Garden Announces Bonsai: A Better Way to Automate CI Pipelines

Developer productivity platform Garden released major product advancements to make it easier to write and automate portable pipelines for Kubernetes. Garden’s smart automation enabled one Fortune 500 team to reduce the runtime of their CI pipeline from one hour to two and half minutes.

The release, called Bonsai, broadens Garden’s scope to support platform teams with an expressive, intuitive way to describe their pipeline, accelerate testing, and enhance developer experience with a new, interactive dashboard and development console.

“Garden got its start by improving the cloud developer experience with production-like environments for rapid iteration and testing,” said Jon Edvald, CEO and co-founder of Garden. “Now, we’re using the same underlying structure to help platform teams provide more efficient pipelines as part of their internal development platform.”

Smart automations to make end-to-end testing 80 percent faster

Garden’s developer productivity survey found that developers spend 5–6 hours a week waiting on CI (continuous integration). That amounts to 5 weeks per developer, per year. With Garden Actions, a major update in the Bonsai release, platform teams simply define their stack using four intuitive Actions: build, deploy, test, and run.

This creates a blueprint of the system that can be used in development, CI, and production, ensuring that tests are always reliable. And because this blueprint is change-aware, it only rebuilds or retests changed code — cutting end-to-end test time by 80 percent or more.

In addition to accelerating CI pipelines, Garden’s Bonsai release frees up developers to focus on writing code instead of wrangling internal tooling.

Developers often juggle various tools as they work on different parts of their application and review code. Garden’s new development console provides one prompt where developers can build, deploy, test, start or stop code syncing, and stream service logs — all in one place.

The console pairs well with the new web-based dashboard, which provides a rich graphical interface for greater control and visibility.

“I want development to be as close to production as possible and also be able to test any kind of feature in isolation,” said Daniel Killenberger, CTO at Garden customer Obligate. “Garden enables that — and makes you take for granted something that with another tool set would be really difficult to achieve.”

Now developers can use Garden’s cloud platform free forever — with no time limit and no credit card required. Large teams can access enterprise-grade features with an annual contract.

Garden also announced early access to Garden Desktop, which adds a fast, desktop-native interface, with autocomplete and rapid hot-key access to the full power of Garden.
