Keptn is an event-based control plane for continuous delivery and automated operations for cloud-native applications. Please find the documentation on our website, and read the motivation about Keptn on our Why Keptn? page.

In addition, you can find the roadmap of the Keptn project here. It provides an overview of user stories that are currently in the focus of development for the next release.


Keptn runs on Kubernetes. To get started, you can follow our Quickstart guide.

Developing Keptn

The easiest way to develop is to spin up a Kubernetes cluster locally by using K3d (requires docker) via the following commands:

curl -s | TAG=v5.3.0 bash
k3d cluster create mykeptn -p "8082:[email protected]" --k3s-arg "[email protected]:*"

Afterwards, install Keptn CLI:

curl -sL | bash

And install Keptn (Note: remove --use-case=continuous-delivery in case you don’t want to install helm-service and jmeter-service):

keptn install --use-case=continuous-delivery

Please follow the instructions printed by the CLI to connect to your Keptn installation.

Installing Keptn from Master branch

Note: This will install a potentially unstable version of Keptn.

If you want to install the latest master version of Keptn onto your cluster you can do that by using the development helm charts repository located at .

helm repo add keptn-dev    # Add the keptn-dev helm repo
helm repo update                                       # Update all repo contents
helm search repo keptn-dev --devel --versions          # List all versions present in the keptn-dev repo

# Select a chart version from the previous command that you want to install

helm install -n keptn-dev keptn keptn-dev/keptn --create-namespace --version "<the-version-you-selected-previously>"

You can find more information in our docs.


Please find details on regular hosted community events as well as our Slack workspace in the keptn/community repo.
