After using Jenkins on several projects, we say it's time to move on. Jenkins is left behind with his old approach — found out more!
By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.
We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its **lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.
We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.
In our [previous article](https://microtica.com/jenkins-is-old-we-need-an-alternative/) , we discussed **the most common problems with Jenkins** that made us search for an alternative. That’s why in this article, we’re offering a list of the most common Jenkins alternatives for continuous integration.
SonarQube is an open-source platform for continuous inspection of code quality. Here, We will discuss integrating SonarQube with Jenkins to achieve CI with fully automated code analysis.
DevOps is supposed to help streamline the process of taking code changes and getting them to production for users to enjoy. But what exactly does it mean for the process to be "streamlined"? One way to answer this is to start measuring metrics.
Automate Jenkins Pipelines management. Jenkins Job Builder takes simple descriptions of Jenkins jobs in YAML or JSON format and uses them to configure Jenkins. In the article, I will walk through a simple Jenkins Pipelines Template and procedures for the setup.
DevOps automation tools help increase your application development agility and speed up delivery for software changes.
