    It's simply a superior tool

    I have been using Buddy for 2 years now, and I got say I never have felt more comfortable with a tool. We run 25 projects with over 50 pipelines, integrations, and schedulers. Its integration with Docker makes it years ahead of its competitors.

    Simple to setup and configure.

    Simply the easiest way to get up and running with automated deployments. I've had a few issues with Vultr and the SFTP setup, but I am running an atypical setup.

    ๐Ÿ‘Ž Cons:    Few issues with sftp

    Fast, Simple and Enjoyable

    We started using a few weeks ago. Now we're all in with our production environment. Usign the plugin to change a image in Kubernetes is a breeze.

    Best in the CI/CD market by FAR!

    I started using Buddy since it was called Meat. It has always been so easy to understand and powerful since they have a lot of integrations. I was lucky to get a free license key in the beginning for the on premise installation. Unfortunately their business model has been very oriented to big companies that can afford it and not for freelancers or startups.

    You gotta lova buddy

    I got introduced to buddy by a friend and fell in love instantly! I mean with the new visual regressions and the new features they just set new standards. The pipline debugging and everything. Feels like working locally on my Desktop. I use the payed version at work, and I'm thankful for the free version they have for my little late afternoon projects.

    ๐Ÿ Competitors: GitHub Actions
    ๐Ÿ‘ Pros:    Debugging|Literally every feature|Chosing different version of software, for example node.js version are quickly switched with a select box
    ๐Ÿ‘Ž Cons:    Rare bugs caused by github webhooks (i don't know who to "blame" here)

    Beautiful CI for all needs

    At first, we only used Buddy for our private projects. But now we will migrate our existing application pipelines to Buddy because of the full range of functionality that is available.

    Very nice CI.

    Pretty much the best CI we ever used

    We moved from Jenkins over Teamcity to Buddy, and it's really the best thing I've seen in 8 years of industry experience. With Jenkins, adding a project in a new language or with special environment requirements always meant lots of headache: You had to prepare the server, hope whatever packages you needed to install would not collide with other build requirements, and don't even dare to require two different dependency versions!

    Fast forward to Buddy: I simply set up a new build step in a pipeline with the Docker image I need, full stop. No conflicts, no problems, no manual setup, nothing - all powered by Docker.

    In addition to the awesome base concept, Buddy has a beautiful UI that simply works and doesn't require a thousand plugins or constant updating.
    In the few cases where I needed support, they have always been fast, friendly and helpful.

    Give it a try!
