Declarative Pipelines in Jenkins

A new way to define your pipelines in Jenkins

Pipeline is quickly establishing itself as the direction that Jenkins jobs are going, enabling the definition of a complete CD pipeline in a single job; Pipeline as Code via the “Jenkinsfile”; job durability across master restarts; and more. I’ll be talking here about the next evolution for Pipeline that is just now hitting 1.0: a simple, declarative model to define your Pipelines with no need to write scripts. This configuration syntax for Pipeline allows you to automatically configure all stages of your pipeline, the complete build environment, post-build actions, notifications and more. All while providing syntactic and semantic validation before the build actually gets going. We'll also play with the just-released initial version of the Pipeline Editor, built to work with Declarative!
