DeployBot vs Jenkins: What are the differences?
What is DeployBot? Instantly deploy from Github, Bitbucket, or Gitlab without complex scripts, commands or configs. DeployBot makes it simple to deploy your work anywhere. You can compile or process your code in a Docker container on our infrastructure, and we'll copy it to your servers once everything has been successfully built.
What is Jenkins? An extendable open source continuous integration server. 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.
DeployBot can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Deployment" category, while Jenkins is grouped under "Continuous Integration".
Some of the features offered by DeployBot are:
- Manually deploy with a click in the app, automatically deploy on each push, or use deploy tags in a commit [deploy:production].
- DeployBot gathers new and changed files from your repositories since the last deployment. You can even preview the changes first.
- Files are uploaded, SSH commands are executed and deployment hooks are triggered. Everything is logged for you.
On the other hand, Jenkins provides the following key features:
- Easy installation
- Easy configuration
- Change set support
"Easy setup" is the primary reason why developers consider DeployBot over the competitors, whereas "Hosted internally" was stated as the key factor in picking Jenkins.
