Polycrate is a framework to build platforms. A platform can be anything from a bash script to automate your daily tasks, to a full-blown Kubernetes deployment.



Polycrate revolves around a Workspace of Blocks. Blocks have Actions that can be automated using Workflows. This way you can build complex but flexible automations and platforms that you can easily share with your team.

Polycrate can be used to create an overarching "platform development framework" for your organization - using shared Blocks and Workspaces makes it easy to establish common tactics and best-practices for deployment and operations within your teams.

Polycrate has been created to help builders to build faster. It's being developed in a cloud-native spirit but is fully capable of handling "legacy" infrastructure and operations as well. Polycrate makes it easy for individuals to manage complex IT systems with confidence. With its "Infrastructure-as-Code" approach, Polycrate makes your operational tasks portable and repeatable.

Polycrate is packaged into a portable container that comes with a plethora of useful tooling out of the box. Construct your infrastructure with Terraform, automate your deployments with Ansible and manage your Containers with Kubernetes. Polycrate works on all major operating systems and comes with only a single dependency - Docker.
