AWS CodeDeploy vs fastlane: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS CodeDeploy as "Coordinate application deployments to Amazon EC2 instances". 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. On the other hand, fastlane is detailed as "Connect all iOS deployment tools into one streamlined workflow". fastlane lets you define and run your deployment pipelines for different environments. It helps you unify your app’s release process and automate the whole process. fastlane connects all fastlane tools and third party tools, like CocoaPods.

AWS CodeDeploy and fastlane are primarily classified as "Deployment as a Service" and "Mobile Continuous Integration" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by AWS CodeDeploy are:

  • AWS CodeDeploy fully automates your code deployments, allowing you to deploy reliably and rapidly
  • AWS CodeDeploy helps maximize your application availability by performing rolling updates across your Amazon EC2 instances and tracking application health according to configurable rules
  • AWS CodeDeploy allows you to easily launch and track the status of your deployments through the AWS Management Console or the AWS CLI

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

  • Connect all build tools together
  • Define multiple lanes for different needs
  • Jenkins Integration

"Automates code deployments" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeDeploy over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking fastlane.

fastlane is an open source tool with 25.7K GitHub stars and 3.93K GitHub forks. Here's a link to fastlane's open source repository on GitHub.
