Important: Change in GitHub scopes for Shippable

We recently found a bug that prevented us from deleting webhooks on GitHub when a user who had only authorized Shippable for public repositories deleted a project on Shippable. The root cause of this bug is that we have write:repo_hooks scope for public repositories, and this does not include permissions to delete a webhook. From GitHub documentation -


Who is affected by this?

Existing users who have authorized Shippable only for GitHub public repos.

One of the easiest ways to get started with web application development nowadays is to bootstrap your project with full-stack JavaScript frameworks. Node.js has made server-side JavaScript a reality, and a large portion of users choose to use the Express framework on top of Node to easily create REST routes.

FAQ-Why does Shippable ask for R/W access to my repos?

The Shippable team believes that feedback is the breakfast of champions! And one of the questions / user queries that we regularly get asked is - why does Shippable need read/write permissions to all my repos?

 So, we would like to explain. We use read/write permissions for your repos only to auto configure webhooks. To make webhooks work, we need to add deploy keys to your repos. We never touch your code. You can control access - allow access to only public repos only or public and private repos. We don't ask for blanket permissions.

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
