AWS CodeBuild vs biicode: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS CodeBuild 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鈥檛 need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers. On the other hand, biicode is detailed as "C/C++ dependencies manager with a hosting service". For C/C++ developers that think a dependency manager is needed, biicode is a multiplatform tool and hosting service that allows you to build your projects easily, integrate third party code and reuse code among projects with just #includes.

AWS CodeBuild can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Integration" category, while biicode is grouped under "C / C++ Build Tools".

Some of the features offered by AWS CodeBuild are:

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

On the other hand, biicode provides the following key features:

  • Fit C/C++ source code from biicode just by writting appropiate #includes (yours and others)
  • Manage dependencies at file level
  • Share and publish to biicode with one command

"Pay per minute" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeBuild over the competitors, whereas "To set-up my C or C++ projects in a blink of an eye" was stated as the key factor in picking biicode.

        What are some alternatives to AWS CodeBuild and biicode?
        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.
        AWS CodePipeline
        CodePipeline builds, tests, and deploys your code every time there is a code change, based on the release process models you define.
        Apache Maven
        Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.
        GitLab CI
        GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.
        AWS CodeDeploy
        AWS CodeDeploy is a service that automates code deployments to Amazon EC2 instances. AWS CodeDeploy makes it easier for you to rapidly release new features, helps you avoid downtime during deployment, and handles the complexity of updating your applications.

        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!
