Earthly makes builds
Fast, consistent builds with an instantly familiar syntax – like Dockerfile and Makefile had a baby.
500,000+ builds run on Earthly every month
With Earthly, all builds are containerized, consistent, and language agnostic.
Clunky and Brittle
Build guru required
Easy to Understand
Nobody likes their CI/CD
Traditional CI/CD has many pain points
Nightmare to Maintain
CI/CD pipelines are a nightmare to maintain.
- Slow dev-test cycle
- No local pipeline execution
- Limited code reuse
- Clunky language (e.g. YAML, Bash, Groovy)
- Difficult to parallelize
More than half of CI/CD run time is spent reexecuting things that haven't changed.
- Reinstalls dependencies every time
- Unnecessary task reexecution
- Ineffective caching
- Sandboxed CI environments sacrifice speed
Slower Means More Profit
The slower the build, the more the vendor profits.
- Profits tied to build minutes
- Slower builds benefit vendors
- Incentive against speed innovation
Poor Monorepo Support
CI/CD platforms falter with monorepo/polyrepo layouts, causing compatibility and efficiency issues.
- Limited monorepo compatibility
- Changes trigger all pipelines every time
- No robust way to trigger a subset of pipelines
- No easy way to import build results across repositories
- Requires complex DIY scripting
Introducing Earthly CI
Fast, consistent CI/CD that is super simple to use
Write builds once, run them anywhere
- All builds run in containers, making them self-contained, isolated, consistent, and portable.
- Builds execute correctly regardless of the platform or specifics of the environment.
- No need to configure language-specific tooling or install extra dependencies.
Ridiculously fast builds!

Based on build speeds reported by our users
- Earthly CI runs builds 2-20x faster compared to traditional CI/CD platforms.
- Automatic parallel execution and optimal cache usage with no configuration required.
- An instantly available build cache eliminates download and upload delays.
- All builds are defined in Earthfiles and use a syntax that is easy to write and understand.
- Engineers can quickly grasp Earthfiles without prior knowledge of Earthly or Earthly CI.
- It's like Dockerfile and Makefile had a baby.

Great for monorepos and polyrepos
- Earthly CI works with both monorepos and polyrepos, providing flexibility in organizing your build logic.
- Builds can be split across multiple subdirectories or even repositories.
- Easily reference targets from other Earthfiles, no matter their location.
Pricing aligned with performance
- Earthly CI's pricing is aligned with performance, eliminating misaligned incentives found in traditional CI/CD platforms.
- Instead of billing by-the-minute, Earthly CI charges per active user and bills compute at cost.
- No financial incentives exist for increased build times, ensuring a focus on optimizing build speeds and customer satisfaction.
Developers and engineering teams love Earthly
Jesús Rodríguez Valencia
Principal Software Engineer @ Roche
By using Earthly, we enabled developers to execute complex CI pipelines on their laptops without having to commit any code!
Head of IT & Security Operations @ Deep Genomics
By providing rapid build times, intelligent caching, and repeatability, Earthly enables a better approach to the coordination of development and deployment.
CTO @ Table Needs
Earthly CI reduced our average build time from 20 minutes to 3 minutes and was quick and straightforward to set up and use.
