Crossplane is a framework for building cloud native control planes without needing to write code. It has a highly extensible backend that enables you to build a control plane that can orchestrate applications and infrastructure no matter where they run, and a highly configurable frontend that puts you in control of the schema of the declarative API it offers.

Crossplane is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation project.

The public roadmap for Crossplane is published as a GitHub project board. Issues added to the roadmap have been triaged and identified as valuable to the community, and therefore a priority for the project that we expect to invest in.

Milestones assigned to any issues in the roadmap are intended to give a sense of overall priority and the expected order of delivery. They should be considered approximate estimations and are not a strict commitment to a specific delivery timeline.
