Small startups have found Buddy invaluable as it allows them to set up complex CI/CD pipelines without wasting time. Users also appreciate the software's customization options, which make it easy to manage different client projects with varying deployment needs. Additionally, the ability to integrate testing and multiple deployments in a single pipeline has saved users tangible time in their workweek. Overall, Buddy has become a go-to tool for automating deployment processes, streamlining workflows, and improving development efficiency.

It is used in our organisation to provide a central repository for a series of development projects. Since its power lies beneath existing versioning technology such as GIT and SVN all our projects are maintained under source control. Moreover, the deploying functionalities help us deploy project changes to different environments (dev, uat, prod) with ease.
  • Easy of use - clear user interface
  • Fast deployment to all environments
  • Great combination of source control and project management
  • We would love to have a more flexible management for resources (users, storage)
  • More advanced web hooks would be a plus
Springloops is the best tool for deployment to any environment. Especially, the auto-deployment feature on development servers is essential for the early stages of development. The built-in source control mechanisms are a perfect combination of ease of use and a rich feature set that allows the development team to have an easier and more complete view of each part of the project. A section that is lacking is time tracking - but then this is not the main usage of the service.
  • A total time saver - just commit changes and Springloops can handle the deployments
  • Total control of source code and commits - you never have to think about those things again
Springloops has a built-in feature that is lacking from Bitbucket (at least on the out-of-the-box functionality). Deployment of projects to various servers/development stages. The process is so easy and painless that even remote servers can act as local environments. This is a feature that differentiates Springloops from other solutions that require other tools to perform the same task.
Our development team uses Springloops as the main code repository for our web development projects. By using SVN or GIT source control we maintain our code on a single central system. The code can be accessed from anywhere and the team keeps track of all changes throughout the development cycle. Moreover, the team can review our code online for changes and updates.
Front-end developers, back-end developers, mobile developers use Springloops on a daily bases to maintain their code. Springloops is a straightforward tool to use. Most of the work is done outside Springloops using tools such as Tortoise or SourceTree. So, basic knowledge of those tools can help developers use in essence Springloops. Then within Springloops, everything is simple as using a common web browser. The UI is straightforward and easy to use - making it an ideal environment to maintain and update our code base.
  • Maintaining the code base for all our projects
  • Deploy code on all environments - dev, pre-prod, prod
  • Source control either using GIT or SVN
  • Bug tracking and fixing
  • Time tracking
  • Extensive use of commit commands that provide guidance to Springloops for executing commands
  • Use of webhooks to perform automated actions when deployments/commits are made
  • Extensive use of time tracking
  • Solely use the project management features - and stop using other tools
Apart from being a great versioning control system Springloops offers the options to automatically deploy code to multiple systems. This feature alone is a determining factor to renew Springloops over and over again. Another important factor is that it offers a full set of tools that help the team during the development cycle. No switching between time-tracking to project management. This is a real time-saver.

  • Product Usability
The ability to deploy code directly to any server related to the project. The option to auto-deploy to staging or development environments is a real time saver for all members of the team. No additional time is needed to use other tools to deploy our code. No more hand picking file - just commit and everything is done by Springloops.
I would not change anything. Springloops is a must-have tool for our organization. The overall approach and implementation So, it helps us do out work faster than before. After started using the tool we never went back or had second thoughts. It really helps us achieve more and improves our day-to-day processes.
I rarely use it but when I need it the team is there. During the initial steps of Springloops, I had close contact with one of the founders. He provided support to me over Skype! He didn't have to but he did. We had a couple of long talks about some issues I was facing. He has there regardless of time. It was a great experience!
One of the founders helped me over Skype on an issue I was having. The founder, not some support guy. He was available and we talked about my issue and he helped me resolve it. This is what I call 100% satisfaction and feeling that you have someone watching you at all times.
  • Deployment to servers
  • Source preview and browsing
  • Messaging within the team
  • Comments on commits
  • Rarely deployments get stuck - but it's only some sort of glitch of the interface
Yes, but I don't use it
Easy to use, automatic deployments, comments on projects are only a few factors. Multiple servers per project is another must-have feature. User permissions and rights offer granular control on access to the system.
