“We moved from Jenkins over Teamcity to Buddy, and it's really the best thing I've seen in 8 years of industry experience. With Jenkins, adding a project in a new language or with special environment requirements always meant lots of headache”

As someone who has used Jenkins for many years, Buddy is a breath of fresh air. It's incredibly simple to get started with and have a full CI/CD pipeline running in literally minutes.

This is ridiculously easy to use and build very complex pipelines for CI deployments. It has saved huge amounts of dev-ops time for use and allows for some quite niche commands to run when we trigger deployments.

As an alternative to Jenkins, Buddy is just so much better. It's easy to setup and creating pipelines is really smooth. The UI is beautiful and fast! I'm never going back to Jenkins!
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Buddy come with a free plan?
Why should I pay for Buddy when Jenkins is free?
In short: to ship more software faster without involving a team of DevOps engineers to configure and maintain the process. A single delivery pipeline can take up to 9-10 hours to set up by a dedicated engineer, which directly adds to the costs.
In Buddy, any developer can create a complete process in 15 minutes, including build preparation, deployment, and system notifications. The dev environment remains the same for everybody on the team, doing away with it-works-for-me compatibility errors. Builds are cached and insanely fast. Only changed files are deployed – no need to deploy the entire repo every time.
Yes, Jenkins is free – but how much money do you lose because of the issues it creates?
