OrbitalCI is a self-hostable continuous integration system written in Rust.

All Continuous Integration systems are essentially fancy script executors. OrbitalCI is no different. What makes OrbitalCI different from other continuous integration systems?

  • OrbitalCI is a container-first builder as a strategy for reproducing builds w/o cache implicitly affecting the failure or success.
  • Users interact with OrbitalCI via command line interface. They can build, watch live logs and view history of their repo builds.
  • Build environments and build instructions are laid out in a yaml configuration file that lives in the root of your code repo.
  • Other self-hosted or private infrastructure (such as artifact repositories or Slack organizations) are supported in your builds.

OrbitalCI's roadmap for the year is located here


To get started, just run make.

Requirements on host

  • Rust 1.39+
  • Docker
  • make
  • git

Note: Docker container exec only works on Linux hosts due to softprops/shiplift#155

Getting started with Vagrant

Requirements on host

The following tools need to be installed on your host.

  • Vagrant
  • Virtualbox
    • If you use a different Vagrant provider, you may need to set your VAGRANT_DEFAULT_PROVIDER environment variable.
    • See the Vagrant docs for more detail

From root of the repo: vagrant up

The codebase will share/sync the current directory in the VM under /home/vagrant/orbitalci.

Getting started with Docker

This image is not yet ready for active usage, but it can be used for manual testing of the cli through orb dev [...] commands.

To manually build the container from root of the repo: docker build -t orb .
