Shippable offers OpenShift customers blazing fast CI/CD service

Shippable is pleased to announce that we now offer OpenShift customers our blazing fast, hosted CI/CD service. OpenShift customers can now choose the simplicity of using a true SaaS solution instead of spending the Gears to host a CI server themselves (not to mention further engineering time configuring and maintaining their CI system).
Shippable will (soon) be available through RedHat's OpenShift Marketplace.
You can try Shippable's service (in BETA) on OpenShift right now at openshift.shippable.com

Shippable now supports BitBucket!

As we promised at our launch, the Shippable engineering team has been working crazy hours to add new features. 

Many of the features we add are by user request.  If you would like to suggest a feature or enhancement, head on over to Shippable support and file an issue.

Shippable started off being tightly integrated with Github - as it was the cloud repository of choice, especially for open source projects. When it comes to private repos however, BitBucket has become a popular alternative to Github.

So one very common user request we received at Shippable was - to add support for BitBucket. And when our users speak, the Shippable team listens....

We are happy to announce that Shippable now supports BitBucket


Shippable downtime today - more details

At around 12PM UTC yesterday, our build infrastructure began experiencing issues. The root cause was identified to be a problem with the Docker installations on our minion hosts. Although the problem was identified quickly, the recovery process resulted in nearly 4 hours of down time during which your builds and minion provisioning requests stayed queued. The problem has been fully resolved and the system is now running normally.

Enabling guest access for RabbitMQ 3.3.0 on Docker

It's always good to start from scratch ... sometimes. We added some new folks to the team this week and as they were setting up their environments, they kept getting an error, "login failed for guest user," with RabbitMQ on Docker. The rest of us had the older version of RabbitMQ, which was working fine.

Build status is now integrated with GitHub pull requests!

A good continuous integration and deployment solution integrates seamlessly with customer workflows and acts like an invisible helper (for the most part) to ensure that the codebase is always deployable. Shippable strives to do just that. Users are notified about build status in their Inbox and they can change config settings by changing a few lines in the shippable.yml file in their repository. All without coming to the Shippable UI.

Today, we have enabled a significant scenario which will help further this philosophy - support for the GitHub commit status API.
