What is 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.

What is Jenkins?

In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.

What is 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.

    Decisions about Codeship, Jenkins, and Travis CI

    Semaphore
    Codeship

    When it comes to continuous Integration services, the choice is hard. There are several solutions available and it looks like the dev scene is very split. We've read and reviewed several solutions and we ended up making the choice between Codeship and Semaphore . Although Semaphore is used by slightly more developers, we've experienced a faster and easy flow using Codeship. Both do integrate Slack and GitHub very well, so this is not a point to set them apart. Both have a complex pricing system that is not that easy to calculate and predict. However, out in the wild, we found Codeship to have a better price point at heavy use.

    Review ofCodeshipCodeship

    Working for a web agency, I have access to many premium services for all parts of the development process which leads to two things when it comes to working on my personal projects at home.

    1: I am more fussy about the quality of tools and services that I use than I was before I went from just messing around with programming to having a developer job.

    2: I really don't want to pay a single fee or any kind of subscription to services as after using them all day at work I find it hard to justify personally paying a premium to use them for a bit of time at home after work.

    However with Code ship neither of these things caused any issues as I found it to be very high quality and free.

    On the subject of it being free, I know there are other CI solutions that are free however if you wish to use it with a private repository then unless you already have private Github repos then the fact that Code Ship integrates with Bitbucket can be extremely convenient as it means you can set up your personal projects with free private repository and a free CI / testing solution for absolutely free.

    Overall Codeship has really impressed me in every way from its pricing to its clean and simple UI and its ease of use.

    Review ofCodeshipCodeship

    Setting up continuous integration is complex and time consuming. I've used Codeship for 1 year now and I would never go back to previous systems such as self hosted Jenkins for any kind of web applications. The ability to change developer access on a per repository basis with the click of a button is very helpful and integration with all our services such as Github and Heroku make testing and deployment happen in the background so we can concentrate on our application and not worry about what state the live code is in. We also find the Slack integration (and flowdock before that) to be a great way to share the current code status with the whole team without getting spammed with emails on each commit and build state change while testing prototype branches or working on pull-requests.

    Review ofCodeshipCodeship

    Like most developers I'd love it if my deployment processes were always the same for every project so I never had to think about deployment. However, that's probably never going to happen unless we stop having clients. Codeship allows me to organize all of my deployments into one place and set them up once so that I don't have to remember the process for every nuance of every client.

    Whether it's deploying a Drupal or Wordpress site to a private server, a Meteor.js app to Modulus, or just about anything else Codeship gives me the flexibility of writing my own shell scripts for custom jobs (private server) but also one-click solutions for common problems (deployment to Modulus).

    Highly recommend them!

    Review ofCodeshipCodeship

    It's not easy to differentiate a CI/CD service because integrations matter so much more than the service itself. Didn't even need to read any docs, it just works exactly as you expect it to.

    Pros:

    • Pipelines for running tests in parallel (freemium).
    • Easiest setup of any CI service I've tried.
    • Mandatory build status image service.

    Cons:

    • Test runners are alright, but not that powerful. Py.test can run tests in parallel on its own, but enabling that feature doesn't seem to speed up Codeship runs.
    • Doesn't detect tox environments, so you have to specify one environment per pipeline manually.

    Review ofCodeshipCodeship

    I spent half a day grepping CodeShip and now I have a sweet deployment process for WP sites. After a month of wrestling with Bamboo I decided to give CodeShip a try thanks to an article by CodeShip's Roman Kuba about deploying WP sites

    I am now killin' WP development with my CodeShip + WPEngine setup. This is also making WP development/deployment fun for the first time. CodeShip f*cking rocks.

    Review ofTravis CITravis CI

    In the past we used to run Jenkins. The build server always had weird issues and was a pain to maintain. Travis is a great solution for CI. Their Debug build features makes it trivial to figure out why your build broke. The integration with Github is also very slick. One thing they could improve is the documentation on the .travis.yaml format. All in all, great company and very responsive supports. Over here at getstream.io we're a fan. Keep up the good work guys!

    Travis CI is our pillar for automated deployment, pull request testing, auto-merging (for non-mission-critical projects), and build testing per commit / release.

    It is highly configurable, super cheap, and extremely robust (supports every language and configuration we've thrown at it).

    All of our pull requests are automatically tested using Jenkins' integration with GitHub, and we provision and deploy our servers using Jenkins' interface. This is integrated with HipChat, immediately notifying us if anything goes wrong with a deployment.

    Jenkins is our go-to devops automation tool. We use it for automated test builds, all the way up to server updates and deploys. It really helps maintain our homegrown continuous-integration suite. It even does our blue/green deploys.

    While we usually run tests before commits, Travis goes further and tests with different Python versions and different database backends. It works great, and, best of all, it is free for open source projects.

    Currently serves as the location that our QA team builds various automated testing jobs.

    At one point we were using it for builds, but we ended up migrating away from them to Code Pipelines.

    We use this as a CI tool when working on our API and related tools. The setup is relatively painless and it hooks directly into our Github repo's to provide reports and feedback.

    Travis CI builds and tests every commit. It's also used to deploy Buildtime Trend as a Service to Heroku and the Buildtime Trend Python library to the PyPi repository.

    Travis CI is critical for Linux and macOS CI tests for the Powershell module. Travis runs the same tests we run in AppVeyor in parallel.

    Runs a full test suite whenever we push changes to master and if everything is good, automatically deploys our changes to production.
