Concourse vs GoCD: What are the differences?
What is Concourse? Pipeline-based CI system written in Go. Concourse's principles reduce the risk of switching to and from Concourse, by encouraging practices that decouple your project from your CI's little details, and keeping all configuration in declarative files that can be checked into version control.
What is 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.
Concourse and GoCD belong to "Continuous Integration" category of the tech stack.
"Real pipelines" is the top reason why over 8 developers like Concourse, while over 29 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing GoCD.
Concourse and GoCD are both open source tools. GoCD with 5.07K GitHub stars and 796 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Concourse with 4.12K GitHub stars and 496 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, GoCD has a broader approval, being mentioned in 40 company stacks & 78 developers stacks; compared to Concourse, which is listed in 28 company stacks and 90 developer stacks.
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.
Google cloud build can help you. It is hosted on cloud and also provide reasonable free quota.
I'm planning to setup complete CD-CD setup for spark and python application which we are going to deploy in aws lambda and EMR Cluster. Which tool would be best one to choose. Since my company is trying to adopt to concourse i would like to understand what are the lack of capabilities concourse have . Thanks in advance !
I would definetly recommend Concourse to you, as it is one of the most advanced modern methods of making CI/CD while Jenkins is an old monolithic dinosaur. Concourse itself is cloudnative and containerbased which helps you to build simple, high-performance and scalable CI/CD pipelines. In my opinion, the only lack of skills you have with Concourse is your own knowledge of how to build pipelines and automate things. Technincally there is no lack, i would even say you can extend it way more easily. But as a Con it is more easy to interact with Jenkins if you are only used to UIs. Concourse needs someone which is capable of using CLIs.
