Building a website or web application is a tremendous process. Most developers rely on 3rd party apps to generate codes, compile CSS/JS, and launch websites online. Each of these individual processes have typically been handled separately – but a new app named DeployBot is meant to change all of that.
The idea behind DeployBot is to centralize deployment of projects whether for initial testing, version staging, or live production. It can also handle typical dev tasks like Gulp/Grunt or Sass compression.
Changes can easily be deployed to multiple locations whether they’re pulled from a repository, FTP server, or cloud-based hosting like AWS.
DeployBot was made to work solo but also in large team environments. When deployments are made you can schedule updates to be sent via Slack, Basecamp, or other IM/chat clients.
The beauty is that all changes can be tracked right from your browser. It’s also much easier to roll back to previous changes if there are any troubles with a deployment. It’s really meant to be the most powerful application for handling large projects that require continual testing.
If you want to test it out DeployBot offers a completely free account for life with a limit of 1 repository. But every single account(including the free account) will offer unlimited deployments and unlimited users.
Those who have been looking for a solution like this will immediately find DeployBot to be the answer to their prayers. If you’re confused about how to get started check out the support area for more details.
