Does Digital Ocean have something similar to Heroku Pipelines? (creating a link & new build per PR)

A company I work for is using Heroku Pipelines, and we want to switch hosts due to all issues we’ve been having with this “managed host”. If there is an easy built-in way to handle this, great, if not then I imagine Docker & the Digital Ocean API shouldn’t be too bad.

Hi there @patrickShark,

One option would be to use the new DigitalOcean App Platform. All you need to do to get it working is to link your GitHub account, specify your ENV variables, and then on every push to your main branch, it would trigger a downtimeless deploy process.

Here is a quick video demo of how this works:

Indeed another option is to use Docker and build your own CI/CD pipeline.
