AWS OpsWorks vs Shipit: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS OpsWorks as "Model and manage your entire application from load balancers to databases using Chef". Start from templates for common technologies like Ruby, Node.JS, PHP, and Java, or build your own using Chef recipes to install software packages and perform any task that you can script. AWS OpsWorks can scale your application using automatic load-based or time-based scaling and maintain the health of your application by detecting failed instances and replacing them. You have full control of deployments and automation of each component . On the other hand, Shipit is detailed as "Pure JavaScript deployment tool used by Ghost blogging platform". Shipit is an automation engine and a deployment tool written for node / iojs. Shipit was built to be a Capistrano alternative for people who don't know ruby, or who experienced some issues with it. If you want to write tasks in JavaScript and enjoy the node ecosystem, Shipit is also for you.

AWS OpsWorks and Shipit can be categorized as "Server Configuration and Automation" tools.

Shipit is an open source tool with 4.71K GitHub stars and 199 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Shipit's open source repository on GitHub.
