Jenkins vs StackStorm: What are the differences?
Jenkins: An extendable open source continuous integration server. 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; StackStorm: Open Source IFTTT for Ops: event-driven automation, security responses, auto-remediation with workflow engine & ChatOps. StackStorm is a platform for integration and automation across services and tools. It ties together your existing infrastructure and application environment so you can more easily automate that environment -- with a particular focus on taking actions in response to events.
Jenkins and StackStorm are primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" and "Remote Server Task Execution" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Jenkins are:
- Easy installation
- Easy configuration
- Change set support
On the other hand, StackStorm provides the following key features:
- Automations tie events to actions you’d like to take, using a rules engine and, if you want, comprehensive workflow. Automations are your operational patterns summarized as code.
- StackStorm automations work either by starting with your existing scripts – just add simple meta data – or by authoring the automations within StackStorm.
- Automations are the heart of StackStorm – they allow you to share operational patterns, boost productivity, and automate away the routine.
"Hosted internally" is the top reason why over 498 developers like Jenkins, while over 2 developers mention "Auto-remediation" as the leading cause for choosing StackStorm.
Jenkins and StackStorm are both open source tools. It seems that Jenkins with 13.5K GitHub stars and 5.56K forks on GitHub has more adoption than StackStorm with 3.36K GitHub stars and 445 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Jenkins has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2424 company stacks & 9031 developers stacks; compared to StackStorm, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 20 developer stacks.
