@Gabe if you use it, Jira can generate a changelog once you’ve made a release on your project

do you guys use any tools to automatically generate change logs?

explored it briefly, but didn’t end up doing anything

maybe it would be a nice github action

Gabe avatar

have you guys been added to the beta yet? we signed up but are still in the queue waiting for them to activate

Gabe avatar

i’ve found some js tools but was curious if you had some that use go/python

If you could bring your own PaaS to that - ECS etc. then it would be very compelling. I feel lots of companies underestimate how hard it is to manage the orchestration of a high volume container platform with a varied array of tasks being run on top of it. Look at the CircleCI status page for an example.

An outage to a build pipeline is a blocker that wastes quite a bit of money if a company is pushing at a reasonable velocity.

not an orchestrator, but easy to use for deployments

Interesting - have you found much overhead compare to using a managed CI service? Also I suppose you lose support for the pipelines as code pattern with this? i.e. no build manifest.yml/json ?

yea, the fargate cli not a complete e2e alternative

Good to see alternatives exist

Well - good to hear honest people talking about using alternatives

Have had a pretty good experience with Circle - only a few limitations bug me

the story is that that the fargate cli was written by an engineer at AWS to show the ECS team what kind of cli tool users want

to make it as easy as using heroku

so far, aws hasn’t taken him up on the suggestion!

Interesting! Didn’t see GitHub going in this direction

CI/CD is the biggest commercial vertical in the GitHub ecosystem
