Divshot is shutting down: What are the alternatives?


#1

So I just logged into Divshot is merging into Firebase and shutting down in December, what are other solutions others are using to deploy their Ember apps?

I have had a so-so experience with Netlify, but curious if there is anything else.

Try this https://www.pagefronthq.com

And be sure to let us know how you like it :smile:

@lightblade What does it cost? I see nothing about pricing.


#4

I don’t know about the pricing as I never used it myself.

@elwayman02 May know more


#5

@brian_ally @lightblade PageFront is in private beta…completely free at this time. From what I understand, the only part of the current offering that will cost money outside of beta is custom domains, but beta users will be grandfathered in for free.


#6

Have you looked at Firebase hosting? Even before the Divshot acquisition it was pretty good; and there’s a free tier.


#7

FWIW, we use S3+CloudFront for assets and a VPS for the index.html (and all the other stuff such as API, background workers, etc.).


#8

I am trying to build a ember-cli-deploy-couchdb. It will allow you to upload to cloudant. It is free for most usecases. My bloggr example run direct from cloudant bloggr.exmer.com I can explain how to do this without the deploy now if it is interesting.


#9

There is also Surge.


#10

I’ve used Netlify, after leaving Divshot and seems pretty good so far. Big plus for me was that they offer also prerender.io as a service.


#11

Not sure if this is the kind of thing you’re looking for, but I built ember-superstatic to help with deploying Ember applications through Docker containers, using the same static asset server that Divshot uses (it’s based on their open-source static file server, Superstatic).
