  • I prefer configuration-as-code. Does Buddy support that?

    Yes. The UI is fully optional and you can stick to code configuration from the very beginning if you wish. Everything is covered in the documentation. Secondly, you can configure the pipeline in the UI and automatically export your settings to YAML to save time. Lastly, you can switch between both modes in a click, so the decision is never fixed.
