What do you like best?

When used in conjunction with GIT and any IDE that supports it is very easy to automate tasks of the continuous development pipeline and with that free mental resources to actually work in the idea that you want to implement thru code since you can get notifications whenever something relevant for you is getting changed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In a perfect world, Travis will work on its own without minimal human interaction, and with experienced teams that is usually the case but when dealing with new developers or with those that are not accustomed to the CI/CD pipeline it is kind of not intuitive and takes some time to get used to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is great to automate tests in any CI/CD project as long as you understand how it works Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Travis works great for CI/CD pipelines. It's easy to configure and has great integrations with tools you are probably already using like github. It's also compatible with many popular languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Travis has had some outages and strange behavior in the past. Occasionally builds break due to aggressive caching - there might be a way to disable that though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It automate the build process and handle test cases. You can run test cases on mac and linux both at the same time. Configuring travis is easy using lightweight YAML file. We don't need to setup our own server to run it. It also provide free support for public repos. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When it comes to private repos the pricing is bit high compared to other providers like CircleCI. Third party integration is needed for configuring customization such as linter etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to make your life easier and save time to automate you build just go for it. It doesn't only automate the builds you can do some cool stuff to maintain you code quality and make sure nothing wrong goes to your prduction builds next time when you release.

What do you like best?

Ready and easy to use, you don’t need any extra configuration like other CI tool like Jenkins. simply integrate GitHub or version control system, when ever you push the code its tested and integrated. Multiple jobs allow you to run and test simultaneously on different environment and OS. Free for your public projects, you don’t have to pay for your test and open source projects. You don’t have to maintain hosting server, Travis CI handle and maintain updates and hosting server. Plugin and integration with third party tools are available but its limited. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Travis CI is not extensible and high customizable like Jenkins because of its limited plugins and third-party integration. You have to pay for private repositories unlike Jenkins which provide unlimited private repositories. Its not open source which is not good for highly sensitive projects whereas Jenkins is a open source. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Overall Travis CI is popular and most trusted CI tool available in market. It depends on project whether you have to use it or not. If you are working on project which is not too complex and small or medium scale, then you don’t need to go for extra work for configure just use Travis CI it easy to setup and ready to use. If you are working on large enterprise project which require lot of customization and integration with other tools, then Jenkins would be best choice for your project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Travis CI is easy and ready to use Continuous integration and continuous delivery tool available in the market. We have used Travis CI for medium scale project to automate testing, integration and deployment. We also use Travis CI for test and open source projects because it provides free public repository, you don’t have to pay for public projects. We create different jobs for each module which allow to run simultaneously on multiple environment and OS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Integration with github open source projects. Every time a push or merge takes place in a git repo that has a travis configuration, tests a run automatically. When the tests complete travis can automatically generate a built and / or deploy the project to a live server depending on your travis configuration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It "just works". The build logs can be viewed in real time (live tail). Lots of useful integrations. travis-ci.org is very popular for open source projects so many fellow developers will already be familiar with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The documentation could be better; there's no reference for the travis.yml file so you have to read/search the full docs to find what you're looking for. The pricing is on the high side. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Excellent CI solution. Pricing is on the high side but it's worth it when you consider the time saved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Travis for running tests (automated builds) and continuous deployment. It has standardized our deployment process and saved a lot of time - now we just push to the git repository and Travis takes care of the rest. If there's a build error, it'll let us know via Slack - pretty neat. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I really liked using Travis CI when I wanted to deploy changes to the open-source project I was working on - it was very easy to pinpoint which exact tests failed and where I had to go back to fix them before deploying. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes a very long time to run through the tests for some reason - the project I worked on was fairly small so I wasn't sure why it took 2 - 3 minutes just to run tests (this also slowed down our productivity in general, although I know there were other ways to run tests running it on Travis was visually the best to see what the outputs were). Additionally, even if the tests did all pass, there were still many moments that the tests didn't catch which made our website go down. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team used data from libraries from the IT team on campus to find spots on campus that were not being used so users could easily find unused rooms. Our specific project was to predict which spots would be free using past data. The benefits I realized was that deploying was fairly simple. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I knew the tool thanks to the Github platform, it seemed extraordinary the integration that these two platforms have, just by doing 'push' to my repository I could automate validation, integration and deployment tasks with only 1 command. In addition to this you can integrate the tool with Telegram Bot to be aware of the status of the deployment of the application. This is a good tool to use next to github. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

when you want to do mass deployment process, the configuration becomes a bit complex, since it does not provide tools to perform these processes from the web interface, you must have advanced technical knowledge if you want to achieve good results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this tool to all those who want to automate their development processes and deployment of applications Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this tool, the unit testing processes, massive deployment of applications, were automated. The times for deployment to production were reduced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Integrating Travis into a project is essentially painless. Create a simple config file and Travis takes care of the rest, even if your app needs to be built via Docker containers or other modern delivery mechanisms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If you have a lot of devs and a lot of projects, sometimes builds will get held up in a queue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By switching to Travis we were able to decommission our Home-grown Jenkins infrastructure that nobody on the team really cared to maintain or keep updated. Builds are generally faster and we can more easily have multiple builds at the same time.

