Adopt ?

We added Kaniko to the Radar in October 2022, shortly after Kubernetes moved on from supporting Docker, highlighting at the time the trend away from Docker as the default to build container images within container-based pipelines. Since then, we've expanded our experience with Kaniko across different pipelines' tooling and configurations. Our teams appreciate its flexibility and performance which is why we’re moving it to Adopt, highlighting Kaniko as the default tool in this space.

Trial ?

Most of today's CI/CD pipeline tools and platforms are built on containers as runtimes. Many of our teams are using Kaniko to build container images from within those container-based pipelines. This comes as part of a trend away from Docker as the de facto standard for container runtimes. With Kaniko, you can build your images without using a Docker daemon. This helps avoid the security issue of Docker's "privileged" mode, which would be necessary for any "Docker-in-Docker" activity. Moreover, you don't have to assume that your pipeline has access to a Docker daemon in the first place, which cannot be taken for granted anymore and often requires extra configuration.
