Pilothouse 0.1.0 has just been released on NPM. The Bash-based Pilothouse is now deprecated.
The NodeJS version of Pilothouse is a complete rewrite, with a number of exciting improvements, but also some breaking changes from older Bash-based versions of Pilothouse.
There are a few notable things you should be aware of:
- Pilothouse is now managed by NPM. Instead of pulling down the latest commits using git from the Pilothouse repo in order to update to a new version, simply run
npm update -g pilothouse.
- All sites now have SSL support automatically available out-of-the-box. You no longer need to generate an SSL certificate on a per-site basis.
- All site’s Nginx configurations are now generated dynamically for each local site. While you shouldn’t normally need to override the auto-generated config, advanced users can do so if desired.
- All site-specific settings, such as the config.yml settings file or the site-specific nginx override config file are now contained in the site’s root directory.
- The Pilothouse service configuration directory is now
~/.pilothouse. Any configuration file overrides should be placed there.
