CI/CD Leader Codefresh Invests in Growing Community with Open-Source Marketplace and Public Pipelines
Codefresh's marketplace is like no other. Instead of developers needing to learn a proprietary API to develop CI/CD plugins, Codefresh plugins are based on easy to create Docker images. This highly-scalable marketplace will be demonstrated at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon  along with new tools to run pipelines for open source projects with public build/test results. 

Open Source Plugin Directory

With a growing community and investment into open source, Codefresh's unique architecture provides a new way of doing plugins that avoids the problems of other systems:

●      Plugins are isolated to individual steps, so they cannot conflict across versions

●      Plugin development is easy, just make a Docker image

●      Volumes and caching are handled automatically

The Codefresh community has already contributed dozens of plugins for things like updating DNS, using S3 storage, and deploying functions These community additions complement Codefresh's built in steps, such as Kubernetes Canary deployment, building Docker images, and more.

"Codefresh offers a core advantage in CI/CD because now developers are able to create plugins without specialized knowledge and it takes only a few minutes of work. This model improves isolation, and increases ease of use and portability," said Dan Garfield, Chief Technology Evangelist for Codefresh. "We believe now is the most critical time to have this model because, as companies adopt microservices, the number of pipelines they create will skyrocket."

Public Builds and Comment Triggers

From December 11 - 13, Gold Sponsor and Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Member Codefresh can be found at Booth #G4 at KubeCon, located at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, where they will be showcasing the simplicity of Codefresh tools. In the adjacent Codefresh Lounge, attendees can take a shot at creating the perfect pipeline. On Wednesday, December 12, the company will host a Gameworks Happy Hour from 5 - 7 p.m.  Those interested in attending should RSVP at:

Codefresh helps developers instantly build, test, and deploy to Kubernetes, and gather feedback on apps, resulting in up to 24-times faster development times.  To learn more about the Codefresh marketplace, read the new blog, Codefresh launches plugin marketplace, a collection of Docker images as pipeline steps.
