Azure DevOps vs Capybara: What are the differences?

What is Azure DevOps? Services for teams to share code, track work, and ship software. Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support.

What is Capybara? Acceptance test framework for web applications. Capybara helps you test web applications by simulating how a real user would interact with your app. It is agnostic about the driver running your tests and comes with Rack::Test and Selenium support built in. WebKit is supported through an external gem.

Azure DevOps can be classified as a tool in the "Project Management" category, while Capybara is grouped under "Testing Frameworks".

Some of the features offered by Azure DevOps are:

  • Agile Tools: kanban boards, backlogs, scrum boards
  • Reporting: dashboards, widgets, Power BI
  • Git: free private repositories, pull requests

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

  • No setup necessary for Rails and Rack application. Works out of the box.
  • Intuitive API which mimics the language an actual user would use.
  • Switch the backend your tests run against from fast headless mode to an actual browser with no changes to your tests.
