GoCD vs TeamCity: What are the differences?

Developers describe GoCD as "Open source continuous delivery tool allows for advanced workflow modeling and dependencies management". GoCD is an open source continuous delivery server created by ThoughtWorks. GoCD offers business a first-class build and deployment engine for complete control and visibility. On the other hand, TeamCity is detailed as "TeamCity is an ultimate Continuous Integration tool for professionals". TeamCity is a user-friendly continuous integration (CI) server for professional developers, build engineers, and DevOps. It is trivial to setup and absolutely free for small teams and open source projects.

GoCD and TeamCity can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by GoCD are:

  • Model complex workflows with dependency management and parallel execution
  • Easy to pass once-built binaries between stages
  • Visibility into your end-to-end workflow. Track a change from commit to deploy at a glance

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

  • Automate code analyzing, compiling, and testing processes, with having instant feedback on build progress, problems, and test failures, all in a simple, intuitive web-interface
  • Simplified setup: create projects from just a VCS repository URL
  • Run multiple builds and tests under different configurations and platforms simultaneously

"Open source" is the top reason why over 29 developers like GoCD, while over 52 developers mention "Easy to configure" as the leading cause for choosing TeamCity.

GoCD is an open source tool with 5.07K GitHub stars and 796 GitHub forks. Here's a link to GoCD's open source repository on GitHub.

Stack Exchange, ebay, and Apple are some of the popular companies that use TeamCity, whereas GoCD is used by Auto Trader, Hazeorid, and OpenX. TeamCity has a broader approval, being mentioned in 237 company stacks & 351 developers stacks; compared to GoCD, which is listed in 40 company stacks and 78 developer stacks.

I'm open to anything. just want something that break less and doesn't need me to pay for it, and can be hosted on Docker. our scripting language is powershell core. so it's better to support it. also we are building dotnet core in our pipeline, so if they have anything related that helps with the CI would be nice.

What are some alternatives to GoCD and TeamCity?
Jenkins
In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
GitLab CI
GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.
Bamboo
Focus on coding and count on Bamboo as your CI and build server! Create multi-stage build plans, set up triggers to start builds upon commits, and assign agents to your critical builds and deployments.
Concourse
Concourse's principles reduce the risk of switching to and from Concourse, by encouraging practices that decouple your project from your CI's little details, and keeping all configuration in declarative files that can be checked into version control.
CircleCI
Continuous integration and delivery platform helps software teams rapidly release code with confidence by automating the build, test, and deploy process. Offers a modern software development platform that lets teams ramp.
