Did you know the ENTIRE Fleek platform is deployed using the Fleek platform? Yes, we are actually using Fleek on a daily basis to deploy our platform on IPFS. We are our own alpha testers, beta testers and users.
Let’s see what that entails, and how you can do the same!
We integrate Fleek in our deployment flow in order to push new deploys on IPFS. Those deployments are done automatically.
In effect, Fleek supports automated deployments by watching the corresponding Github repo and branch. In our case, we have private repos for the app and public repos for the blog, docs and the main page (see Fleek’s github repos).
That means anytime we make a new blog post, fix a bug, make a new feature, update our docs, etc… the Fleek platform takes care of the deployment for us.
When we say our ENTIRE platform, we do mean the entire platform, and our platform is subdivided in four major components.
- The Fleek main page: https://fleek.co
- The Fleek documentation: https://docs.fleek.co
- The Fleek blog: https://blog.fleek.co
- The Fleek app: https://app.fleek.co
All four components are on IPFS and are deployed automatically.
Of course, since Fleek uses IPFS, that sweet, sweet IPFS hash changes everytime a new deployment occurs. That is is why we use IPNS to have an immutable link to our mutable content.
Below are the IPNS links of Fleek’s fours components, which also showcases our support for the DNS Link, a feature which maps IPNS to a traditional DNS domain.
- The Fleek main page: https://ipfs.io/ipns/fleek.co
- The Fleek documentation: https://ipfs.io/ipns/docs.fleek.co
- The Fleek blog: https://ipfs.io/ipns/blog.fleek.co
- The Fleek app: https://ipfs.io/ipns/app.fleek.co
You can look at our platform to see the range of sites that can be deployed on Fleek: from beautiful landing pages, to informative blogs, practical docs and even complex commercial applications such our Fleek app.
In the end, Fleek does this through a Fleek account which is the same type of account that our users can create.
In other words, if we did it, you can do it too!
So don’t hesitate to use Fleek to deploy your next project and, of course, share your creations with us on twitter!
