Astro is a command line tool for developers to quickly perform the common tasks that make up a modern workflow.
Astro aims to eliminate setup time needed when creating or enhancing micro-service modules. Together Astro and Astrokit provide a framework for incorporating the latest workflow tooling and processes into daily software engineering workflows. Astro does not require any configuration to be used out of the box. As workflow tooling and processes change, existing applications will require no task runner updates or new scrips to use the latest tools.
Astro pulls and executes dockerfiles and associated resources to run services within Docker containers. This lets Astro normalizes the runtime environments so developers can work on any OS and not have to worry about OS specific installation or usages.
