Getting Started

You have various options to set up the platform right away:

Use Cases

🚢 Manage environments without SSH or kubectl

Replace multiple tools with a single platform that allows you to manage your entire infrastructure and the containerized applications that run on it. You're also able to initiate deployments to multiple environments simultaneously instead of repeated, manual processes.

⛴️ Instant test environments for QA

QA no longer needs help to test your services. Enable them to autonomously configure and deploy various versions of microservices to test environments. They have the flexibility to run arbitrary workloads on any accessible nodes, potentially transforming their local machines or any remote infrastructures into testing platforms.

⛵️ Container management across environments

Whether you're a developer or an indie hacker, bring your own infrastructure and manage all your containers and applications from one place while our software is running either as a SaaS or on your infrastructure.

🛳️ CD & Version Management

Bring transparency to your SDLC by configuring versions and deployments of your containerized stack from any registry using our platform. Automate your deployments by generating a CD token you can use with GitHub Actions and turn deployments painless and effortless while you can focus more on the development of your software.

🛠️ Manage container settings without access

Editing container settings no longer requires direct access or expertise in JSON formatting. Our platform provides a user-friendly JSON editor, enabling you to modify settings without accessing the containers. In case of deployment issues, you can easily make necessary adjustments using the platform's config editor screen. Additionally, you can create bundle configurations to avoid manual configuration for each container.

Deployment Options

Besides the self-hosted instance, you can check out the platform's alpha at app.dyrectorio.com. The platform is still in the works, we might reset the database, so it's not recommended for production yet. If you are interested in using dyrector.io in production, reach out to us via email and we'll set up a stable instance for you.

How it Works

dyrector.io consists of an agent (GoLang) and a platform (UI developed in React.js, Next.js. Backend developed in Node.js, Nest.js). There are two types of agents communicating with the platform: one for Docker and another for Kubernetes. Communication takes place in gRPC with TLS encryption. The data is managed in a PostgreSQL database which we use with Prisma ORM.

We use semantic versioning, but shifted to the right, we don't bump major versions until we reach the beta phase.

The minor version is raised if:

  • introduction of a breaking API change (proto or HTTP)
  • new feature set is completed
  • milestone is reached
  • agent configuration changes

Patch version is raised if:

  • important fixes in develop
  • any other reason
