In a previous post I explored using Bitbucket Pipelines to generate and publish Docker images for my projects. I was worried I would reach the 50 minutes limit pretty quickly, but even before I reached it I ran into other issues that made me look for other options. Namely, you can’t use docker-compose or the docker run command in Pipelines.
While looking for other options I found GitLab. I had heard a lot of things about GitLab in the past, especially about their very advanced deployment pipelines capability. One thing that I didn’t know, which makes me very happy, is that they have a free tier that includes 2,000 minutes of CI per month (Around 1 hour per day). This number should be more than enough for my personal project needs.
