Codeship vs Mercurial: What are the differences?

Codeship: A Continuous Integration Platform in the cloud. 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; Mercurial: A distributed version control system. Mercurial is dedicated to speed and efficiency with a sane user interface. It is written in Python. Mercurial's implementation and data structures are designed to be fast. You can generate diffs between revisions, or jump back in time within seconds.

Codeship and Mercurial are primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" and "Version Control System" tools respectively.

"Simple deployments" is the primary reason why developers consider Codeship over the competitors, whereas "Easy-to-grasp system with nice tools" was stated as the key factor in picking Mercurial.

According to the StackShare community, Codeship has a broader approval, being mentioned in 277 company stacks & 83 developers stacks; compared to Mercurial, which is listed in 26 company stacks and 16 developer stacks.
