Brigade: Event-based Scripting for Kubernetes

Build Status CII Best Practices FOSSA Status

Script simple and complex workflows using JavaScript. Chain together containers, running them in parallel or serially. Fire scripts based on times, GitHub events, Docker pushes, or any other trigger. Brigade is the tool for creating pipelines for Kubernetes.

  • JavaScript scripting
  • Project-based management
  • Configurable event hooks
  • Easy construction of pipelines
  • Check out the docs to get started.


Brigade 2.0 is currently under active development in the v2 branch of this repository.

We're excited to announce the first alpha release, v2.0.0-alpha.1. See the README on the v2 branch to learn how to get started with Brigade 2.0.

The Brigade Technology Stack

  • Brigade ❤️ JavaScript: Writing Brigade pipelines is as easy as writing a few lines of JavaScript.
  • Brigade ❤️ Kubernetes: Brigade is Kubernetes-native. Your builds are translated into pods, secrets, and services
  • Brigade ❤️ Docker: No need for special plugins or elaborate extensions. Brigade uses off-the-shelf Docker images to run your jobs. And Brigade also supports DockerHub webhooks.
  • Brigade ❤️ GitHub: Brigade comes with built-in support for GitHub, DockerHub, and other popular web services. And it can be easily extended to support your own services.

The design introduction introduces Brigade concepts and architecture.
