Bitbucket vs Selenium: What are the differences?

Developers describe Bitbucket as "One place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private repositories". Bitbucket gives teams one place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private Git repositories. Teams choose Bitbucket because it has a superior Jira integration, built-in CI/CD, & is free for up to 5 users. On the other hand, Selenium is detailed as "Web Browser Automation". Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.

Bitbucket belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Selenium can be primarily classified under "Browser Testing".

"Free private repos", "Simple setup" and "Nice ui and tools" are the key factors why developers consider Bitbucket; whereas "Automates browsers", "Testing" and "Essential tool for running test automation" are the primary reasons why Selenium is favored.

Selenium is an open source tool with 14.9K GitHub stars and 4.97K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Selenium's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Bitbucket has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1750 company stacks & 1492 developers stacks; compared to Selenium, which is listed in 776 company stacks and 440 developer stacks.

    #OpenSourceCloud

    I use GitLab when building side-projects and MVPs. The interface and interactions are close enough to those of GitHub to prevent cognitive switching costs between professional and personal projects hosted on different services.

    GitLab also provides a suite of tools including issue/project management, CI/CD with GitLab CI, and validation/landing pages with GitLab Pages. With everything in one place, on an #OpenSourceCloud GitLab makes it easy for me to manage much larger projects on my own, than would be possible with other solutions or tools.

    It's petty I know, but I can also read the GitLab code diffs far more easily than diffs on GitHub or Bitbucket...they just look better in my opinion.

    Bitbucket provides 5 private repositories for free that is I believe the best feature. GitLab seems very simmilar to GitHub. The only reason I've choosen GitHub is its popularity. It seems faster than GitLab, uglier than Bitbucket and featured as others. The best open source projects are hosted on GitHub. Many applications are integrated with GitHub like my favourite #GitKraken.

    An easy one this time - source control. Well, should we even think about anything else but Git these days? :) As for the repository, we use Bitbucket for only historical reasons. We used it since the time when the pricing model was more convenient than GitHub. And Bitbucket does the work for us perfectly, so no real reason to switch.

    Confluence

    How we ended up choosing Confluence as our internal web / wiki / documentation platform at Katana.

    It happened because we chose Bitbucket over GitHub . We had Katana's first hackaton to assemble and test product engineering platform. It turned out that at that time you could have Bitbucket's private repositories and a team of five people for free - Done!

    This decision led us to using Bitbucket pipelines for CI, Jira for Kanban, and finally, Confluence. We also use Microsoft Office 365 and started with using OneNote, but SharePoint is still a nightmare product to use to collaborate, so OneNote had to go.

    Now, when thinking of the key value of Confluence to Katana then it is Product Requirements Management. We use Page Properties macros, integrations (with Slack , InVision, Sketch etc.) to manage Product Roadmap, flash out Epic and User Stories.

    We ended up with using Confluence because it is the best fit for our current engineering ecosystem.

    I use GitHub because it's the coolest kid on the block for open source. Searching for repos you need/want is easy.

    Especially with the apache foundation moving their workloads to them, unlimited private repos, and a package registry on the way, they are becoming the one stop shop for open source needs.

    I'm curious to see how the GitHub Sponsors(patreon for developers) plays out, and what it'll do for open source. Hopefully, they design it in a way where it's not abused by big tech to "plant" developers that look like they're building open source when they're actually building proprietary tools.

    #Githubmarketplace

    A bit difference in GitHub and GitLab though both are Version Control repository management services which provides key component in the software development workflow. A decision of choosing GitHub over GitLab is major leap extension from code management, to deployment and monitoring alongside looking beyond the code base hosting provided best fitted tools for developer communities.

    • Authentication stages - With GitLab you can set and modify peopleโ€™s permissions according to their role. In GitHub, you can decide if someone gets a read or write access to a repository.
    • Built-In Continuous Integrations - GitLab offers its very own CI for free. No need to use an external CI service. And if you are already used to an external CI, you can obviously integrate with Jenkins, etc whereas GitHub offers various 3rd party integrations โ€“ such as Travis CI, CircleCI or Codeship โ€“ for running and testing your code. However, thereโ€™s no built-in CI solution at the moment.
    • Import/Export Resources - GitLab offers detailed documentation on how to import your data from other vendors โ€“ such as GitHub, Bitbucket to GitLab. GitHub, on the other hand, does not offer such detailed documentation for the most common git repositories. However, GitHub offers to use GitHub Importer if you have your source code in Subversion, Mercurial, TFS and others.

    Also when it comes to exporting data, GitLab seems to do a pretty solid job, offering you the ability to export your projects including the following data:

    • Wiki and project repositories
    • Project uploads
    • The configuration including webhooks and services
    • Issues with comments, merge requests with diffs and comments, labels, milestones, snippets, and other project entities.

    GitHub, on the other hand, seems to be more restrictive when it comes to export features of existing GitHub repositories. * Integrations - #githubmarketplace gives you an essence to have multiple and competitive integrations whereas you will find less in the GitLab.

    So go ahead with better understanding.

    For our digital QA organization to support a complex hybrid monolith/microservice architecture, our team took on the lofty goal of building out a commonized UI test automation framework. One of the primary requisites included a technical minimalist threshold such that an engineer or analyst with fundamental knowledge of JavaScript could automate their tests with greater ease. Just to list a few: - Nightwatchjs - Selenium - Cucumber - GitHub - Go.CD - Docker - ExpressJS - React - PostgreSQL

    With this structure, we're able to combine the automation efforts of each team member into a centralized repository while also providing new relevant metrics to business owners.

    When you interact with CircleCI's web application, all of your requests are hitting the #API hosts. We handle the majority of our authentication via #OAuth from GitHub or Bitbucket. We provide programmatic access to everything exposed in the UI through an API token that you can generate once you have authenticated.

    I chose WebdriverIO and Appium to implement a E2E tests solution on a native mobile app. WebdriverIO goes well beyond just implementing the Selenium / Appium protocol and allows to run tests in parallel out of the box. Appium has the big advantage of supporting iOS and Android platforms, so the test codebase and tools are exactly the same, which greatly reduces the learning curve and implementation time.

    I was looking for an alternative to GitHub, where I could store my own private repositories. BitBucket filled that need and has performed extremely well.

    I use Bitbucket's git repositories as a low cost config sync between servers.

    We use Bitbucket and Bitbucket Pipelines because of its tight integration with JIRA and code authorization features.

    The primary drawback is that its extension ecosystem (e.g., PR review tools) is miles behind Github
