Continuous Deployments on Non Essential Projects


Quite a while ago now I was introduced to tools like Renovate and Greenkeeper, at the time I thought they were awesome, keeping your projects patches and secure so I went and used them in every project I made.

Busy work

That was an incredible PITA (Pain in the Arse)

So what have I learned

Using Renovate may sound like a good idea, everything is kept current

But if you have a lot of projects with a dependency that has high release rates or that you use in every project (Gatsby, Prettier) then when update time comes there’s a lot of ‘busy work’ involved.