Having Travis results directly in GitHub makes reviewing pull requests more informative as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that it is an environment where you can essentially set anything up like you would locally via your terminal. Using Travis CI also keeps everyones code constant with the linter rules in place, and in the beginning helped with learning what in the code needs to be done before deploying it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that if a Pull Request was not properly merged with the master branch that Travis CI uses to check against it will fail. So if the references don't match it just breaks, but maybe its just my works setup with Travis. Sometimes Travis feels like it takes longer than it should, but I think this is situational. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just make sure if you want to use it to build your environment that it meets all the requirements. Basically don't just assume Travis CI is the solution for you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Travis to keep our code honest.

We use it for tests to make sure it passes before deploy.

We use it as the middle man.

Benefits:

Catches errors with tests

Updates linter rules as per the parent it calls from Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It integrates well with GitHub, automatically running tests for new commits, so we don't have to manually ourselves. Forces users to ensure their code is tested before merging with master. The integration is fairly simple with just a configuration file. Granted, if you have a more complex build, this integration can be more complex. Their documentation is fairly extensive though which is good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The UI can be a bit clunky to use and the view for builds could load faster. It also can get pricey for the paid versions for a startup. If you have multiple team mates collaborating, the list of builds waiting can queue up meaning you're waiting potentially hours (if each build takes 30min). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This tool saves developers a lot of time and ensures higher quality output from an engineering team. I would definitely recommend it and if you have an Open Source project, it's free too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it mainly for automated tests and continuous deployment for our staging environment. It saves our developers time from handling these tasks that take somewhere between 30-60minutes each time. And instead free them up to be working on other things. It means all code is now always tested routinely without any excuses for lack of time/laziness. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Travis has been a very good experience to me compared to using other CI. We went from CircleCI to this because of it's simplicity, the config is very easy and the documentation is really good for the newcomers to using CI's. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The UI I think is the weakest part of Travis, compared to some other CI's, it'd lacking in that front, but not in very wide gap though. Something clean and really modern would do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Travis CI is one of the best CI's I have ever used. It has great support for web development, is very accessible for new users, has several integrations with other software to make it even better and just overall faster and stabler than any other CI's i have used. The UI though, although satisfactory could be better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Travis CI as a tool for checking if tests are working before we deploy them. We use it as a measure if a pull request for our application is good for deployment. It also has integration with slack and chrome has been really good overall. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Travis CI makes it easy to setup Continuous Integration services for projects hosted on Github. For open-source, public projects on Github, the service is completely free (travis-ci.org is for open-source projects, travis-ci.com for commercial).

The service allows building and testing with a large variety of supported languages.

Using a "build matrix" the code can be tested under different language versions.

After a successful build, the code can be directly deployed. Travis works well together with Heroku (heroku.com) for this purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

With very large test suites or very complex dependencies, builds can sometimes take some time. However, this is in inherent problem with Continuous Integration services, not limited to Travis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Free Continuous Integration services for open-source, public repositories hosted on Github. Integrates well with Heroku. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Travis allows very clearly communicating the current status of a project. Builds are tested on a secondary platform, without any customizations, that is not the developer's machine, preventing the dreaded "works on my machine" problem. The ability to test under different language versions makes uncovering bugs when supporting older versions simpler. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love the integration with Github, when it adds visual information to a pull request to let you see how a build is progressing and what problems it has (if any).

I love that it's very easy to configure without any hassle.

I love the badge you can put on a website or in your readme to show whether the build is passing or not.

I love the fact that it has built-in support to deploy to other vendors, like Heroku Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Difficult to build native .Net projects without using Mono, but that's more of a disappointment with the .Net build ecosystem and not a fault of Travis as such.

Also, pricing - I've only had need to use the free open-source tier, as all the projects I've worked with are open source, but the price of the first paid tier ($129 per month!) is, for me, quite prohibitive and really puts me off making the leap to pay for it.

If there was an even cheaper tier, for example one which was say $30 per month with 1 concurrent job and limited minutes per month, but allowed private repositories, then I would probably make that jump. I just feel there's a big gap in the entry-level pricing tiers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try and not be put of by big words like "continuous deployment". It was so easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing a website for my wedding with another developer. We quickly realised the benefits of Continuous Deployment specifically, and more importantly, how easy it was to set it all up. Everyone should be doing this! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
