Coveralls vs GitHub Enterprise: What are the differences?

Coveralls: Track your project's code coverage over time, changes to files, and badge your GitHub repo. Coveralls works with your CI server and sifts through your coverage data to find issues you didn't even know you had before they become a problem. Free for open source, pro accounts for private repos, instant sign up with GitHub OAuth; GitHub Enterprise: The on-premises version of GitHub, which you can deploy and manage in your own, secure environment. GitHub Enterprise lets developers use the tools they love across the development process with support for popular IDEs, continuous integration tools, and hundreds of third party apps and services.

Coveralls and GitHub Enterprise are primarily classified as "Code Coverage" and "Code Collaboration & Version Control" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Coveralls are:

  • Repository Coverage Statistics
  • Individual File Coverage Reports
  • Line By Line Coverage

On the other hand, GitHub Enterprise provides the following key features:

  • Compliance and auditing
  • Hundreds of integrations
  • Flexible deployment

According to the StackShare community, Coveralls has a broader approval, being mentioned in 58 company stacks & 45 developers stacks; compared to GitHub Enterprise, which is listed in 38 company stacks and 46 developer stacks.

      We use Codecov because it's a lot better than Coveralls. Both of them provide the useful feature of having nice web-accessible reports of which files have what level of test coverage (though every coverage tool produces reasonably nice HTML in a directory on the local filesystem), and can report on PRs cases where significant new code was added without test coverage.

      That said, I'm pretty unhappy with both of them for our use case. The fundamental problem with both of them is that they don't handle the ~1% probability situations with missing data due to networking flakiness well. The reason I think our use case is relevant is that we submit coverage data from multiple jobs (one that runs our frontend test suite and another that runs our backend test suite), and the coverage provider is responsible for combining that data together.

      I think the problem is if a test suite runs successfully but due to some operational/networking error between Travis/CircleCI and Codecov the coverage data for part of the codebase doesn't get submitted, Codecov will report a huge coverage drop in a way that is very confusing for our contributors (because they experience it as "why did the coverage drop 12%, all I did was added a test").

      We migrated from Coveralls to Codecov because empirically this sort of breakage happened 10x less on Codecov, but it still happens way more often than I'd like.

      I wish they put more effort in their retry mechanism and/or providing clearer debugging information (E.g. a big "Missing data" banner) so that one didn't need to be specifically told to ignore Codecov/Coveralls when it reports a giant coverage drop.

      Since its fully open source alternative is free, GitHub Enterprise became a very hard sell as it also lacks lots of features.
