"It was easier, and faster to migrate all our builds to Buddy than it was to set up a single new build on CircleCI. They have a phenomenal UI, where I can manually trigger builds. Their Docker and caching integration is first class, and builds are insanely fast. There is no minute waiting time if I want to use Docker builds."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can Buddy improve team management and security?

    Buddy has a multiple tools that can help you with that. Trigger conditions can be used to determine exactly when a pipeline or action can be executed. You can also use permission settings to control access levels for every team member.
  • Does Buddy support Docker on the free plan?

    Yes, Buddy offers a full Docker support for all plans, including the free tier.
  • What effect does Docker layer caching have on my builds?

    Whenever a layer is built, Docker will use its cached version for as long as nothing has changed. This solution greatly improves build speed.
  • Can you use YAML configuration in Buddy?

    Yes, Buddy supports both GUI and YAML configuration. You can create a pipeline in the GUI, export it to YAML, and keep it in version control to track progress in your project. Or you can design the whole delivery process in code, just like you did with Jenkins.
  • Is Buddy free to use?

    Buddy offers a free tier with 1 seat, unlimited projects, and 300 pipeline GB-minutes. You can upgrade to a higher plan to increase the GB-limit and activate additional features at any time.
