Woodpecker – simple yet powerful CI/CD engine

Woodpecker is a simple yet powerful CI/CD engine with great extensibility.

Woodpecker uses docker containers to execute pipeline steps.

This is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Webhooks are used to trigger pipeline executions. When you push code to your repository, open a pull request, or create a tag, your forge will automatically send a webhook to Woodpecker which will in turn trigger the pipeline execution.
  • Integrated support for matrix workflows. Woodpecker executes a separate workflow for each combination in the matrix, allowing you to build and test against multiple configurations.
  • Ability to store named parameters external to the YAML configuration file, in a central secret store. These secrets can be passed to individual steps of the pipeline at runtime.
  • Provides the ability to add container registries in the settings of your repository. Adding a registry allows you to authenticate and pull private images from a container registry when using these images as a step inside your pipeline.
  • Services section in the YAML file used for defining service containers
  • Define Docker volumes in the YAML. You can use this parameter to mount files or folders on the host machine into your containers.
  • Config warnings and errors in the UI.
  • Bitbucket cloud support for multi-workflows.
  • Full support for Kubernetes backend.
  • Plugins – pipeline steps that perform pre-defined tasks and are configured as steps in your pipeline. Plugins can be used to deploy code, publish artifacts, send notification, and more.
