    Despite other alternatives like Circle CI, Travis CI, GitLab CI or even self-hosted options using open-source projects like Tekton or Argo Workflow, the reason for choosing GitHub Actions was straightforward: GitHub Actions, in conjunction with the GitHub ecosystem, offers a user-friendly experience and access to a rich software marketplace. - Source: / 10 months ago
  • What are some good self-hosted CI/CD tools where pipeline steps run in docker containers?
    Drone, or Tekton, Argo Workflows if you’re on k8s. Source: about 1 year ago
  • K8s powered Git push deployments
    I've recently found this quote by Kelsey Hightower: "I'm convinced the majority of people managing infrastructure just want a PaaS. The only requirement: it has to be built by them." Source: In the last few weeks, I've experimented a bit with Flux (, Tekton ( and Cloud Native Buildpacks ( on... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Is the left guy sad because he knows everything?
    Where full-stack becomes hairy is when responsibilities that other teams should own start spilling into your domain. I've used a "Cloud-native CI/CD" system called Tekton. It's basically "define your own CI/CD system in Kubernetes, good luck". Look how much shit you need to create to get something as simple as a webhook to trigger a pipeline. Oh, and you can't define pipelines in code; you have to apply them to... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Designing a company’s CI/CD system, please recommend resources
    If you already have k8s in your environment and want to run CI jobs with it, check out Tekton. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Does anyone else feel like this? - native k8s builds defined in yaml so they can easily modify pipelines, tasks, etc. And because it runs in the cluster, it's easy to add sidecars to make it look just like the live environment for integration tests. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Kubernetes Tips | Using scripts inside configmaps
    I use Tekton as an ETL orchestrator. In Tekton, Tasks are basically souped up ConfigMaps which may contain multiple composable Steps to be run serially. A Step can define its own container, env vars, command, etc. To execute like any other ci/cd system. I typically write my scripts inline for each step of aTask. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is there a Helm chart to deploy Tekton pipelines?
    I'm using Tekton ( to run CI/CD pipelines on top of Kubernetes, I'd like to deploy multiple pipelines for each environment eg. DEV/TEST/PREPROD/PROD, has anyone seen a helm chart to do this? Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is there a way to pass data between containers ?
    Tekton You can pass the output data between the pods in the pipeline using Workspaces. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • How to create cloud-native CI/CD Pipelines with Tekton
    Through this guide, you’ve learned how to work with Tekton to create cloud-native CI/CD Pipelines. You’ve also been able to build your own Pipeline to clone a repository, build an image, and push that image to the Docker Hub, all by using Tasks from the Tekton Hub. There are plenty more reusable Tasks and Pipelines there, but I also encourage you to learn about Tekton Triggers (automatically running a Pipeline),... - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Introduction to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
    Part of Red Hat OCP is OpenShift Pipelines, a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) solution based on Kubernetes resources. It uses Tekton building blocks to automate builds and deployments, which is running in isolated containers. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Why migrate to GitHub from Jenkins?
    If you need a metric boatload of flexibility and have a Kubernetes cluster, argo workflows and tekton can do jobs for you as needed. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Can Helm chart apply things in stages?
    Declare your multi-stage deployment / process through CRDs + a controller (e.g. ArgoCD with Sync waves or Tekton pipelines). Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Third personal project on K8s and I love it
    Hey all just wanted to share my love for Kubernetes. I've using it since 2019 as a solo developer and have never looked back. I have three startups (or apps) running on the same GKE cluster, just different namespaces. The most recent one being Truegit (blogging platform powered by Github Repository). Storage lives outside the cluster, but Ingress is shared. I'm using Istio as well for ingress and for traffic... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: What Are You Working On?
    Kubirds[0], a Cloud Native Supervision Engine. In the Cloud, monitoring and supervision is all about metric collection and analysis. The good old days of alerting (with tools like Nagios, Icinga, Zabbix, ...) seems to have been forgotten. IMHO, numbers (metrics) are good for machines, not humans. Alerts provide a very simple way of detecting what's wrong. This is why CI/CD tools have a "Green/Red" status for their... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • How to reuse steps in Tekton tasks
    Creating Tekton tasks is real fun! Its similiarities to pod containers, and how it works makes developing and testing super easy. Still, sometimes it is necessary to reuse a steps in multiple tasks, like when using reviewdog. - Source: / about 2 years ago
