How do I deploy 1 of the components of an app without deploying all of them

I have an app that has 2 components.

The first works perfectly, and I don’t need to change it. The second I am changing and deploying frequently as I figure out how to get it to work. Each time I make changes and press the Deploy button, both components build and deploy.

Is there a way for me to only deploy the 2nd component so that I don’t have to wait for the 1st (working) component to build each time?

Unfortunately this is not supported at this time. It is something we’re considering as multiple users have requested it. As a workaround you can update each component to use a different Git repo, but I realize this is not very convenient.

I am in a similar situation for which I have a “monitor worker”, which is used only to monitor and debug issues with the webserver. It would be convenient if I can turn on and off this worker independently of the working app.
