The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the Docker technology as he records his journey to continuously deploying applications with Jenkins into a Kubernetes cluster. The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit: Continuously Deploying Applications with Jenkins to a Kubernetes Cluster is the latest book in Viktor Farcic’s series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book guides readers through the process of building, testing, and deploying applications through fully automated pipelines. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide-range of emerging topics, including an exploration of continuous delivery and deployment in Kubernetes using Jenkins. It also shows readers how to perform continuous integration inside these clusters, and discusses the distribution of Kubernetes applications, as well as installing and setting up Jenkins. Work with Viktor and dive into the creation of self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker.

Reusing pipeline snippets through global pipeline libraries

The pipeline we designed works as we expect. However, we'll have a problem on our hands if other teams start copying and pasting the same script for their pipelines. We'd end up with a lot of duplicated code that will be hard to maintain.

Most likely it will get worse than the simple practice of duplicating code since not all pipelines will be the same. There's a big chance each is going to be different, so copy and paste practice will only be the first action. People will find the pipeline that is closest to what they're trying to accomplish, replicate it, and then change it to suit their needs. Some steps are likely going to be the same for many (if not all) projects, while others will be specific to only one, or just a few pipelines.

The more pipelines we design, the more patterns will emerge. Everyone...
