Probo Docker Images Restructure

Probo uses pre-built Docker images to power the docker containers that run each Probo build. These Probo Docker images were previously provisioned using Puppet, which is a tool we’ve used at Zivtech for server provisioning for a long time. Over the last year, we switched to using Ansible to provision these images, which was a fairly smooth transition after we figured out the new Ansible syntax. Overall, Ansible has made our Probo image builder code cleaner and easier to manage.

We’re focused on making Probo free and easy to use for OSS developers via the Probo.ci SaaS app.

We often talk about Probo in regards to Drupal development because we do a lot of Drupal work at Zivtech. We originally built Probo to eliminate bottlenecks in our development workflow on our Drupal projects, but it can also be used to test any PHP and MySQL based application like WordPress or any other LAMP based CMS platforms.
