I'll definitely check it out - but the problem with many of these tools is a lack of "proper" Docker support, along with the ability to self host and debug. Thanks for the heads up!

GitLab CI has proper Docker support. You can set a default docker image for each runner `--docker-image ruby:2.1` or set one for the project in the .gitlab-ci.yml file. For more information see https://docs.gitlab.com/ce/ci/docker/using_docker_images.htm...

Did you know GitLab also comes with a private container registry? https://about.gitlab.com/2016/05/23/gitlab-container-registr...

Also notable is services like docker-in-docker (and privileged docker containers) are allowed, which is a huge win over services like Atlassian's Pipelines.

Without dind, it's really hard/annoying to us CI/CD to build docker images. But with Gitlab, they also provide a place to store docker images (the "registry") right next to your code, for free!

At work, we're investigating moving to Gitlab for everything except issues (which we'd need to keep on JIRA for now since we're so embedded with it). It looks like Gitlab does have some integration with JIRA, but it's project-level, and it would be nice if it could be group-level since we have many small repos. :)

(I don't have an affiliation with Gitlab, I'm just super happy with the service.)

Hi! Thanks for your kindness =)

We have a couple of open issues about integration with multiple JIRA projects: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/25541 and https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/25758. Having group level integration can be a good solution for these requests. We will talk about it on those issues feel free to join the discussion.

Thanks for the comment! Group-level integration with JIRA is a nice idea. I've created an issue for this [1]. If you would like to give us more details on how we could achieve this, or give us some insights of your use cases, please comment in this issue!

Thanks for your kind words for GitLab! Our JIRA support is pretty extensive https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/project_services/jira.html but extending it further is a priority. Felipe Artur is working on this full time. Consider creating an issue for group level integration, it sounds interesting.

Thanks for clarification - I'll definitely have a look :)

Full disclosure, I am a Codeship employee that helps onboard new customers for our Docker support.

That said, our (Codeship) Docker support is the most "Docker native" on the market, in my opinion. We build your containers, by default, using a Compose-based syntax and all commands are natively executed by your containers. There's no interacting with a Docker host or running explicit Docker commands at all.

We don't offer self-hosting but we do have a local CLI that lets you run and debug your process locally with parity to your remote builds.
