Travis CI Alternative for Private Projects

Example Semaphore CI/CD pipeline

Travis CI is one of the most popular hosted Continuous Integration solutions. Most notably, it has made a huge contribution to the developer community by serving the biggest share of open source projects.

However in 2019 most new software projects are looking for a solution that can drive the entire Continuous Delivery lifecycle. There’s also little evidence in the developer tools space of companies making customer-centric innovations after being acquired by a private equity fund. So after the last week’s announcement of Travis CI’s acquisition by Idera Inc., many developers have started exploring alternatives.

Over the years the most common benefit that we’ve heard from customers who migrated from Travis CI to Semaphore has been higher productivity. Developers work better when continuous integration is faster and more reliable: with consistent job runtime and no flaky builds.

Here’s a summary of the key Semaphore features that would be relevant to people looking for an alternative to Travis CI for their private projects:
