New design of deployment actions

"Clean", "intuitive", "easy to use" – Buddy's UI is probably the most praised feature of the service, which makes us extremely proud. Of course, it's not about bells & whistles just for the sake of it – every single element has been carefully crafted to help developers introduce CI/CD with as little effort as possible.

However, we've been adding new features for so long now that the time has come to clean up the house and move some furniture.

The first in line are deployment actions. The features that so far were hidden at the bottom in the More Options menu have been moved to dedicated tabs at the top:

Ignore paths

Ignore paths and exceptions now look like this:

Trigger condition

Most of the deployment actions also have a trigger condition:

Name and status

The last are action settings, where you can change the name and disable the action without removing it from the pipeline:

We are going to gradually clean up the rest of the service where required. Should you have any feedback on what we can improve and where, feel free to let us know in the comments, or directly on our live-chat.
