Blue Ocean vs GoCD: 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; GoCD: Open source continuous delivery tool allows for advanced workflow modeling and dependencies management. GoCD is an open source continuous delivery server created by ThoughtWorks. GoCD offers business a first-class build and deployment engine for complete control and visibility.

Blue Ocean and GoCD can be primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by Blue Ocean are:

  • Sophisticated visualizations of CD pipelines, allowing for fast and intuitive comprehension of software pipeline status.
  • Pipeline editor (In Development) that makes automating CD pipelines approachable by guiding the user through an intuitive and visual process to create a pipeline.
  • Personalization of the Jenkins UI to suit the role-based needs of each member of the DevOps team.

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

  • Model complex workflows with dependency management and parallel execution
  • Easy to pass once-built binaries between stages
  • Visibility into your end-to-end workflow. Track a change from commit to deploy at a glance

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

I'm open to anything. just want something that break less and doesn't need me to pay for it, and can be hosted on Docker. our scripting language is powershell core. so it's better to support it. also we are building dotnet core in our pipeline, so if they have anything related that helps with the CI would be nice.
