Netlify announced Netlify Build Plugins, a set of tools that allows developers to easily customize and automate CI/CD workflows for Jamstack websites and web applications.

Previously, developers had to set up changes or integrations to the build process by configuring every command to run at build, downloading and validating every dependency, and writing the code to make it all work, the company explained. 

Build Plugins are designed to make developers more productive by creating a CI/CD workflow designed for frontend developers, offering plugins reviewed by the Netlify team, enabling the use of an existing plugin or bringing your own, and allowing one-click install from the Netlify UI.
