CircleCI Software


 

CircleCI helps users automate the software development process using continuous integration and delivery. The tool builds software using custom job orchestration with workflows.

CircleCI can be configured to deploy code to various environments including AWS CodeDeploy, AWS EC2 Container Service (ECS), AWS S3, Google Container Engine (GKE) and Heroku. Other cloud service deployments are scripted using SSH or by installing the API client.

CircleCI supports languages that are built on Linux, C++, Javascript, .NET, PHP, Python and Ruby. Users can speed up the app-building process with expanded caching options including images, source codes, dependencies and custom caches. Automated provisioning allows parallel execution of programs resulting in less downtime waiting for a workflow to complete.

CircleCI dashboard enables users to see all their builds on a single screen. It integrates with third party applications such as Slack, HipChat, Campfire, Flowdock and IRC. Pricing is per month. Support is provided via online forum and email.

Pros

It helps me to analyze all build quickly in real time. It is pretty simple to configure, setup and use. It has a pretty good integration with various remote repositories and it can run tests and give you results.

Cons

The learning curve is steep for some developers. It has two versions of the software, which sometimes makes it difficult to manage.

Pros

CircleCI is easy to configure and supports integration with majority of tools and services. It have a very nice user interface and allow us to access our build so that it helps and saves time in debugging.

Cons

Although it saves time in many other thing but we have no control on how much cpu time and resources it will consume. It also lacks a lit bit in performance and is slow compare to others.

Robust, easy to use, great documentation, great feature set even on a free plan with sizable 1,500 build minutes per month (quite a lot for smaller projects).

Cons

As you grow, cost rises quite rapidly as well, especially if you require multiple containers run in parallel.

Compared to some other build systems such as Jenkins, CircleCI has a much better, more modern UI. It's easy to do the most common tasks, such as check on a failed build, or restart a build.

Cons

Some setup tasks involved in creating a build or modifying its configuration could be easier, but this was never a hindrance to me using the app.

- Is integrated with several tools like slack
- Configure a project is simple and quick, and most of the cases once you have done this, you will not need to log in into the platform. You will have build going in a couple of hours.
- I have it running in several project and works really well.

Cons

- Pricing could be a little bit better I guess or have a better free plan for beginners, I don't think any cons of using CircleCI actually.

it Does not cache docker images. Docker is way outdated on the VM provided. Other than that i don't find any problem with it. I think it is best

No .NET support. By not having windows support there are projects that cannot leverage CircleCI and must move to an alternative.

Pros

CircleCI is very easy to use and is an excellent tool for general CI / CD. It integrates well with GitHub, runs your tests and gives you the ability to deploy when your tests succeed on a particular branch. CircleCI is great for any software development organization with a large or complex set of automated tests, especially with cloud services for most development processes. This is an excellent service with a good support and large community.

Cons

It would be nice to indicate different versions of PHP for testing and setting parameters for each. Thus, we can test our current production version, which must pass before deployment, and also test a new version of PHP, if we plan to go to it.

Pros

The big plus is that this software works well with all the tools that modern developers use. The workflow script and the ability to run various test suites, or test types in one repository are fantastic. I like a lot of options to improve the configuration. Also great is that there is fast email support. Using CircleCI allows us to focus on our application development. It helps us to commit a simple config file to Git that controls the way that our software gets deployed.

Cons

What I like least about CircleCI is the slow learning curve for some programmers so that they can create the build and deployment script themselves. Lack of tools for really large projects.

Pros

At my mind, the main goal to which need to aspire every businessman is automatization of his business. To do that you need CircleCI. This tool helps me and my partner significantly normalize the development process and gave us more free time for our hobbies. The business problem that we solved with the software is the exact problem that I mentioned before. It is automatization, maybe I talk about it too much but it is justified. We tried to automatize our business by hiring some new employees but unfortunately, it was not as effective as CircleCI.

Cons

I don’t really like the idea of two versions of the software. In case of CircleCI, it is actually realized quite great and I can get used to it. But, this program exists to automatize the processes and make life easier and the fact of existing of two different versions is contradicted to this.

Each time CircleCI prepares your assembly for work, automatically compiles, automatically tests it. The excellent user interface, you always see only the necessary information. We started with the free version and now when our project started to generate profits we are going to buy the full version.

Cons

It would be nice to be able to support the assembly matrix as in Travis. We need this to compare the old and new build of our service.

Pros

With this wonderful program, we can increase productivity. The user interface and integration are very simple. Excellent price and free level. The simplicity of configuration is unrivaled. We use the platform for new projects on the first day. If something is unclear, the support service reacts very well, you can quickly contact them and discuss everything. This program is great for our continuous integration and delivery of our mobile applications. The platform is an important tool for improving the quality of our products. We use the program to perform all quality checks, create and deploy infrastructure around the world.

Cons

My biggest problem is that the platform is running slowly and clumsily from screen to screen. The versatility of the platform can be a bit overwhelming, and this sometimes affects usability: some settings are hard to find.

Integration with IOs allow us to build and test the mobile apps and automatize our whole CI/CD pipeline

Pros

Sine the release of circleci v2.0 using containers as the main advantage using circle has become much simpler and powerfull. Their integration with IOs its a powerup in front of other CI/CD platforms

Cons

The ui really needs to cleanup a bit, make it simpler. Also their need to provide more integrations with third party tools

Great UI, easy to setup, easy to manage. All integrations "just work", we use Slack notifications, webhooks for triggering build, and even those sweet browser notifications when we need to make sure that the build is successful. Impressive Docker support.

Cons

Circle 2.0 offers improved customizability, added more features, but for small and simple projects it's not as easy to setup anymore.

Easy to work with and I recommend you try one CI application. Even if its just for running code test automatically, or even it may make your developer start writing tests for their code.

Pros

Fully integrated with docker and because everything is moving to containers (or should be for scalability) this is huge for us. Tests can run automatically after pushing commits help identify problems before our clients would find them. The earlier you find a bug the cheaper its costs you in the end.

it can take a couple of minutes just to deploy minor changes sometimes.
