DotCi vs Testling: 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 Testling? Automatic browser tests on every push. Sign in with your browserling account. free for open source. No sign-up required. Just configure a github webhook.
DotCi and Testling belong to "Continuous Integration" category of the tech stack.
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, Testling provides the following key features:
- Write tests with a minimal test api that works in both node and browsers.
- Run your tests in node and your local browsers.
- Run tests in mocha for qunit, tdd, bdd, and exports-style tests.
DotCi and Testling are both open source tools. It seems that DotCi with 505 GitHub stars and 65 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Testling with 337 GitHub stars and 47 GitHub forks.
