Jenkins

Jenkins helps the flow of build from the development team to the QA team. Can be really helpful in doing continuous builds, but when this feature is turned on the development team must have great communication otherwise the risk of broken builds become very high. In the long run, we found it made things easier when we just pushed the build manually and appointed a team member the build master.

Travis CI

If your company embraces open source and uses a lot of the workflows that are prevalent in startups, Travis CI is indispensable. It comes with a lot of tools that thrive in that ecosystem. It probably won't be appreciated by companies that are traditionally more closed where everything is behind a firewall.

Pros

Jenkins

  • Automatic jobs: there are infinite possibilities when it comes to Jenkins. You can run code against any testing suite you can imagine or conjure up. You can deploy applications at any time anywhere, automatically with no human intervention. If a certain stage fails, it will notify the team and your sysadmin of the issue so you can resolve it as quickly as possible
  • Automatic rollback: because of how Jenkins works, it can hold off publishing code and integrate locally to run QA procedures before pushing to deployment. This means that bugs are caught before your servers are updated and prevents a faulty program from affecting your downtime in the first place. Its a game changer for high availability.

Travis CI

  • It is very simple to configure a range of environment versions and settings in a simple YAML file.
  • It integrates very well with Github, Bitbucket, or a private Git repo.
  • The Travis CI portal beautifully shows you your history and console logs. Everything is presented in a very clear and intuitive interface.

Cons

Jenkins

  • Once we organized a hackathon with our GitHub Storage. Jenkins was integrated at that time. We had a 20GB plan, but it oversized to 50GB. We had to bear a large sum of money which was unpredicted by our company. Being a startup we cannot bear such mistakes.
  • Jenkins cannot be easily studied and managed. We have to recruit personnel part-time for managing and servicing the server.
  • Though it is open source, there is no dedicated community driven forum or support. There are 3rd party discussion and support portals. Thus, we use Gitter always for debugging and solutions.

Travis CI

  • I think they could have a cheaper personal plan. I'd love to use Travis on personal projects, but I don't want to publish them nor I can pay $69 a month for personal projects that I don't want to be open source.
  • There is no interface for configuring repos on Travis CI, you have to do it via a file in the repo. This make configuration very flexible, but also makes it harder for simpler projects and for small tweaks in the configuration.

While the day to day use is very easy, the configuration and setting up of the system or new projects can be cumbersome.

TravisCI hasn't had much changes made to its software and has thus fallen behind compared to many other CI/CD applications out there. I can only give it a 5 because it does what it is supposed to do but lacks product innovation.

Sometimes I feel like I am using software developed at the '90s. The Jenkins functioning is amazing. It fulfills its role, but when we are talking about the user interface, it is something painful sometimes, and unfortunately, I didn't see investment and/or improvement on this part over the past few years. Another thing I couldn't forget to mention is about the ecosystem around Jenkins, there are a bunch of plugins, but due to this flexibility, we caught ourselves struggling with broken plugins several times.

There is a large development community - but it is shifting as people move towards other tools. A lot of companies still use Jenkins and will build propriety tools, which doesn't help any of the open-source community.Jenkins has a lot of help and support online, but other, more modern, alternatives will have better support for newer tech.

They really need to ramp up on their documentation. Otherwise, Travis CI is really great and they support open source initiatives. Being a proponent of open source, using their service helps them improve their work and keep improving their services. Their tool has helped improve open source software and the free tier makes it a great tool for teams with smaller budgets.

Alternatives Considered

Jenkins

We previously utilized Hudson - which was limited and did not have the extensive plugin abilities of Jenkins. We selected Jenkins for it's ease of use, beautiful interface, and stability. Other software such as Hudson and Bamboo didn't provide these abilities.

Travis CI

Jenkins is much more complicated to configure and start using. Although, one you have done that, it's extremely powerful and full of features. Maybe many more than Travis CI. As per TeamCity, I would never go back to using it. It's also complicated to configure but it is not worth the trouble. Codeship supports integration with GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket. I've only used it briefly, but it seems to be a nice tool.

Return on Investment

Jenkins

  • Low investment: As the software is open source, there is no purchase required for on-premises installations, and there is a low barrier to entry for companies offering hosted solutions. This leads to competition on price, and therefore lower prices.
  • Saves time by automating manual tasks: There are often a lot of repetitive tasks that need to be done to prepare for a release, and Jenkins enables these tasks to be run easily and frequently (for example, running tasks on every pull request)
  • Near-immediate returns: Spend a day or two and easily automate most common tasks. Reports are visible so that managers and team leads can keep an eye on code quality.

Travis CI

  • It's improved my ability to deliver working code, increasing my development velocity.
  • It increases confidence that your own work (and those of external contributors) does not have any obvious bugs, provided you have sufficient test coverage.
  • It helps to ensure consistent standards across a team (you can integrate process elements like "go lint" and other style checks as part of your build).
  • It's zero-cost for public/open source projects, so the only investment is a few minutes setting up a build configuration file (hence the return is very high).
  • The .travis.yml file is a great way for onboarding new developers, since it shows how to bootstrap a build environment and run a build "from scratch".
