On November 7, 2018, CircleCI announced the launch of Orbs, which allow you to create reusable components for CircleCI workflows. Orbs enable you to simplify your CI/CD configuration by reusing existing orb jobs or commands, in much the same way that Pulumi enables you to simplify the delivery of your cloud native infrastructure by sharing and reusing existing components.
