Stacksmith Update: Slack Integration, More Stacks

A new version of Stacksmith is now live, with several new features designed to improve its usefulness in container-oriented application delivery environments. If you're new to Stacksmith, check it out, or learn more about our recently released features:

Slack Integration

Stacksmith now has the capability of sending notifications to Slack when your stack or any component of it (runtime, framework, or OS) has an update available.

Whether you are committed to fully automated Slack Ops practices, or just use it for communication, this is a great way to let your team know that an update is available and actionable.

New Application Development Runtimes and Frameworks

We've recently added several new development runtimes and frameworks to make it easier to build a full container-based application using Stacksmith.

The most recent additions include CodeIgniter, Jetty, Apache, NGINX, MariaDB, Redis, memcahed, MongoDB, Wildfly, and PostgresSQL.

In addition to being available through the web UI, they're also available via through the API to allow for integration with your CI/CD and deployment platforms.

As of today, the complete list of Stacksmith-supported runtimes and frameworks is the following:

Java, Node, PHP, Ruby, GO, Tomcat, Express, Symfony, Rails, Debian, Ubuntu, Python, Django, CodeIgniter, Jetty, Apache, Nginx, MariaDB, Redis, Memcached, MongoDB, WildFly, PostgreSQL
