A list of tools that work with Cloud Native Buildpacks.


CircleCI is a continuous integration and delivery platform. The CNB project maintains an integration, called an orb, which allows users to run pack commands inside their pipelines.

Gitlab Auto DevOps

Gitlab is a web based DevOps platform. It uses pack as part of the Auto DevOps feature, to build applications prior to deploying them.


kpack is a Kubernetes native platform maintained by VMware under the VMware Tanzu project that utilizes unprivileged Kubernetes primitives to provide builds of OCI images as a platform implementation of Cloud Native Buildpacks (CNB).

Project “Piper”

Project “Piper” (maintained by SAP) is a set of ready-made Continuous Delivery pipelines for direct use in your project. It now also implements the CNB Platform spec as a step and makes it available in your Jenkins pipeline.


Tekton is an open-source CI/CD system platform implementation running on k8s. There are two Tekton tasks maintained by the CNB project, both of which use the lifecycle directly (i.e. they do not use pack).


Pack is a tool maintained by the Cloud Native Buildpacks project to support the use of buildpacks.
