Easy CI/CD for Vue developers

Buddy is everything you need to build, stage and deploy Vue.js like a DevOps pro

How Buddy works

  • Build

    Build apps with pure Vue.js or frameworks like Nuxt and Gridsome. Cache dependencies in build containers for better performance.

  • Test

    Run units tests and detect code violations with ESLint. Optimize performance with integration and E2E tests.

  • Stage

    Preview websites directly from Git with a couple of clicks using Buddy Sandboxes. Run visual tests and compare versions before the release.

  • Deploy

    Upload your app to AWS, DigitalOcean, Firebase, SFTP, or any other cloud or bare-metal server.

  • Monitor

    Monitor post-deployment performance with Lighthouse. Survey your website for bugs with Sentry and Bugsnag.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I deploy front-end and back-end at the same time?

    Yes, Buddy supports concurrency allowing you to run pipelines and actions in parallel.
  • Can I preview PR changes before the deployment?

    Yes, you can do that with the Sandboxes, the dynamically created staging environments. Sandboxes allow you to serve your application from the chosen branch, tag, or PR on isolated VMs configured in a couple of clicks.
  • Can I deploy app with SSR (Server Side Rendering)?

    Yes, you can deploy static apps to any CDN or hosting provider. You can also deploy apps with SSR to 3rd-party services like DigitalOcean or Vultr, or run nuxt build && nuxt start on the server over SSH.
  • 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. It allows you to easily build upon existing infrastructure without disrupting your workflow.
