Welcome to Woodpecker
Woodpecker is a simple CI engine with great extensibility. It runs your pipelines inside Docker containers, so if you are already using them in your daily workflow, you'll love Woodpecker for sure.
- Place your pipeline in a file named
.woodpecker.ymlin your repository
- Pipeline steps can be named as you like
- Run any command in the commands section
- echo "This is the build step"
- echo "Testing.."
Build steps are containers
- Define any Docker image as context
- either use your own and install the needed tools in custom Docker images, or
- search Docker Hub for images that are already tailored for your needs)
- List the commands that should be executed in your container, in order to build or test your application
- image: debian
+ image: mycompany/image-with-awscli
- aws help
File changes are incremental
- Woodpecker clones the source code in the beginning pipeline
- Changes to files are persisted through steps as the same volume is mounted to all steps
- touch myfile
- cat myfile
Plugins are straightforward
- If you copy the same shell script from project to project
- Pack it into a plugin instead
- And make the yaml declarative
- Plugins are Docker images with your script as an entrypoint
COPY deploy /usr/local/deploy
kubectl apply -f $PLUGIN_TEMPLATE
See plugin docs.
