GitHub Actions Vs. Jenkins

the photo says it all ;)

Jenkins and GitHub Actions both allow you to create workflows that automatically build, test, publish, release, and deploy code. Jenkins and GitHub Actions share some similarities in workflow configuration:

  • Jenkins creates workflows using Declarative Pipelines, which are similar to GitHub Actions workflow files.
  • Jenkins uses stages to run a collection of steps, while GitHub Actions uses jobs to group one or more steps or individual commands.
  • Jenkins and GitHub Actions support container-based builds.
  • Steps or tasks can be reused and shared with the community.
  • Jenkins has two types of syntax for creating pipelines: Declarative Pipeline and Scripted Pipeline. GitHub Actions uses YAML to create workflows and configuration files.
  • Jenkins deployments are typically self-hosted, with users maintaining the servers in their own data centers. GitHub Actions offers a hybrid cloud approach by hosting its own runners that you can use to run jobs, while also supporting self-hosted runners.
