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.

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.
