🔥 It's probably common knowledge that Netlify makes deployment incredibly simple- you can connect a repo, pick a build command and 🚀
or just drop a folder in and you're done!
...but here are some other things you might not know about our deploys that are very special 🧵
Netlify has a concept of "atomic" deploys- which means a few things:
- You can preview a deploy when you've or someone else has just put in a PR
- You can roll back to ANY previous state, with one click, in milliseconds
- You always know what state your cache is in!
Netlify allows you to cancel a deploy- did you just put in a change, merge it and then realize you've made a terrible mistake? I've never done that. 😬 er...
No worries. You can cancel that deploy with the click of a button.
You can lock a deploy. Let's say you get everything ready for a big release, code review and tests are complete, it's all ready.
You can lock a deploy in a state to get ready for a major release, so that you know exactly what you're releasing and sleep well the night before. 😴
You can even get notifications about locked deploys via email, outgoing webhook, or Slack. Netlify can notify you when a deploy is either locked or unlocked.
