Appveyor vs DotCi: 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 DotCi? Jenkins plugin with GitHub and Docker integration. DotCi is a Jenkins plugin created by Groupon that makes job management easy with built-in GitHub integration, push-button job creation, and YAML powered build configuration and customization. It comes prepackaged with Docker support as well, which means bootstrapping a new build environment from scratch can take as little as 15 minutes. DotCi has been a critical tool for Groupon internally for managing build and release pipelines for the wide variety of technologies in their SOA landscape.

Appveyor and DotCi 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, DotCi provides the following key features:

  • Deep Integration with Source Control – for us that’s Github Enterprise
  • Integration with Github webhooks
  • Feedback sent to the committer or pusher via Email, Hipchat, Campfire, etc.

DotCi is an open source tool with 505 GitHub stars and 65 GitHub forks. Here's a link to DotCi's open source repository on GitHub.

        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 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.
