Codefresh has dramatically improved its open source marketplace with features that underscore the company’s commitment to removing barriers to faster code deployment, saving developers frustration, time, and money.
First deployed in December 2018, the Codefresh Marketplace makes it easier for code developers to find commands without having to learn a proprietary API – every step, browsable in the pipeline builder, is a simple Docker image.
The Marketplace contains a more robust set of pipeline steps provided both by Codefresh and partners, such as Blue-Green and Canary deployment steps for Kubernetes, Aqua security scanning, and Helm package and deployment. All plugins are open source and users can contribute to the collection by creating a new plugin.
Additional new functionality includes the ability to create private steps for a specific team, a new section for items maintained by Codefresh, and automatic scanning and security checking of Marketplace additions.
“Our steps Marketplace provides building blocks for your pipelines. It is very easy to search for a keyword and see if there is a step for that method,” said Dan Garfield, Chief Technology Evangelist for Codefresh.
“We look forward to communities adding more plugins as the adoption of Docker within companies skyrockets and the benefits of Docker-based tooling become more clear.”
