Tekton is an open-source project that provides a set of Kubernetes-native building blocks for building, testing, and deploying cloud-native applications and microservices. It focuses on automating various aspects of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), including Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) pipelines.
Tekton enables the creation of flexible, container-centric CI/CD pipelines through its core components: Tasks, which represent individual steps; Pipelines, which orchestrate the sequence of Tasks; and Triggers, which facilitate event-driven automation. Tekton simplifies the building, testing, and deployment of cloud-native applications and microservices in Kubernetes environments, promoting best practices and enhancing the efficiency of software development and delivery processes.
Tracetest enables the creation of trace-based tests which utilize the distributed traces produced by your observability solution to enable adhoc, integration, load, and end to end tests. These tests can be run by Tekton in the CI/CD pipelines to ensure the release is correct before automating the deployment or progressing to the next step.
