During the month of July the majority of the maintainers will be on summer vacation 🏖️ Development will continue as usual, but expect a slower pace for discussions and PR reviews. Why not take this opportunity to build a plugin?

What is Backstage?

Backstage is an open platform for building developer portals. Powered by a centralized software catalog, Backstage restores order to your microservices and infrastructure and enables your product teams to ship high-quality code quickly — without compromising autonomy.

Backstage unifies all your infrastructure tooling, services, and documentation to create a streamlined development environment from end to end.


Out of the box, Backstage includes:

  • Backstage Software Catalog for managing all your software (microservices, libraries, data pipelines, websites, ML models, etc.)
  • Backstage Software Templates for quickly spinning up new projects and standardizing your tooling with your organization’s best practices
  • Backstage TechDocs for making it easy to create, maintain, find, and use technical documentation, using a "docs like code" approach
  • Plus, a growing ecosystem of open source plugins that further expand Backstage’s customizability and functionality

Backstage was created by Spotify but is now hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a Sandbox level project. Read the announcement here.
