TeamCity vs Xcode: What are the differences?

What is TeamCity? TeamCity is an ultimate Continuous Integration tool for professionals. TeamCity is a user-friendly continuous integration (CI) server for professional developers, build engineers, and DevOps. It is trivial to setup and absolutely free for small teams and open source projects.

What is Xcode? The complete toolset for building great apps. The Xcode IDE is at the center of the Apple development experience. Tightly integrated with the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, Xcode is an incredibly productive environment for building amazing apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

TeamCity belongs to "Continuous Integration" category of the tech stack, while Xcode can be primarily classified under "Integrated Development Environment".

Some of the features offered by TeamCity are:

  • Automate code analyzing, compiling, and testing processes, with having instant feedback on build progress, problems, and test failures, all in a simple, intuitive web-interface
  • Simplified setup: create projects from just a VCS repository URL
  • Run multiple builds and tests under different configurations and platforms simultaneously

On the other hand, Xcode provides the following key features:

  • Source Editor
  • Assistant Editor
  • Asset Catalog

"Easy to configure" is the top reason why over 52 developers like TeamCity, while over 127 developers mention "IOS Development" as the leading cause for choosing Xcode.

Pinterest, Instacart, and Lyft are some of the popular companies that use Xcode, whereas TeamCity is used by Stack Exchange, ebay, and Apple. Xcode has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1051 company stacks & 603 developers stacks; compared to TeamCity, which is listed in 171 company stacks and 51 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to TeamCity and Xcode?
Jenkins
In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
Appveyor
AppVeyor aims to give powerful Continuous Integration and Deployment tools to every .NET developer without the hassle of setting up and maintaining their own build server.
Hudson
It monitors the execution of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron. Among those things, currently it focuses on the two jobs
Octopus Deploy
Octopus works with your build server to enable reliable, secure, automated releases of ASP.NET applications and Windows Services into test, staging and production environments, whether they are in the cloud or on-premises.
FinalBuilder
With FinalBuilder you don't need to edit xml, or write scripts. Visually define and debug your build scripts, then schedule them with windows scheduler, or integrate them with Continua CI, Jenkins or any other CI Server.

How developers use TeamCity and Xcode

TeamCity is our main continuous integration server. It starts creating builds and running tests based on commits that we make in our hosted bitbucket repositories. From there, we have a set of configuraitons that can deploy the built and tested artifacts (web app, batches, db, etc...) to a stage or production server. We still release manually, but we release often, and TeamCity has nice features to help us roll back when things don't work out as planned.

TeamCity builds then copies to each web tier via a powershell script. The steps for each server are:

  • Tell HAProxy to take the server out of rotation via a POST
  • Delay to let IIS finish current requests (~5 sec)
  • Stop the website (via the same PSSession for all the following)
  • Robocopy files
  • Start the website
  • Re-enable in HAProxy via another POST

Even though React Native takes care of most of the heavy lifting, there are still some cases where we need xcode. These cases include app icon integration, mobile deployments, loading screens, ect...

Xcode is our primary development platform for iOS applications, with a very fully featured set of dev tools for the platform. For everything else, there's Sublime Text 3.
