DotCi vs Semaphore: What are the differences?

What is DotCi? Jenkins plugin with GitHub and Docker integration. DotCi is a Jenkins plugin created by Groupon that makes job management easy with built-in GitHub integration, push-button job creation, and YAML powered build configuration and customization. It comes prepackaged with Docker support as well, which means bootstrapping a new build environment from scratch can take as little as 15 minutes. DotCi has been a critical tool for Groupon internally for managing build and release pipelines for the wide variety of technologies in their SOA landscape.

What is Semaphore? The continuous integration and delivery platform powering the world’s best engineering teams. Semaphore is the fastest continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) platform on the market, powering the world’s best engineering teams.

DotCi and Semaphore can be primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by DotCi are:

  • Deep Integration with Source Control – for us that’s Github Enterprise
  • Integration with Github webhooks
  • Feedback sent to the committer or pusher via Email, Hipchat, Campfire, etc.

On the other hand, Semaphore provides the following key features:

  • Docker, Kubernetes, iOS support & 100+ preinstalled Tools
  • Customizable Continuous Delivery Pipelines
  • Customizable Stages, Parallel Execution and Control Flow Switches

DotCi is an open source tool with 505 GitHub stars and 65 GitHub forks. Here's a link to DotCi's open source repository on GitHub.

        What are some alternatives to DotCi and Semaphore?
        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.
        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.
        CircleCI
        Continuous integration and delivery platform helps software teams rapidly release code with confidence by automating the build, test, and deploy process. Offers a modern software development platform that lets teams ramp.
        GitLab CI
        GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.
        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.

        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.
