We've been really enjoying Knapsack Pro, it's been saving us a ton of time.
Knapsack Pro has helped us build an insanely fast and scalable build pipeline with almost no setup or maintenance.
My team at @GustoHQ recently added @KnapsackPro to our CI. It's pretty sweet... It makes your builds faster _and_ (this is almost the better bit) more consistent! Thank you for the awesome tool!— Stephan Hagemann (@shageman) September 26, 2022
We've been using knapsack for a couple of weeks now and I've just tried the trial of Knapsack Pro, and it has managed to reduce our build time (mostly by more accurate balancing) to such a great place.
Knapsack Pro saves us hours of engineer waiting time every week, and is the best solution for keeping our tests load balanced that we've used to date.
We are using CircleCI and we noticed that builds were being limited by the slowest parallelized container. Knapsack Pro was really east to setup and we saw huge improvements right away. Thank you for making this tool!

Knapsack Pro should be the first and only tool you reach for when starting to address long build and test times for Ruby apps. It's so easy to set up on your CI provider that you should do it now, even if you don't need parallelization today. That way, on the day where you first think that you wish tests were faster, you already have all the data and infrastructure you need to quickly half or quarter your build and test times.
Good customer support is hard to find which is why when I get it I like to call it out.— Molly Struve 🦄 (@molly_struve) June 3, 2020
Today I emailed support @KnapsackPro a basic question and not only was the reply prompt and answered my question, the email went even further giving me tips to improve our use case! 🤯 💯 🙏

Shoutout for being so customer-centric & ensuring the experience was delightful from day one!
Your no-pressure sales model really worked for me. The fact there was no pressure and we were getting value really helped me make the purchase decision.
This is a fantastic product, it's been a total game-changer for us.
I'm very impressed with how well knapsack balancing works.
I just logged into my account expecting it to say that I needed to add a credit card and was so surprised and delighted to see the trial doesn't count usage by calendar days but by testing days! This is incredible! I love it!!!
I just wanted to say that I really appreciate that small but very huge feature. Thank you for being so thoughtful :)

wow, just wow ... dude from Japan has just told us during #aadays2019 about @KnapsackPro, a tool from Krakow, Poland (@ArturTrzop), thank you Tadashi Nemoto https://t.co/YpSpnmjeIn this a way to share knowledge and success stories!— Karol Szewczak (@bvccaneer) October 29, 2019
🛠 How to run 7 hours of tests in 4 minutes using 100 parallel Buildkite agents and @KnapsackPro’s queue mode: https://t.co/zbXMIyNN8z— Buildkite (@buildkite) March 29, 2017
Knapsack Pro allowed us to achieve great test isolation and therefore stability in End-to-end tests while still maintaining the speed of the whole test suite. On top of that, support is just excellent!
Just wanted to give a huge shoutout to @KnapsackPro and @ArturTrzop for being on hand to help debug production build issues at a moments notice! Amazing response time and is extremely patient at answering all weird questions that I have!— Nikhil Kulkarni (@mnk_kulkarni) August 21, 2020
Finding a tool that could reduce the pipeline run time by ten times was a great joy. It is undoubtedly a huge time and budget-saver for us and our clients.
And special thanks to Artur for his excellent support. I know that most of the questions I could find in the docs and Artur were so kind to explain everything again and again in detail.
