It is an awesome solution for continuous deployments. Quite good and a intuitive! But it is somehow expensive for a single developer. They had a free solution for a self-hosted instance but no 175$. Too much. And you have to pay the server so it is about 200$/m. Does not worth it. Hope some day they will think in lonely developers.

I’ve tried to set up CD, but ended up quitting because I got so frustrated with how difficult it was to figure out.
Buddy was the first one I was actually able to get something working with.

Buddy's UI is the most intuitive of any CI/CD tool that I've tried. It's simple to set up new projects and pipelines without needing to add a configuration file. Sharing projects is straightforward as well. I have personal experience with Jenkins, Semaphore, CircleCI, Bitbucket Pipelines, DeployBot, and DeployHQ (and perhaps others); Buddy is the best by far.

I agree with other reviews that their paid tiers are pretty expensive, but their free tier is quite generous and has met my needs so far. I haven't tried it, but apparently you can spin up a Buddy droplet on Digital Ocean for $5 per month, which is a great option.

I am really happy to use Buddy's UI. It is the most intuitive and simple of any CI/CD tool that I've tried.
Sharing projects is straightforward as well. I have personal experience with Jenkins and Buddy is the best by far. No headache at all.
Thank you Buddy team for the great product!

Very easy to setup and monitor CI/CD tool! Lots of different predefined actions and a great integration with Docker makes Buddy a very versatile tool. YAML support makes it possible to easily replicate your pipelines over multiple projects.

Would recommend for both small scale and large scale projects!

Buddy.works is a great tool with simple UI. The pricing is high compared to other services. For the free version, you could get much of the same features with a nice ui with TeamCity by Jet Brains. Depending on the size of deployments GitLab has a clean and nice ci/cd pipeline for much less (unlimited pipelines and projects) but based on pipeline minutes. I think for the cost I would recommend other CI/CD products over buddy.

I've tried a number of automation platforms, and I have to say that I like buddy the best since the UI is clean and springy. It's also the easiest to use! :)

Run CI/CD without headache. Buddy is the easiest CI/CD solution there is. This means you really don't need to be a DevOps expert to run a CI/CD for your project. Just put together the build pipeline and get running fast.

I love how buddy streamlines the devops work for any project i have, picking up from where my team previously left of was easy, even though i don't have a lot of devops experience, the building process is easy, and the publishing side for my apps went as smooth as it could, way easier than i expected, i highly recommend it.

I really like what Buddy offers both for one-person projects up to large companies. It's really flexible and intuitive. You can easily automate deployment processes, builds, code executions and other procedures. Also, support is pretty responsive if you need anything. Really like it and highly recommend it :)

Buddy is a great tool for deployment automation! Especially the team behind it, the engineers and the support are fantastic. They reply immediately with great help and try their best.
The price is absolutely worth it.
