What a summer! We've launched a few connector APIs and tutorials, and we're happy to keep shipping content and feature releases. This week we're really excited to launch a new big addition to Standard Library, Deploy from GitHub. With Deploy from GitHub, Standard Library workflow templates are super easy to share with anybody without requiring them to manually set up workflows — just click our deploy button!

Deploy from GitHub

We've added a Deploy from GitHub button that anybody can add to their READMEs on GitHub projects. Simply visit deploy.stdlib.com for instructions, or add the following code snippet to any public GitHub repository:

[<img src="https://deploy.stdlib.com/static/images/deploy.svg" width="192">](https://deploy.stdlib.com/)

You'll end up with something that looks like this:

Deploy from GitHub in README

Using the GitHub Button to Deploy on Standard Library

To provide an example of deploying from GitHub, we've set up a basic Slack application that requires no coding to get started with — even to connect to Slack! You can visit the README here:

GitHub: stdlib-examples/project-slack-ping

Once you click the Deploy from GitHub button, you'll be brought to a screen that looks like this:

Deploy on Build

Simply click Link Resource and then Deploy Project to proceed! Note that you'll probably still need to create the /echo command on your Slack app, so please refer to the README for a quick primer on how to do so. You'll end up with your very own Ping bot on Slack!


Thank you!

That's all for now! We'll be leveraging Deploy from GitHub significantly as we continue to grow — expect another update shortly! As usual, If you'd like support from our community, please join our Slack workspace. You can also follow us on Twitter, @StdLibHQ.

😎 Keep it cool and keep building. Let us know what you come up with!
