Buddy vs DeployBot: What are the differences?
Buddy: Build, test and deploy on push in seconds. Git platform for web and software developers with Docker-based tools for Continuous Integration and Deployment; DeployBot: Instantly deploy from Github, Bitbucket, or Gitlab without complex scripts, commands or configs. DeployBot makes it simple to deploy your work anywhere. You can compile or process your code in a Docker container on our infrastructure, and we'll copy it to your servers once everything has been successfully built.
Buddy and DeployBot can be primarily classified as "Continuous Deployment" tools.
Some of the features offered by Buddy are:
- Automatic deployments on push to branch
- Docker-based builds and tests
- 10-minute setup of complete environment
On the other hand, DeployBot provides the following key features:
- Manually deploy with a click in the app, automatically deploy on each push, or use deploy tags in a commit [deploy:production].
- DeployBot gathers new and changed files from your repositories since the last deployment. You can even preview the changes first.
- Files are uploaded, SSH commands are executed and deployment hooks are triggered. Everything is logged for you.
"Docker" is the primary reason why developers consider Buddy over the competitors, whereas "Easy setup" was stated as the key factor in picking DeployBot.
