Pipelines as Code (Not Scripts)
Declare Pipelines with a simple, easy-to-read file in YAML that you commit to your Git repository.
Each pipeline step is executed inside an isolated Docker container that is auto-downloaded at runtime.
Choose from hundreds of existing extensions, or create your own.
Harness CI (formerly Drone) uses containers to standardize and drop pre-configured steps into your pipeline.
10X More Efficient To Scale
Harness CI (formerly Drone) is written in GO, and requires less than 100MB of memory (Jenkins needs 2GB, Gitlab needs 8GB).
This makes Harness CI super easy to scale across thousands of users without needing to manage your own CI cloud or farm (moo!)
Isolated Builds & Tests
Every build runs in an isolated container so you don’t need to worry about conflicting builds on shared servers across teams.
Full control, and full steam ahead Captain!
