GitLab CI vs Travis CI: What are the differences?
Developers describe GitLab CI as "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. On the other hand, Travis CI is detailed as "A hosted continuous integration service for open source and private projects". 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.
GitLab CI and Travis CI can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.
"Robust CI with awesome Docker support" is the primary reason why developers consider GitLab CI over the competitors, whereas "Github integration" was stated as the key factor in picking Travis CI.
Lyft, Heroku, and MIT are some of the popular companies that use Travis CI, whereas GitLab CI is used by WebbyLab, Infoxchange, and Dial Once. Travis CI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 670 company stacks & 624 developers stacks; compared to GitLab CI, which is listed in 210 company stacks and 93 developer stacks.
