One of the most important components of pipelines is the filesystem: a reserved disk space with a clone of your repository, where Buddy installs dependencies, merges & compresses the assets, and generates artifacts.

With this week's release we've added a UI distinction for three types of files and folders in the filesystem:

  • repository files – files cloned directly from your repository
  • artifact files – files processed or created by the pipeline, for example merged CSS, WAR files or Zip archives
  • static files – files manually uploaded to the filesystem, for example config files whose assets you don't want to commit to the repository for security reasons
