Simplify infrastructure/app testing/deployment

Project description


CI/CD PyPi npm code style: black


Runway is a lightweight integration app designed to ease management of infrastructure tools.

Its main goals are to encourage GitOps best-practices, avoid convoluted Makefiles/scripts (enabling identical deployments from a workstation or CI job), and enable developers/admins to use the best tool for any given job.


  • Centralized environment-specific configuration
  • Automatic environment identification from git branches
  • Automatic linting/verification
  • Support of IAM roles to assume for each deployment
  • Terraform backend/workspace config management w/per-environment tfvars
  • Automatic kubectl/terraform version management per-environment

Supported Deployment Tools

  • Kubectl
  • Serverless Framework
  • Stacker (CloudFormation)
  • Static websites (build & deploy to S3+CloudFront)
  • Terraform


A typical Runway configuration is unobtrusive -- it just lists the deployment order and locations (regions).

  - modules:
    -  # terraform resources
    - backend.sls  # serverless lambda functions
    - frontend  # static web site
    environments:  # Environment settings
            foo: dev-bar
            foo: prod-bar

The example above contains enough information for Runway to deploy all resources, lambda functions and a static website backed by S3 and Cloudfront in either dev or prod environments


Runway is available via any of the following installation methods. Use whatever works best for your project/team (it's the same application no matter how you obtain it).
