Introduction to Northflank
Northflank is the full-stack cloud platform. Seamlessly build, deploy and scale your code, jobs and databases.
Northflank allows you to:
Build and deploy code written in any language, using any framework, with a Dockerfile.
Link your preferred version control platform and Northflank can automatically build and deploy every commit you make, or you can create rules for specific branches and pull requests.
Work in real time. All actions, updates and changes are instantly reflected in the user interface, resulting in unparalleled developer experience.
Create team accounts at no extra cost, with all the features of user accounts. The real-time user interface shows you what your team members are working on so you can work together seamlessly and granular role-based access control means you can securely give your developers access to exactly what they need.
Deploy databases & other storage solutions such as MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis & MinIO at the click of a button and connect these with your services to create fully stateful applications.
Run your code on a schedule or as and when you need to with cron and manual jobs. As with services, a job can build and run any code with a Dockerfile — or use an existing Docker image from a public or private registry.
Set up dedicated development, staging and production environments with pipelines. When you are happy with a development build, simply promote it to another linked deployment service in the next stage.
All you need to get started is an account on a Git provider such as GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket, and a code repository with a Dockerfile.
Within minutes you will be able to build and run your code, deploy websites and micro-services, create development pipelines, configure secure networking and much more.
The getting started section contains walkthrough guides to get you up-and-running on Northflank. They follow the in-app onboarding achievements, which can be found under the rocket button in the top-right of the application.
