Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is Buddy different from other CI/CD tools?

    The main difference is the unique UX that allows you to click up the whole delivery process in the UI instead of manually scripting it. This way, you and everybody on your team can configure and update pipelines in a couple of minutes without assistance from a dedicated DevOps engineer.
  • Does Buddy work with GitLab repositories?

    Yes, you can hook up your existing GitLab repos and use Buddy as a build server and deployment tool without moving your code. The tool also works with GitHub, Bitbucket, and custom Git repositories.
  • Can I deploy to cloud services like AWS or Google Cloud?

    Yes, Buddy integrates with all popular SaaS and PaaS, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, DigitalOcean, Microsoft Azure, or Shopify.
  • Does Buddy support mobile development?

    Yes, Buddy provides full support for Android pipelines as well as the recently added iOS builds.
  • Does Buddy support YAML configuration?

    Yes, all scripting lovers can configure the process top to bottom as code by following our pipeline building schema. Alternatively, you can set up the pipelines in the GUI and save the configuration as code for safekeeping in the repository.
  • Can I install Buddy on my own server?

    Yes, Buddy can be installed on any server that supports Docker and docker-compose. The on-premises version comes with a 30-day trial that you can use to set up and test the service.
