Brigade launched

Event-driven scripting tool for Kubernetes released by Microsoft
31 October 2017   444

Microsoft has unveiled its new Open Source development for the needs of DevOps, a Brigade utility designed to run scripts that are executed on a Kubernetes cluster on an event.

The Brigade utility was created by former employees of Deis, a company that Microsoft bought earlier this year. Deis was working on Kubernetes, Helm and Draft. The purpose of Brigade is to "script simple and complex workflows using JavaScript." The solution allows to associate containers by running them sequentially or in parallel and invoking scripts based on time, events in GitHub (also supported by "DockerHub and other popular web services"), push operations in Docker or other triggers. Readme of the project describes it as "a tool for creating pipelines for Kubernetes".

Brigade architecture
Brigade architecture 

Brigade is written in Go and TypeScript / JavaScript, it functions as a service inside Kubernetes. The job (task) in Brigade is a JavaScript script that is interpreted by the product service, which leads to the creation of the necessary resources in Kubernetes. Next, Brigade expects events and performs the corresponding task trigger. It is assumed that the new solution is well suited for the tasks of continuous integration and delivery of applications (CI / CD), tk. simplifies automated testing, assembly of artifacts and releases, management of software deployment.
