Probo Update: The Probo Shell is Live

September 19, 2018

The Probo team is excited to announce that the Probo Shell is live!

Previously, users could only run and change the code in the probo.yaml files and view the results from the outside.

Now with the Probo Shell, users can connect directly to their build container with SSH, as well as view logs quickly all within the Probo.CI App. This means developers can view or change settings even after the build has completed.

Challenges to DevOps Implementation

September 4, 2018

We want to ensure the least amount of confusion, issues, and downtime for our customers during this transition. Hopefully this post clears up some of the questions or concerns any of you may have.

Why Probo is Great for Marketers

March 29, 2018

As Zivtech’s Marketing Manager, I’m by far not the most technical member of our staff. Since the developers see our website from a different perspective than I do, it’s sometimes challenging to communicate the changes that the marketing team would like to see. I can explain an idea, but I won’t necessarily know how it will look once it’s executed. This is where Probo comes in. 

Probo Docker Images Restructure

March 16, 2018

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.
