Jenkins vs Strider: What are the differences?
Jenkins and Strider belong to "Continuous Integration" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Jenkins are:
- Easy installation
- Easy configuration
- Change set support
On the other hand, Strider provides the following key features:
- add hooks to perform arbitrary actions during build.
- modify the database schema to add custom fields.
- register their own HTTP routes.
"Hosted internally" is the primary reason why developers consider Jenkins over the competitors, whereas "Free Open Source" was stated as the key factor in picking Strider.
Jenkins and Strider are both open source tools. It seems that Jenkins with 13.2K GitHub stars and 5.43K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Strider with 4.32K GitHub stars and 434 GitHub forks.

All of our pull requests are automatically tested using Jenkins' integration with GitHub, and we provision and deploy our servers using Jenkins' interface. This is integrated with HipChat, immediately notifying us if anything goes wrong with a deployment.
Jenkins is our go-to devops automation tool. We use it for automated test builds, all the way up to server updates and deploys. It really helps maintain our homegrown continuous-integration suite. It even does our blue/green deploys.
- Continuous Deploy
- Dev stage: autodeploy by trigger push request from 'develop' branch of Gitlab
- Staging and production stages: Build and rollback quicly with Ansistrano playbook
- Sending messages of job results to Chatwork.
Currently serves as the location that our QA team builds various automated testing jobs.
At one point we were using it for builds, but we ended up migrating away from them to Code Pipelines.
