The Tekton Pipelines project provides k8s-style resources for declaring CI/CD-style pipelines.
Tekton Pipelines are Cloud Native:
- Run on Kubernetes
- Have Kubernetes clusters as a first class type
- Use containers as their building blocks
Tekton Pipelines are Decoupled:
- One Pipeline can be used to deploy to any k8s cluster
- The Tasks which make up a Pipeline can easily be run in isolation
- Resources such as git repos can easily be swapped between runs
Tekton Pipelines are Typed:
- The concept of typed resources means that for a resource such as an
Image, implementations can easily be swapped out (e.g. building with kaniko v.s. buildkit)
