Why use Epinio?

Developer Happiness

Reduce the stress and focus on your application logic instead of Container or Kubernetes details.

Fast & Lightweight

Epinio runs well on any Kubernetes Cluster including your local development machine with Rancher Desktop

Flexible with Sane Defaults

Epinio uses Kubernetes generics and open-source components to give a fantastic developer experience without locking you into our idea of what an application looks like.

Install and use Epinio in under 5 minutes

Get access to a kubernetes cluster. Install cert-manager, if not already present.

Install Epinio in the cluster using helm.

Open the Web UI, or install the Epinio client for operation from a terminal.

Log into the cluster.

Push your application. Epinio builds the application image for you.

Push from Source

How it Works

{{ .Site.Title }}

The Epinio API server uses build packs to create container images from source code.

A single `epinio push` builds an image and deploys the application. Once Epinio has been installed no further Kubernetes knowledge is needed to develop and deploy applications.
