Frontend, Launches, and New Features

Thumb1400

Following our live stream last Thursday, we released a brand new version of DeployHQ to all our customers.

The main features and additions that you'll find in the new DeployHQ include:

  • A brand new design and colour scheme for both the app and website
  • Build commands for compiling your code on our own build servers before deployment
  • A completely re-written deployment progress screen
  • The ability to search for specific projects in your account
  • The DeployHQ Academy, which includes revised documentation and support articles

New Design

As part of the new version, we've completely redesigned and rebranded the DeployHQ app:

New app

In particular, we've updated the navigation to make it easier to configure your project and find individual settings.

In addition to the app, we've redesigned the DeployHQ website.

New website

Build Commands

We've added Build Commands as part of the new version of DeployHQ, which you can use to compile CSS or javascript, fetch dependencies for your project or even build a whole website using a static site generator.

Build Commands

This feature is now in open Beta and you can enable it on your account within any project - just use the Build Commands link on the left hand side of the screen, then the Join Beta button at the top.

Deployment progress

One of the biggest design changes includes a complete rewrite of the deployment screen. We've now split the deployment into multiple steps, which allows you to easily check individual parts of the deployment either in progress, or after the deployment has finished.

Deployment steps

Project Searching

We now have a global project selector to make it even easier to jump between projects and start new deployments.

Search

Just visit your Projects page or click the rocket to the top right of the screen, then type a search at the top. You can then immediately run a deployment via the Deploy to the right hand side of any projects that have been found from your search.

DeployHQ Academy

We've added a brand new support area to the DeployHQ website - the DeployHQ Academy - which contains a number of useful sections including our new manual. This has a full suite of documentation with set up guides, troubleshooting and information about all the features in the platform.

Summary

We hope you enjoy the new UI! Let us know if you have any questions or feedback.
