by Microsoft

    Every time that I'm working on a Jenkinsfile I make mistakes! 😓. The problem is: you need to commit and push those changes every time, adding unnecessary git history with syntax fixes (personally, I really hate writing 5 commits messages like "fix(jenkins): syntax typo"). How you can avoid it? Well, the solution comes to use an extension of VS Code 😄.
  4. The simplest CI/CD tool ever made, acclaimed by top developers worldwide. It uses delivery pipelines to build, test and deploy software. Pipelines are created with over 100 ready-to-use actions, that can be arranged in any way.
