Introducing Draft changesThis week at Sturdy

Gustav WestlingMarch 10, 2022

Hey everyone! In this week's update I would like to share with you an update to the Sturdy workflow with Draft changes, as well as the release of Sturdy for Linux. Today is also an exciting day for us because we are launching Sturdy on Product Hunt!

📝 Draft changes

We felt that workspaces in Sturdy were sometimes unnecessarily complex. For example, after you merge the code in your workspace, should you continue working in the same workspace or create a new one?

Drafts replace Workspaces. Here's how they work:

  • All code changes start from a Draft
  • If a Draft is empty, it's name will be italic, and it will not be visible to others
  • Drafts with code updates are discoverable in the app sidebar
  • Whenever a Draft is merged, it simply becomes a Change entry in the Changelog

This change makes the 'develop — collaborate — integrate' loop even tighter. In addition, as a team you will no longer have to search which workspaces have relevant changes.

We would love to hear what you think! Feel free to drop us a message on Discord.

🚀 Launching on Product Hunt

It is always very exciting to share Sturdy with the wider developer community. It also drives us to think how to better describe what we stand for.

Today we are launching Sturdy on Product Hunt! Check out the workflow video and screenshots that we shared :). We would also be very thankful for your upvote there 🙏❤️!

🐧 Sturdy on Linux

The Sturdy desktop client 🐥 now has a Linux 🐧 version! We had a number of users asking for it, and now we have finally added .deb and .rpm distributions on our download page.

This means that Sturdy is now available for Mac, Windows, and Linux!

🎙 Kodsnack podcast (in Swedish)

I had the pleasure of talking about Sturdy, version control, and our vision for code collaboration on the Kodsnack podcast.

Fredrik had some great questions and the conversation was a lot of fun! It is in Swedish, and you can check it out here.


Thanks for reading, and until the next post!
— Gustav and team Sturdy
