Custom Service

Custom Service - Features, integrations, alternatives & more

What it does

This service attaches a custom service to an action from the Build, Build Tools & Task Runners, Static Site Generators category.

How it works

Custom service runs as a separate container but in the same network as the action to which is attached. This includes other services attached to the action. Buddy runs main action commands only once the service is fully initialized. The service is terminated once the action is completed. The service is cacheable it means data generated and stored by the service can be set persistent between action executions.
