Appveyor vs Azure DevOps: What are the differences?

What is Appveyor? 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.

What is Azure DevOps? Services for teams to share code, track work, and ship software. Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support.

Appveyor and Azure DevOps are primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" and "Project Management" tools respectively.

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, Azure DevOps provides the following key features:

  • Agile Tools: kanban boards, backlogs, scrum boards
  • Reporting: dashboards, widgets, Power BI
  • Git: free private repositories, pull requests

"Github integration" is the top reason why over 18 developers like Appveyor, while over 11 developers mention "Complete and powerful" as the leading cause for choosing Azure DevOps.

    Reviews of Appveyor and Azure DevOps
    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.

    We use VSTS to host our repos, to manage our backlog and plan our sprints, to track our work (tasks and bugs), host our knowledge-base (wiki) and a lot more. I am the team admin.
