On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Skipper 1.0 M1.
Skipper is a lightweight tool that allows you to discover Spring Boot applications and manage their lifecycle on multiple Cloud Platforms. You can use Skipper standalone or integrate it with Continuous Integration pipelines to help implement the practice of Continuous Deployment.
The main features in Skipper 1.0 M1 are:
The getting started section in the reference guide is the best place to start kicking the tires.
This project was born out of providing continuous delivery features in Spring Cloud Data Flow. In Data Flow, data pipelines are created which consist of two or more microservice applications that evolve independent from each other. It was later recognized that instead of addressing these features in Data Flow, a more general purpose project, Spring Cloud Skipper, should be created so that it can also be a useful tool outside the context of Spring Cloud Data Flow.
In the short term, Skipper’s main use-case is to deploy Spring Cloud Stream applications via Data Flow. However, we are looking to support templating of Cloud Foundry manifests and deploying them in a
cf push style.
