It is painful when tooling used to integrate with VCS doesn’t support some of these. E.g. the Jenkins gitlab plugin was bug ridden for ages and had lots of missing features compared to the GitHub plugin.

people don’t realize how important those integrations are, they just see the source code, not the whole pipeline

I don’t. I want to though. But then I’m up in the air between trying Concourse or Drone. I do like the visuals: https://ci.concourse-ci.org/

But then at the end of the day.. I’ll just fall back to a hosted service whenever possible

@rms1000watt We currently use Drone.io and are looking into Concourse and to move that route so it’s very interesting that you brought up both those products

Matthew avatar
Matthew

I like the look and feel of concourse and it’s much more explicit than Drone is but it requires some interesting configurations in order to just get hooked up with GitHub webhooks and Drone will configure fresh with GitHub out of the box

rms1000watt avatar
rms1000watt

what makes you want to move off drone?

Matthew avatar
Matthew

Lack of support, i’m trying to move our images off DockerHub onto ECR and their plugin for uploading ECR images is broken.. Don’t really want to dive into creating that plugin either, they are raising their prices and one day they changed our license key without telling us and nothing worked for 4 hours in a live production environment so just some things like that

Matthew avatar
Matthew

I’ve reached out to Brad at Drone and their support channel 5x now over the duration of 1 month and haven’t got a response on updating the CC they have on file so it’s had it’s challenges

Matthew avatar
Matthew

Drone is beneficial in the fact it’s easy setup, non-technical easy to read pipeline as well as their global secrets but requires the enterprise edition for that

dustinvb avatar
dustinvb

At Codefresh, we auto-create your GitHub webhook when you select your repository from a list and can filter on events (commit, pull request, release), branches, modified files to determine which pipelines you’d like to run based on the webhook’s payload.

We can use either your auth or a configured service account to connect to GitHub.

In regards to ECR we support this both as a registry provider to push and pull from also we can use some native steps like https://github.com/codefresh-contrib/cfstep-paclair to invoke clair scans on your ECR stored Docker images.
