Flux has been promoted to Graduated status in the CNCF

To officially graduate from incubating status, Flux demonstrated advanced security, rapidly growing adoption, an open governance process, and impressive design.

🤝
Flux provides GitOps for both apps and infrastructure
Flux and Flagger deploy apps with canaries, feature flags, and A/B rollouts. Flux can also manage any Kubernetes resource. Infrastructure and workload dependency management is built in.
🤖
Just push to Git and Flux does the rest
Flux enables application deployment (CD) and (with the help of Flagger) progressive delivery (PD) through automatic reconciliation. Flux can even push back to Git for you with automated container image updates to Git (image scanning and patching).
🔩
Flux works with your existing tools
Flux works with your Git providers (GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, can even use s3-compatible buckets as a source), all major container registries, and all CI workflow providers.
🔒
Flux is designed with security in mind
Pull vs. Push, least amount of privileges, adherence to Kubernetes security policies and tight integration with security tools and best-practices. Read more about our security considerations.
☸️
Flux works with any Kubernetes and all common Kubernetes tooling
Kustomize, Helm, RBAC, and policy-driven validation (OPA, Kyverno, admission controllers) so it simply falls into place.
🤹
Flux does Multi-Tenancy (and “Multi-everything”)
Flux uses true Kubernetes RBAC via impersonation and supports multiple Git repositories. Multi-cluster infrastructure and apps work out of the box with Cluster API: Flux can use one Kubernetes cluster to manage apps in either the same or other clusters, spin up additional clusters themselves, and manage clusters including lifecycle and fleets.
📞
Flux alerts and notifies
Flux provides health assessments, alerting to external systems, and external events handling. Just “git push”, and get notified on Slack and other chat systems.
👍
Users trust Flux
Flux is a CNCF Graduated project and was categorised as "Adopt" on the CNCF CI/CD Tech Radar (alongside Helm).
💖
Flux has a lovely community that is very easy to work with!
We welcome contributors of any kind. The components of Flux are on Kubernetes core controller-runtime, so anyone can contribute and its functionality can be extended very easily.

The Flux project aspires to be the vendor-neutral home for GitOps in a Cloud Native world. What we achieved up until today is only possible because of our community.

GitHub Discussions

Join the conversation in GitHub Discussions. Everything Flux related ranging from specifications and feature planning to Show & Tell happens here.

Slack

If you want to talk to the Flux team and community in real-time, join us on Slack. This is a great way to get to know everyone. Get a Slack invite, or go to the #flux channel.

Mailing list

Join our (low-traffic) mailing list to stay up to day on announcements and sporadic discussions.

Adopted by

Flux is a collection of tools for keeping Kubernetes clusters in sync with sources of configuration (like Git repositories), and automating updates to configuration when there is new code to deploy.

Declarative

Describe the entire desired state of your system in Git. This includes apps, configuration, dashboards, monitoring, and everything else.

Automated

Use YAML to enforce conformance to the declared system. You don’t need to run kubectl because all changes are synced automatically.

Auditable

Everything is controlled through pull requests. Your Git history provides a sequence of transactions, allowing you to recover state from any snapshot.

Designed for Kubernetes

Declaratively configurable using Custom Resources, state reports in the object’s status and via Kubernetes Events, and integrations with Kubernetes RBAC

Out-of-the-box integrations

Support for e.g. Kustomize, Helm; GitHub, GitLab, Harbor and custom webhooks; notifications to most team communication platforms; and many more.

Extensible

Easily create a continuous delivery solution with only the components you need, or use the GitOps Toolkit to extend Flux.

Some of the biggest organisations have adopted the Flux family of projects for their GitOps needs.

Saiyam provides an excellent introduction to Flux's architecture and its powerful features with a quick demo of Bootstraping using FluxCLI.

Flagger

Kubernetes Operator for the automation of promoting canary deployments using Istio, Linkerd, App Mesh, NGINX, Skipper, Contour, Gloo or Traefik routing for traffic shifting, and Prometheus metrics for canary analysis.

The canary analysis can be extended with webhooks for running system integration/acceptance tests, load tests, or any other custom validation.

GitOps Toolkit

The set of APIs and controllers that make up the runtime for Flux. You can use the GitOps Toolkit to extend Flux, and to build your own systems for continuous delivery.
