Changelog #59 - Exclude files to trigger Deployments with .koyebignore, Add Instance replica index, and more

Hello, and welcome to this week’s changelog update! Let’s jump into what’s new:

  1. Exclude files to trigger Deployments with .koyebignore

    You can now include a .koyebignore file in your Git repository to specify files and directories that should not trigger a new deployment. For instance, if you add tests/ and to the .koyebignore file, changes performed in the tests directory and to the file will not trigger a new deployment.

  2. Add Instance replica index

    A new Koyeb variable, KOYEB_REPLICA_INDEX, is now available on every Instance to easily identify the replica index to which an Instance is assigned. This is particularly useful for identifying an Instance that plays a leader role and completes specific tasks in a distributed system architecture.

  3. New tutorial: How to Deploy Strapi as a Content Backend and Headless CMS on Koyeb

    We published a new tutorial on deploying Strapi on Koyeb. Strapi is a headless CMS that helps you build content-based sites with the frontend of your choice by providing a reliable, customizable API backend. You can even deploy it with one click.
