The most common use-case for Slack and Buddy is sending notifications on finished builds and deployments to your team channel. However, not many developers know that you can also run deployments directly from Slack:

Use case: a WordPress Project

Let’s imagine you have a WordPress application with the following actions:

  1. Prepare assets [Gulp]
  2. Deploy compiled assets [FTP]
  3. Notify your team of finished deployment or send message to QA that something went wrong [Slack]

With Buddy, you can trigger all of the above with a simple run command.

  2. Set the trigger mode to ‘On click’
  3. Select the branch from which you want to deploy
  4. Click Add a new pipeline when ready
