Earthly is a syntax for defining your build. It works with your existing build system. Get repeatable and understandable builds today.
COPY main.go .
RUN go build main.go
SAVE ARTIFACT main AS LOCAL main
Where Does Earthly Fit?
- Build guru required
- No build expert required
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
RUN apk --update --no-cache add git
COPY main.go .
RUN go build -o build/go-example main.go
SAVE ARTIFACT build/go-example AS LOCAL build/go-example
RUN go get golang.org/x/lint/golint
COPY main.go .
RUN golint -set_exit_status ./...
A simple GO example

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.

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 love Earthly?
Cache build steps automatically
Caching that just works
Earthly uses the same caching technology as docker builds.
If a step of your build would produce the same output as a previously cached run, it uses the cache.
Earthly cache is persisted in a docker volume called earthly-cache on your system.
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.
COPY api.proto /defs
RUN --entrypoint -- -f api.proto -l go
SAVE ARTIFACT ./gen/pb-go /pb AS LOCAL pb
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 that just works
Whenever possible, Earthly automatically executes targets in parallel.
- Build a directed acyclic graph
- Execute independent steps in parallel
- Cache results for future use
Modern import system
Earthly can be used to reference and build targets from other directories or even other repositories.
Try it yourself! No need to clone:
$> earth github.com/earthly/earthly/examples/go:main+docker
$> docker run --rm go-example:latest
