Listening To You: GoLang Survey Results

How are developers using Go and Go modules? We wanted to know, and not just because JFrog Artifactory supports Go registries and helps share versioned Go modules through GoCenter. At JFrog, we’re Go developers too -- both JFrog CLI and Xray are written in Go -- and busy contributors to the growing GoLang community. That’s…

Artifactory as a Caching Mechanism for Package Managers

As a developer in the JFrog Ecosystem team, I rely on many package managers to download tools for my builds. Pre-build tools such as Curl, CLI, wget, Maven, Gradle, npm and others, used to build the final deliverable, are automatically downloaded by the CI server as part of the first step of our builds. Relying…

Accelerate Application Release with Environment as a Service

This blog is co-posted on the Quali blog. Liquid Software flows through a pipe, and that plumbing needs to be properly sealed.

Users have been able to contribute to it by uploading packages to their own Bintray repositories, then submitting them via an “Inclusion Request” process.  Bintray repositories account for a large number of downloads (24 million downloads…

Charting Helm Hub Through Artifactory

A great many Helm charts dot the landscape of the internet, and it can be hard to know about them all or their whereabouts.

Ready, Set, GoCenter! Converting Projects for Go Modules

Ever since the introduction of Go’s new dependency management system in Go 1.11 and later, GoLang developers have embraced the package versioning solution. Those that do can use the GoCenter repository of immutable public Go modules, and gain faster Go builds with a more robust and reliable Go pipeline. But converting existing projects to use…

Kubernetes CI/CD Pipelines at Scale

This blog was originally published by Kamesh Pemmaraju on the Platform9 Blog. Kubernetes orchestrates containers reliably at scale while abstracting the underlying infrastructure. Unlike Virtual Machines, this helps developers separate the workloads from the complexities of the infrastructure. Kubernetes is ideal for CI/CD automation because it offers many built-in capabilities that makes application deployment standardized…
