What is Buddy?
Who uses Buddy?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Buddy in their tech stack.
So if you look through my decisions you will see I recently wrote a decision about moving from Netlify to Buddy and Amazon S3.
I want to write another decision saying that I tried this out and actually moved back to Netlify. Buddy was great until they deleted my account and all my pipelines I setup without warning me because I didn't login for a month.
Netlify is amazing and way easier to setup, support is great and they have so many amazing options... I did learn things about Amazon S3 by moving over to there but I'm sticking with Netlify for the long run now.
I started using Buddy because I needed a website deployment tool that supports a modern development workflow. Buddy makes it really easy to set up a continuous deployment system with custom actions, including various build tools, tests and notifications. The documentation and customer support is outstanding as well. I would definitely recommend this to developers seeking a hassle-free deployment tool.
This week, we finally released NurseryPeople.com. In the end, I chose to provision our server on DigitalOcean. So far, I am SO happy with that decision. Although setting everything up was a challenge, and I learned a lot, DigitalOceans blogs helped in so many ways. I was able to set up nginx and the Laravel web app pretty smoothly. I am also using Buddy for deploying changes made in git, which is super awesome. All I have to do in order to deploy is push my code to my private repo, and buddy transfers everything over to DigitalOcean. So far, we haven't had any downtime and DigitalOceans prices are quite fair for the power under the hood.
