Code Faster on Kubernetes

Are you tired of slow code/test/debug cycles on Kubernetes? Are you an application developer on Kubernetes who just wants auto-reload to work again? Our open source tools are designed for developers who are building cloud-native applications — but don’t want to compromise on their personal productivity.

Minimize friction from idea to users on Kubernetes

Datawire's open source toolkit empowers developers to adopt a cloud-native development workflow for Kubernetes services

  • Idea
  • Code Locally
  • Deploy to Kubernetes
  • Experiment/Canary
  • Measure Impact on Users


Every change starts with an idea or hypothesis.

High velocity organizations focus on getting from idea to users as quickly as possible, enabling continuous improvement.

Datawire’s open source tools make it easy to code faster on Kubernetes.

Code a single service locally

  • Use your favorite IDE, debugger, or any other tool
  • Connect to your dependencies running on a remote cluster so they don’t consume local resources
  • Code in an environment that’s identical to production

Deploy locally, in QA, or in prod

  • Easily deploy 100s of microservices with robust dependency management
  • Deploy only the services that have changed on disk
  • Deploy custom deployment profiles for dev, QA, canary, or any other environment
  • Works with any Kubernetes distribution and Docker Registry
  • Integrate with your CI/CD build pipelines

Fast development workflows

Prototype quickly

You want to just ship a prototype as fast as possible. But you can’t just run microservices locally, and you want a workflow that won’t present headaches when you move into production.

Code locally against a remote Kubernetes cluster
Run your service locally, while still giving your service access to other services and configuration available in Kubernetes. Code with your favorite IDE or any other tools on your local development machine.

Use Git as your operational control plane
Define and maintain all aspects of your service in Git. Map your Git workflow to your cloud workflow.

Deploy your service into your Kubernetes cluster
Get your service and its dependencies running in your Kubernetes cluster from Git. Do this the same way, every time.

Update with confidence

Your prototype service has real users. How do you still update quickly, without impacting your users? You need a way to easily roll out and rollback new updates, while limiting the impact of bugs on your users.

Arbitrary canary deployments
Deploy as many different versions of your service as needed. Control exactly how much traffic gets routed to each version of your service.

Integrate with your existing CI infrastructure
Use any standard CI infrastructure to automatically deploy your services from Git into Kubernetes.

Integrate your existing authentication scheme, so you can easily expose your service directly to end users without requiring new credentials.
