AWS CodeBuild vs Yarn: What are the differences?

What is AWS CodeBuild? 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.

What is Yarn? A new package manager for JavaScript. Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.

AWS CodeBuild belongs to "Continuous Integration" category of the tech stack, while Yarn can be primarily classified under "Front End Package Manager".

"Pay per minute" is the top reason why over 4 developers like AWS CodeBuild, while over 74 developers mention "Incredibly fast" as the leading cause for choosing Yarn.

Yarn is an open source tool with 36.2K GitHub stars and 2.22K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Yarn's open source repository on GitHub.

StackShare, Intuit, and Swat.io are some of the popular companies that use Yarn, whereas AWS CodeBuild is used by Convox, Volta Industries, and ChromaDex. Yarn has a broader approval, being mentioned in 623 company stacks & 528 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodeBuild, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to AWS CodeBuild and Yarn?
    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.
    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.

    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!

    Yarn is a wonderful alternative to the built-in npm command-line interface. Dependency installation is crazy fast, because it caches every package and performs operations in parallel.

    I prefer yarn instead of npm.

    Both npm and yarn work great.

    I don’t see any overwhelming reason to choose one over another.

    I just like yarn, that’s it.

    We use it in every JS project. Blazing fast package manager for node.js. Easy to use in Docker containers

    Used in Coolfront Mobile and "Charlie" (flat rate search engine) as packaging mechanism.

    We tend to stick to npm, yarn is only a fancy alternative, not 10x better.
