Crossplane is the cloud native control plane framework that allows you to build control planes without needing to write code. Crossplane has a highly extensible backend that enables you to orchestrate applications and infrastructure no matter where they run and a highly configurable frontend that lets you define the declarative API it offers.

Crossplane was accepted to CNCF on June 25, 2020 and moved to the Incubating maturity level on September 14, 2021.
