What is Gitlab CI?
GitLab CI/CD helps you automatically build, test, deploy, and monitor your code. Run tests before every merge (Continuous Integration) to make sure the code is continuously strong. Set up your git repository to automatically trigger builds when you push commits (Continuous Delivery). Integrate behavior-driven development (BDD) frameworks like Cucumber or jBehave into your workflow to write more comprehensive automated acceptance tests that communicate functionality more effectively than plain unit tests.
