Pros
The main advantage is the ease of configuration and operation. If time to market is a priority it is an excellent choice.

Quite good documentation (comprehensive). Supports several environments, including Macs (and now Windows too).

With very little configuration, you can create a nice CI/CD pipeline. It also supports a build matrix feature, which makes it easy to run tests with different configurations.

Cons
Or failing to deploy to github releases without an helpful error messages. Or worse, saying you did deploy, but then the package is nowhere to be found, and there is no way to debug this.

RD

Robert D.

This is generally because of some piece of travis infrastructure that has suddenly stopped, but there are no notifications, nor status indications that anything is wrong.

Customer service is terrible. Turn arounds are 24 hours are more.

CI tool that has a lot of value for the money

Reviewed 2 years ago

I started using Travis initially because I needed a way to have consistent builds of our desktop software (built on Electron). Travis has just the tools I needed to make this happen. Doing local builds of the software was processor intensive, I had to go check the status of the build and I was always changing software on my local machine so sometimes builds would fail because I changed something. Travis has completely containerized build machines so you get the same result every time. We now use it for building all our software. I don't know what we'd do without it.

Pros

* Affordable (it's priced based on users/seats) * Documentation is solid and easy to follow. I've never needed to contact support. There's good online Q&A since Travis has a large user base. * Versatile (whatever software you're building, there's a recipe for it) * Github integration : you get realtime build status RIGHT in Github which is awesome, once you get your system set up, you rarely ever visit Travis again. It just works.

Cons

There's really nothing I didn't like about Travis. Some of the quirks of Electron were the trickiest things to figure out, but that's not Travis's fault. There's a little learning curve when you go from building locally to building remotely with Travis where you need to understand how to set environment variables and retrieve those values in your config/script.

Travis CI is great automation tool is easy to configure and run.

Reviewed 2 years ago

We have used Travis ci for automation of code building, testing and deployment. Travis CI is one of the top continuous integration and continuous delivery tool available in the market. We usually use Travis CI for medium scale projects because it easy to use, few minutes of configure is needed comparative to Jenkins which require skilled professional to configure it. We have used it for test projects as it is free for public projects. Travis Ci is good for small to medium scale projects, which doesn’t require much of the customization or less complex projects. Travis CI is also good for public and open source projects because it provides free tier for public projects. It’s easy to use, you don’t need any professional skill to set it up.

Pros

Great thing about Travis CI is it’s easy to use, easy to configure and start running it, you can easily integrate GitHub account and whenever you push your code its integrated and tested on Travis CI. Travis CI doesn’t need hosting server to run it unlike Jenkins which require hosting server. For public projects you don’t have to pay, its free to use for you test and open source projects. Testing on different environment, devices, OS is optimized and run synchronously. You don’t have to maintain software updates for Travis CI unlike Jenkins. It is fast for testing code on different environment by having different jobs like you can have separate job for unit testing and separate jobs for integration testing.

Cons

Travis CI doesn’t have that much flexibility respect to customization as compare to Jenkins. Integration with third-party tools is not too much which reduces it flexibility. You code is accessible to Travis CI which is not good for most sensitive projects. You must pay for private projects as comparative to Jenkins which is free for private projects.

Travis CI: Great overall for over 8 years. Not anymore after travis-ci.COM migration & OSS credits

Reviewed 15 days ago

Overall, Travis CI used to be the best turnkey solution for independent Open Source developers to set up Continuous Integration and Unit Testing pipelines. Thanks to bad actors such as unscrupulous bitcoin miners, this once great free open source community service has been morphed into a paid credit-based system. Lack of customer support responses have pushed independent volunteer open source developers out. We simply cannot afford CI testing when our software is free and open source by design.

Pros

As a long-time user of TravisCI for 8 years, I loved the ease of setting up CI testing pipelines and testing matrices with a single .travis.yml file. It made testing DevOps Chef cookbooks easy and was a great solution that integrated well with test-kitchen.

Cons

When getting a remote VM testing pipeline set up, there are some barriers to ease of debugging. This was primarily due to the lack of live SSH terminal access to poke around at the testing environment to debug job failures. After they added Debug Mode, this became a bit easier. The main problem with Travis-CI was recently introduced with the travis-ci.COM migration. Users were encouraged to migrate...

Static matrices and changes to OSS terms mean I cannot recommend the product

Reviewed 3 months ago

Our initial years with Travis were successful, and we were quite happy with the product. But over time, the lack of flexibility meant struggling to create and deploy our CI definitions. But the part that killed Travis for us was the change to OSS terms late in 2020. We'd already noticed that our queues would become long, particularly if we had many contributors or maintainers working simultaneously. But with the changes in terms, we quickly ran into a scenario where we ran out of hours by mid-month. This left us with an untenable situation; as an OSS project, we have limited funds, and we would quickly run through those if we purchased a plan. As a result, we are within 1-2 weeks of moving off the platform entirely.

Pros

When we first started using the product, it was one of the few that existed, and it provided us exactly the assurances we needed to have predictable, stable software releases. Idempotent runs made it possible to know exactly when and why something failed.

Cons

Since we produce OSS libraries, it's important for us to test against each language version we support. Unfortunately, there is no way in Travis to dynamically create a matrix based on the library/package definition itself. For instance, we produce PHP libraries, and our package management solution, Composer, allows us to specify in the package the versions we support. Unfortunately, when we change...
