Continuous Integration and Delivery is all about simplicity. It's not about configuring the process just for the sake of it—it's about stripping it down to the bare minimum and adding new steps only if necessary. This approach guided us during Buddy's development – to create a tool simple enough for every developer to embrace automation and expand the process at any point. It also applies to the very first step, which is setting up an account: a task that defines the whole user experience onwards.
We're excited to announce that Buddy is now available as a one-click installation on a DigitalOcean's droplet, the simplest form of on-premises installation ever delivered.
"As developers and small- and mid-sized businesses turn to modern apps to power their latest projects, we want to help make app creation easier from start to finish. By building upon DigitalOcean's Developer Cloud to simplify infrastructure, Buddy automates even the most complicated CI/CD workflows in just one click." – says Nick Wade, Head of DO's Ecosystem & Marketplace.
DigitalOcean has always been a popular destination for apps and websites created with Buddy—we are more than happy to see it become a popular housing for the tool itself.
