Earthly is a syntax for defining your build. It works with your existing build system. Get repeatable and understandable builds today.
FROM golang:1.13-alpine3.11 build: COPY main.go . RUN go build main.go SAVE ARTIFACT main AS LOCAL main
- Clunky and Brittle
- Build guru required
- Easy to Understand
With Earthly, all builds are , , and .
Understandable and Repeatable Build Scripts with Earthly
❤️ Makefile + Dockerfile = Earthfile
It's like Makefile and Dockerfile had a baby. Earthly takes some of the best ideas from Makefiles and Dockerfiles and combines them into one specification.
- Repeatable builds
- A familiar syntax
- Caching for more speed
FROM golang:1.13-alpine3.11 RUN apk --update --no-cache add git WORKDIR /go-example all: BUILD +build BUILD +lint build: COPY main.go . RUN go build -o build/go-example main.go SAVE ARTIFACT build/go-example AS LOCAL build/go-example lint: RUN go get golang.org/x/lint/golint COPY main.go . RUN golint -set_exit_status ./...
A simple GO example
Invoke a build using
Reproduce CI failures
Earthly builds are self-contained, isolated and repeatable.
Regardless of whether Earthly runs in your CI or on your laptop, the build will run the same way.
This allows for faster iteration on the build scripts and easier debugging.
git commit -m "try again" .
Creator of Envoy Proxy
Earthly is a pragmatic and incremental solution to a thorny problem that all organizations face. I'm extremely excited about Earthly bringing this functionality to existing container based build systems without requiring an extremely expensive retooling effort on top of something like Bazel.
Founder of D2iQ
Large organizations like Google or Twitter have solved these problems internally in a way that is idiosyncratic to their engineering processes. Earthly is the first solution to bring the power of repeatable builds at scale to market in a packaging that can fit all organizations.
Why do developers ❤️ Earthly?
Cache build steps automatically
Caching that just works
Earthly uses the same caching technology as the Docker builder.
If a step of your build would produce the same output as a previously cached run, it uses the cache.
Earthly cache can also be shared via the cloud.
Self-contained builds that work everywhere
No need to ask your team to install protoc, a specific version of Python, Java 1.6 or the .NET Core ecosystem. You only install once, in your Earthfile, and it works for everyone. Or even better, you can just make use of the rich Docker Hub ecosystem.
FROM golang:1.13-alpine3.11 WORKDIR /proto-example proto: FROM namely/protoc-all:1.29_4 COPY api.proto /defs RUN --entrypoint -- -f api.proto -l go SAVE ARTIFACT ./gen/pb-go /pb AS LOCAL pb build: COPY go.mod go.sum . RUN go mod download COPY +proto/pb pb COPY main.go ./ RUN go build -o build/proto-example main.go SAVE ARTIFACT build/proto-example
A simple proto example
Parallelization with no strings attached
Whenever possible, Earthly automatically executes targets in parallel.
- Build a directed acyclic graph
- Isolate execution of each step
- Run independent steps in parallel
- Cache results for future use
Modern import system
Copy artifacts across repositories in a single line.
Earthly is cache-aware, based on the Git commit sha of the referenced repository.
Combined with shared caching, you can create vast and efficient build hierarchies that only execute steps impacted by your changes.
FROM node:13.10.1-alpine3.11 WORKDIR /example-multirepo docker: RUN npm install -g http-server COPY github.com/earthly/earthly-example-multirepo-static:main+html/* ./ COPY github.com/earthly/earthly-example-multirepo-js:main+build/* ./ EXPOSE 8080 ENTRYPOINT ["http-server", "."] SAVE IMAGE --push earthly/examples:multirepo
