Open source CI.
What we like
Self-hosted. Each step is isolated and runs as a container. Define the commands in a config file in your repo with any Docker image as the context. Uses a persistently mounted volume to pass input/output files through the steps. Flexible conditional execution, supports matrix builds, services e.g. databases. Backed by SQLite by default.
What we don't like
Limited pre-built images and plugins - smaller ecosystem than GitHub Actions, for example. Self-hosting is the point, but it does mean you have to run and manage everything yourself.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
✦ Disclosure: All reviews are editorially independent and partners must meet our selection criteria.
