Today, I’m excited to announce REPOMAN.IO! A simple, affordable, and effective tool for deploying your code. We have a great set of core features (automatic push deployments, parallel deployments, detailed reporting, team collaboration) and many additional features on the way (two-factor authentication, slack notifications, custom commit flags, and much more).
I’ve been part of the Drupal community for about 6 years now, and have been involved in the Laravel community for a little less than half that time. One thing I love about open source communities is the variety of people I meet. In my career I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest brands in the world, but some of my most cherished memories have come from hacking away with freelancers, enthusiasts, and hobbyists at camps, conventions, and meetups.
The only third-party options out there are expensive--most in the $15 to $30 a month range. I wanted a solution that covered the basic functionality I needed, and would cost me less than my github account!
A couple years ago I became frustrated that some of the tools we were using with enterprise clients were not available at prices that were appealing and approachable to the little guy. I wanted to pay $7 a month for my small Github account, but needed an easy and reliable way to deploy code updates to my servers without having to touch an FTP client or manage and maintain scripts. The only third-party options out there are expensive--most in the $15 to $30 a month range. I wanted a solution that covered the basic functionality I needed, and would cost me less than my github account! REPOMAN.IO is the solution.
If you have any questions, feedback, or new feature ideas please don’t hesitate to give us a shout! You can find us on Twitter or use our contact form. We will be giving out t-shirts, gift cards, and free premium memberships over the next few months as we gather your thoughts and refine and improve the tool.
I’m excited about this project, and think you will be too! When the 3-month community preview period ends, the basic plan (which includes up to 6 sites and 3 servers) will cost only $4 a month.
