It’s been almost one year since Buddy was released and we don’t even think of slowing down the tempo. Here’s the most important stuff from this week’s release:
- banner notifications for your mobile devices and browser
- .NET, Python, Go, Elixir and Gradle build actions
- newsletter to your inbox with new features and latest changes
- release number added to changelog versioning
Buddy & badges are teaming up to make your status pages more exciting. Now you can present status of pipelines executions on different websites as well.
You can embed status images badges into your README or website.
We’ve been listening carefully what our users need to help them automate their work. What we’ve found out is that developers want a possibility to use variables all over the pipelines without having to copy & paste the same values like maniacs.
That’s why we’re introducing Environment Variables.
Head over heels in work, we hardly find time to put the changelog online. Today’s update is rather weighty (surprise) and delivers a cartload of goodies, with Shopify integration taking the first spot. Yes, you can now upload your Shopify themes with a dedicated pipeline action!
It’s been two weeks since we launched Buddy Enterprise to a very warm welcome from the web development community (thank you guys!) and it’s good time to announce a feature that many of you have been asking for: integration with GitHub Enterprise and GitLab self-hosted installations.
Today’s udpate 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!).
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.
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.
