Buildkite vs Snap CI: What are the differences?

Developers describe Buildkite as "Fast, secure and scalable CI/CD for all your software projects". CI and build automation tool that combines the power of your own build infrastructure with the convenience of a managed, centralized web UI. Used by Shopify, Basecamp, Digital Ocean, Venmo, Cochlear, Bugsnag and more. On the other hand, Snap CI is detailed as "Build, test, and deploy software faster with Snap's continuous integration and deployment tool". Snap CI is a cloud-based continuous integration & continuous deployment tool with powerful deployment pipelines. Integrates seamlessly with GitHub and provides fast feedback so you can deploy with ease.

Buildkite and Snap CI can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by Buildkite are:

  • Fast and stable builds
  • Open source agent runs on almost any machine and architecture
  • Freedom to use your own internal or pre-release tools and services

On the other hand, Snap CI provides the following key features:

  • Deployment Options - Heroku, AWS
  • System Libraries - Your build runs on a RedHat 6-compatible system with commonly required libraries
  • Customization Options - In addition to all that we support out of the box, we offer you the chance to customize your build extensively.

"Great customer support" is the primary reason why developers consider Buildkite over the competitors, whereas "Github integration" was stated as the key factor in picking Snap CI.

Shopify, 99designs, and Teleport are some of the popular companies that use Buildkite, whereas Snap CI is used by ThoughtWorks, Hazeorid, and Firecracker. Buildkite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 37 company stacks & 7 developers stacks; compared to Snap CI, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

      Travis CI
      Free for open source projects, our CI environment provides multiple runtimes (e.g. Node.js or PHP versions), data stores and so on. Because of this, hosting your project on travis-ci.com means you can effortlessly test your library or applications against multiple runtimes and data stores without even having all of them installed locally.
      GitLab CI
      GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.
      Codeship
      Codeship runs your automated tests and configured deployment when you push to your repository. It takes care of managing and scaling the infrastructure so that you are able to test and release more frequently and get faster feedback for building the product your users need.

      I use Buildkite because it's the only CI system I've found that strikes a reasonable balance between flexibility and usability. You can accomplish pretty much any standard CI task out of the box with a simple, easy to understand interface and sane defaults, while the hooks and pipeline systems offer enough configurability to rival Jenkins - but without the misery that using Jenkins is certain to entail.

      I use Buildkite because it balances enormous flexibility with easy out of the box configuration. We use it for everything from automating builds (which involves running huge test suites where the parallel builds feature is invaluable) to doing nightly batch jobs for our production environment. Super flexible, amazing tool

      Buildkite provides testing of the Rails application via a Docker container with Docker Compose. The Buildkite Agent runs on a small Digital Ocean droplet, runs the integration and model tests, and marks the GitHub commit for Heroku to perform their auto-deployments once the build is green.
