GitLab CI vs Heroku CI: What are the differences?

What is GitLab CI? GitLab integrated CI to test, build and deploy your code. 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.

What is Heroku CI? Fast, low-setup CI that’s easy to use. On every push to GitHub, Heroku CI runs your tests in a disposable Heroku app, so there’s never a wait time for a free CI worker. Tests run fast, on Performance dynos.

GitLab CI and Heroku CI can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.

According to the StackShare community, GitLab CI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 210 company stacks & 93 developers stacks; compared to Heroku CI, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
