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 or a buildpack. Simply connect your account on a Git provider such as GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket.
Automatically build and deploy every commit you make, or you can create rules for specific branches and pull requests.
Deploy Docker images from external registries such as Docker Hub, Google Container Registry, or GitHub Packages container registry. Save your credentials to easily access private registries.
Deploy addon databases & services such as MinIO and RabbitMQ in one click 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. A job can build and run any code from a repository — or use an existing Docker image from a public or private registry.
Create team accounts at no extra cost, with all the features of user accounts. Work together seamlessly with the real-time user interface that shows you what your team members are doing. Granular role-based access control means you can securely give your developers access to exactly what they need.
Work in real time. All actions, updates and changes are instantly reflected in the user interface, resulting in unparalleled developer experience.
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 with one click.
Save groups of build and runtime variables to inherit in your deployments. Get connection details from addons and create dynamic variables using templating.
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.
