The Jenkinsfile-Runner-Fn project is a Fn Project (a container native, cloud agnostic serverless platform) function to run Jenkins pipelines. It will process a GitHub webhook, git clone the repository and execute the Jenkinsfile in that git repository. It allows scalability and pay per use with zero cost if not used.
This function allows
Jenkinsfile execution without needing a persistent Jenkins master running in the same way as Jenkins X Serverless, but using the Fn Project platform (and supported providers like Oracle Functions) instead of Kubernetes.
Fn Project vs AWS Lambda
The function is very similar to the one in jenkinsfile-runner-lambda with just a small change in the signature. The main difference between Lambda and Fn is in the packaging, as Lambda layers are limited in size and are expanded in
/optwhile Fn allows a custom
Dockerfile where you can install whatever you want in a much easier way, just need to include the function code and entrypoint from
fnproject/fn-java-fdk. Read the complete article here.
