Frequently Asked Questions
How can Buddy improve the speed of my builds?
Buddy’s deployments are based on changesets. Usually, resources such as repository files, dependencies, artifacts, Docker images, and layers are downloaded and/or generated on every execution – in Buddy, those components are cached, which greatly improves build times.
Which React tasks can I automate with Buddy?
Thanks to our predefined actions, you can easily automate day-to-day developer tasks, such as deployments to FTP/SFTP and cloud services, optimization of assets (minification, bundling, image compression), scripts execution, smoke and end-to-end tests (Cypress.io), or visual tests in the staging environment.
How is Buddy different from other CI/CD tools?
Apart from the deployment speed, Buddy tackles down the few annoyances that you might have encountered with other tools:
1. It has no vendor lock-in and allows you to deploy anywhere.
2. Our pipelines are easy to set up without the need of YAML/TOML scripting.
3. Thanks to our recent Sandbox feature, you can preview your app before deploying it.
Is Buddy free?
Buddy offers a free tier with all the features you can find on the premium plans. The only difference is the amount of resources free accounts have access to.
Can I attach databases to my builds?
Yes, Buddy allows you to add up to five services to your container, including MySQL, MariaDB, Postgres, and Cassandra. You can also create your own service based on a custom Docker image from scratch.
