Appveyor vs AWS CodeBuild: What are the differences?

Developers describe Appveyor as "Continuous Integration and Deployment service for busy Windows developers". AppVeyor aims to give powerful Continuous Integration and Deployment tools to every .NET developer without the hassle of setting up and maintaining their own build server. On the other hand, AWS CodeBuild is detailed as "Build and test code with continuous scaling". AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, you don’t need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers.

Appveyor and AWS CodeBuild can be primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by Appveyor are:

  • Scriptless, repetitive, one-click deployment of build artifacts to multiple environments
  • YAML configuration
  • Backed by Windows Azure platform

On the other hand, AWS CodeBuild provides the following key features:

  • Fully Managed Build Service
  • Continuous Scaling
  • Enables Continuous Integration

"Github integration" is the primary reason why developers consider Appveyor over the competitors, whereas "Pay per minute" was stated as the key factor in picking AWS CodeBuild.

According to the StackShare community, AWS CodeBuild has a broader approval, being mentioned in 21 company stacks & 14 developers stacks; compared to Appveyor, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 16 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Appveyor and AWS CodeBuild?
      TeamCity
      TeamCity is a user-friendly continuous integration (CI) server for professional developers, build engineers, and DevOps. It is trivial to setup and absolutely free for small teams and open source projects.
      Jenkins
      In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
      CircleCI
      Continuous integration and delivery platform helps software teams rapidly release code with confidence by automating the build, test, and deploy process. Offers a modern software development platform that lets teams ramp.
      Travis CI
      Free for open source projects, our CI environment provides multiple runtimes (e.g. Node.js or PHP versions), data stores and so on. Because of this, hosting your project on travis-ci.com means you can effortlessly test your library or applications against multiple runtimes and data stores without even having all of them installed locally.
      Codeship
      Codeship runs your automated tests and configured deployment when you push to your repository. It takes care of managing and scaling the infrastructure so that you are able to test and release more frequently and get faster feedback for building the product your users need.

      I recommend using Travis CI and/or Appveyor in all projects.

      Projects using these tools have given me confidence to know that I don't cause any breaking changes. Travis CI and Appveyor have functionality to test components of a project across multiple installation projects to ensure that modifications don't break a project. These tools integrate easily with GitHub and are useful in open source projects that must review contributions from many different people.

      Review ofAWS CodeBuildAWS CodeBuild

      The open-source Convox Platform-as-a-Service is built entirely on AWS cloud services.

      Through this lens, it's been obvious that AWS has been missing a managed build service. For the past year we've had to work around this by building our own build service on ECS and ECR. You can read more on my AWS Missing Parts: Build Service blog post.

      So I'm excited to finally have this service. After a quick weekend prototype, the service works as expected and will unlock Cheaper, Faster and Safer Builds for our systems.

      This is a classic AWS service. It's tricky to figure out all the options. I recommend jumping straight to the Docker example docs:

      You'll need to figure IAM, Build Project JSON, and Build Spec YAML to get it all working.

      But once you do, you've unlocked managed builds on small, medium or large compute types. No instances required!

      Review ofAppveyorAppveyor

      Appveyor, is awesome, it provides a lot of functionalities and a reduced price. If you want .NET CI, appveyor is the best option. Ever. Awesome support, easy configuration, private nuget repo included, many integrations, and useful documentation. The only downside is, sometime it's a little bit slow.
