DeployBot vs Deployer: What are the differences?

DeployBot: Instantly deploy from Github, Bitbucket, or Gitlab without complex scripts, commands or configs. DeployBot makes it simple to deploy your work anywhere. You can compile or process your code in a Docker container on our infrastructure, and we'll copy it to your servers once everything has been successfully built; Deployer: Deployment Tool for PHP. A deployment tool written in PHP with support for popular frameworks out of the box.

DeployBot and Deployer can be categorized as "Continuous Deployment" tools.

Some of the features offered by DeployBot are:

  • Manually deploy with a click in the app, automatically deploy on each push, or use deploy tags in a commit [deploy:production].
  • DeployBot gathers new and changed files from your repositories since the last deployment. You can even preview the changes first.
  • Files are uploaded, SSH commands are executed and deployment hooks are triggered. Everything is logged for you.

On the other hand, Deployer provides the following key features:

  • Simple setup process and a minimal learning curve
  • Ready to use recipes for most frameworks
  • Parallel execution without extensions

"Easy setup" is the primary reason why developers consider DeployBot over the competitors, whereas "Simply to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Deployer.
