Blue Ocean vs Concourse: What are the differences?

Blue Ocean: A reboot of the Jenkins CI/CD User Experience. Designed from the ground up for Jenkins Pipeline and compatible with Freestyle jobs, Blue Ocean reduces clutter and increases clarity for every member of your team; Concourse: Pipeline-based CI system written in Go. Concourse's principles reduce the risk of switching to and from Concourse, by encouraging practices that decouple your project from your CI's little details, and keeping all configuration in declarative files that can be checked into version control.

Blue Ocean and Concourse can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.

"Beautiful interface" is the primary reason why developers consider Blue Ocean over the competitors, whereas "Real pipelines" was stated as the key factor in picking Concourse.

Blue Ocean and Concourse are both open source tools. It seems that Concourse with 3.99K GitHub stars and 482 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Blue Ocean with 2.49K GitHub stars and 435 GitHub forks.

DigitalOcean, Starbucks, and HelloFresh are some of the popular companies that use Concourse, whereas Blue Ocean is used by CityLiv, Nexus National Security Network, and iCodeBetter. Concourse has a broader approval, being mentioned in 18 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to Blue Ocean, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

I would definetly recommend Concourse to you, as it is one of the most advanced modern methods of making CI/CD while Jenkins is an old monolithic dinosaur. Concourse itself is cloudnative and containerbased which helps you to build simple, high-performance and scalable CI/CD pipelines. In my opinion, the only lack of skills you have with Concourse is your own knowledge of how to build pipelines and automate things. Technincally there is no lack, i would even say you can extend it way more easily. But as a Con it is more easy to interact with Jenkins if you are only used to UIs. Concourse needs someone which is capable of using CLIs.
