Summary
:
We've introduced a new way to control your deployment pipeline directly from your commit messages! You can now include special commands in your commit messages to modify the behavior of your deployments on the fly.
Here are the commands you can use:
  • [skip_build]
    : Use this tag if you want to bypass the asset building process for a specific deployment. This can save time if you know your latest changes don't affect assets.
  • [skip_cache]
    : With this tag, DeployBot will ignore the existing cache and perform the necessary steps to ensure your deployment reflects the most recent changes without using any cached data.
  • [from_scratch]
    : This powerful command tells DeployBot to execute a deployment from scratch, ensuring a completely fresh state. It's like hitting the reset button for your deployment.
  • [silent]
    : If you prefer a quiet deployment, use this tag. DeployBot will carry out the deployment without sending any notifications, keeping your workflow uninterrupted.
Simply include these commands in your commit message to make use of the new features.
For example:
git commit -m "Update styles for new header layout [skip_build] [silent]"
We're excited to see how these new commands will help streamline your deployment process.
Happy deploying! 🚀
---
Remember: Use these commands responsibly, as they can affect the deployment process and may lead to deployments not reflecting the latest state of your codebase if used incorrectly.
