Updates on Probo and Open Source

January 16, 2018

We built Probo from the ground up with open source software (OSS) as a top priority. Zivtech, the company that built and supports Probo, is an “OSS shop,” and our values are OSS to the core. We value open source in our own code and product as well as the OSS that the broader development community is building. We’re focused on making Probo free and easy to use for OSS developers via the Probo.ci SaaS app. 

Setting up a WPEngine Site with Probo

January 10, 2018

As a recent addition to the Zivtech team who doesn’t come from a technical background, I’ve been exposed to a lot of new technologies and terminologies. When our CEO assigned the task of getting a WPEngine site to work with Probo, I knew it would be a challenging learning experience.  With less technical expertise than many other WPEngine users, I was prepared for potential speed bumps along the way. 

Getting Started with Probo.CI for WordPress

December 8, 2017

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.

Probo web UI/UX updates

June 29, 2017

It's been about two years since we created Probo's initial UI designs. The UI and UX have served us well so far, but it's time for change!

The user experience for the app was originally developed mostly through intuition, like most brand new projects. We started off looking at other CI tools available, then modified what we found based on our needs.

New Probo features: Specific PHP Versions & .htaccess controls

June 16, 2017

We are excited to announce a couple new features for Probo customers this week: we now have 3 versions of our standard image to support various versions of PHP without having to run updates during the build process, and we now support .htaccess controls, to prevent unwanted viewing of your probo environments.
