Buddy — One-click delivery automation for web developers

Visit site

Docker-based CI server with auto-deployment tools for GitHub, Bitbucket, and GitLab.

Buddy lets you automatically build, test and deploy apps and websites on a single push to the repository, with the easiest setup and UX of all current CI/CD services.


  • Integrates with GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, and private repositories
  • Automatic deployments to FTP/SFTP and cloud services, including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and DigitalOcean
  • Kubernetes and Docker Sward support
  • Docker-based builds and tests with auto-notifications
  • DevOps and website monitoring tools
  • Supports PHP, Node.js, Java, Ruby, Python, .NET, Golang, Jekyll, and more

Why Buddy is better than your current CI/CD solution

  1. Using Docker containers for builds ensures stability with the same testing environment across the whole team
  2. Updating servers is very fast because only changed files are deployed, not the whole repository every time
  3. Numerous integrations allow you to seamlessly add Buddy to your software stack
  4. Docker architecture allows on-premises installation on any type of Linux server, including DigitalOcean
  5. Additional actions like website monitoring and SSH scripts reduce the number of tools required in work
  6. Detailed documentation with use case-filled guides and friendly support make it easy to start using Buddy
