I launch something stupid, as usual
I build weird software. Like, just as a hobby.
This, like so many of my projects, started with a strange idea.
I made a video, even, explaining how it works:
This one’s dead-simple: I thought that I could build it in a day, it actually took a week, and the software exists to solve a really simple problem: Who’s running a deploy right now?
If your CI/CD game is sufficiently on-point, you don’t even need software to solve this problem - just push to master and let your automated systems carry you to production Valhalla. But my CI/CD game is not sufficiently on point. I want my deploy process to be fully automated but … human mediated.
In fact, you don’t need software to solve this problem at all. This problem is handily and easily solved by manually poking your slack channel’s “topic”.
All that being said, it seemed fun to build software for. And mergetato.com was available. So here we are.
Anyways, check it out maybe!
