Mina vs Shipit: What are the differences?
What is Mina? Really fast deployer and server automation tool. Mina works really fast because it's a deploy Bash script generator. It generates an entire procedure as a Bash script and runs it remotely in the server. Compare this to the likes of Vlad or Capistrano, where each command is run separately on their own SSH sessions. Mina only creates one SSH session per deploy, minimizing the SSH connection overhead.
Mina and Shipit belong to "Server Configuration and Automation" category of the tech stack.
Mina and Shipit are both open source tools. Shipit with 4.71K GitHub stars and 199 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Mina with 4.05K GitHub stars and 453 GitHub forks.
