Earthly is a build automation system for the post-container era. It builds upon technologies like Docker and BuildKit to deliver builds that are self-sufficient, reproducible, portable and parallel. You can use Earthly to create Docker images, output artifacts or to run tests. Earthly is meant not to replace build systems, but rather to act as the glue layer between them. Founded by Vlad A. Ionescu in 2020, Earthly Technologies is backed by investors that include Bessemer Venture Partners, Hack VC, Uncorrelated Ventures, 468 Capital, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and is headquartered in Redwood City.
