Today's update brings a serious package of bug fixes, new features and improvements. For example, you can now ship code from GitHub Enterprise and deploy it to Google Cloud Storage, and the GitLab On-Premises integration is already lurking around the corner (yikes!).
We're happy to announce that the self-hosted version of Buddy (codenamed BuddyGo) is almost ready. You will be able to install it on any operating system, alongiside DigitalOcean, Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure cloud services. There will be a beta period for those who'd like to have a sneak-peek (and help us clear some occasional bugs ;) so keep checking your inbox for an invitation email!
The works on the self-hosted version of Buddy are steadily moving towards completion. At the same time we're upgrading the cloud application with new features and improvements, fixing all the bugs that you've reported on the way.
It's June already and Buddy is keeping up the pace steadily evolving towards the best Continuous Deployment software of 2016 (just teasing). Today's release brings the biggest package of changes so far, with brand new action view (don't you just love the new cog-wheelies?) and a cartload of bugfixes and improvements, with commit commands and rocket-fast builds on top of the list.
Last week was pretty quiet in terms of new stuff getting delivered. Sure, we've fixed some stuff here and there, but the most important news is that we're currently working on two features that will hit you in the face like this classic ad 20 years ago.
In the last two weeks we worked hard on improvements to the speed and UX to make it easier for you to fall in love with Buddy. Perhaps the most important feature of this release, however, is adding services to the builds, just like we promised. What feature would you like to see in Buddy in a future release? Drop a word in the comments or hit me on email. Always happy to hear from you guys.
Howdy, buddies! This week is sponsored by the letter 'D' like Docker. Folks requesting building their own Docker images in Buddy can finally do that with a dedicated build action + deliver it to Docker Hub or private registry. We're a step closer to servicing data bases, too, plus we've cleared a couple of pesky bugs. You know, the usual Buddy stuff.
In last two weeks we focused on clearing bugs and optimizing the system for smoother experience. Of other things that may interest you, we've officially commenced works on the standalone version of the application, which means that you will soon be able to host Buddy on your local server. Yikes!
We're happy to announce that Buddy now officially supports GitLab as a Git provider. Setting up the integration is easy and only requires authorizing GitLab in your profile. Once you do that, it will appear on the list on the project creation screen.
Today's update drops a real bomb: GitLab integration. This means you can now ship code from your GitLab repository and use Buddy to build, test and deploy your apps and websites. Hooray! If you'd like to learn how to hook up your GitLab repos, this article will help you out.
