You may have heard of ArgoCD and GitHub Actions, but have you heard of Tekton? With the rapid emergence of CI/CD tools for cloud-native applications, how do you decide which tool is right for you? Tekton is a powerful yet flexible cloud-native open-source framework for creating CI/CD systems. It’s highly optimized for building, testing and deploying cloud-native applications by abstracting away implementation details. It’s Kubernetes-native thus inherently integrates into key Kubernetes facilities around scheduling, typing, decoupling, extensibility, security, etc. Oftentimes, users migrating to Tekton bring their existing pipelines and try to directly translate them to Tekton pipelines. The challenge here is that the core building blocks of each platform differ so it might be impossible or complicated to directly translate. In this talk, we will show that “one size fits all” is not scalable. Instead, we can leverage multiple CI/CD tools that provide different capabilities and interoperate to solve complex CI/CD use cases. We will discuss how core components compare between Tekton and other common CI/CD tools. Moreover, we will demonstrate how Tekton (Robocat) integrates and interoperates with ArgoCD (Octopus) and GitHub Actions (Octocat).
