  • Cicada - Build CI pipelines using TypeScript
    We use at the moment and have been reasonably happy with it, however it only has support for linux containers at the moment, no windows containers. (MacOS doesn't have a containers primitive yet unfortunately). - Source: Reddit / 3 days ago
  • Why I joined Dagger
    My first attempt was Concourse, a CI/CD system that scheduled pipelines written in declarative YAML. Choosing YAML for Concourse made it for all, but it was definitely not once; we had to constantly rework its declarative model to handle more use cases. As time went on I started to wonder if the final frontier was actually a “language for CI/CD.”. - Source: / about 2 months ago
  • Unpopular opinion: CI/CD engines are an awful idea
    I want to shill a bit for Concourse- All the plugins are docker containers that read json on stdin, and write json to stdout. It's pretty neat. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 months ago
  • Best tool for automated and reproducible build?
    Yes, Jenkins is overkill. I utterly hate it. If you want something which you can self-host rather than using a SaaS or web product, Concourse CI is mildly opinionated on some things but generally fairly easy to use. Or Drone CI. There are plenty of tools to select from. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago

    Fossil is super easy to self host, so that what I do (on a MeLE fanless mini PC). But there's if you want a hosted solution. For CI I self host an instance of - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago

    Take a look at Concourse ( It used to be my go-to tool for, as its site says, “continuous thing do-ing”. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago

    So can you suggest one? Till now I looked at the concourse. - Source: / 8 months ago

    For infrastructure changes we use Concourse and Terraform. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • I wrote an article comparing the free versions of Circle CI, Travis CI, Github Actions, and Gitlab
    I am curious if anyone of you already heard about Concourse-Ci? - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Ask HN: Any self hosted CI/CD for mobile apps suggestions?
    I’d you want to run my favorite industrial strength ci system you can look at Gives you the ability to install workers on Mac so you can do iOS builds if you like. Google around for concourse ci iOS for articles. There are multiple ways to deploy concourse but the components are just go binaries when it comes down to it. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Any CI/CD platform to recommend?
    I have tried out Concourse CI but I do not have anything else then enterprise systems (through work) to compare them to. Do you have anything to recommend or anything opinions regarding this? I am mainly looking for the CD part of CI/CD. I may start test git branches in the future, then CI will be good. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

    Has anyone gone down this route so far with Concourse ( I'm getting ready to attempt this on a Fedora 34 system (Podman 3.2.0). - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Slack Engineering: How a Jenkins Job Broke Our Jenkins UI
    What are your requirements? The most recent CI/CD system I've used was Concourse, and using it was great - it's very flexible, if a bit barebones. (I didn't have hand in the initial installation for it, so this is only for using it) - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Slack Engineering: How a Jenkins Job Broke Our Jenkins UI
    Concourse: It takes some getting used to, but I really got to love its concepts for resources/inputs/outputs and how they work together to get you actually reproducible builds. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: Best self-hosted CI solution?
    I am running on a cheap VPC and I am very happy with it. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Jenkins, what's next?
    I've been using Concourse CI for some small projects : - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • How are you using podman/buildah for automated container image builds?
    So my 2 cents here is that CI/CD is the next step. There isn't much an interim between. CI/CD is usually what merges whatever code you want to push with podman commands to build the resulting container. A lot of the clients I deal with are using Jenkins and on the open source side Concourse. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
