A further step in automation: postdeploy hooks

October 11, 2016 - 2:34PM

When you deploy your application, you may want to trigger custom actions after the deployment succeeded automatically. So far you had to run custom commands by hand which was sensible to human-keyboard interface errors. This hook is then exactly what you need. It will automatically start the configured command at the end of your deployment.

August 17, 2016 - 12:23PM

It is needed when your service works well and attract new users, your growth is viral, your app appears on a TV show or just after you shoot an email to your 250k prospects. To be able to scale, you and your app must be prepared. While many factors can hinder your ability to scale, in this article we’ll cover the 12 most common and how to fix them.

Since November 2015, the Scalingo CLI has provided container resource usage in real time. Sometimes you have to dig deeper to truly understand the behaviours of your app. You need to see the evolution of these values to make sense out of them. That’s why we’ve been working on a new metrics view for the Scalingo Dashboard.
