3 static web site hosting solutions - Day 2

Today I explored:

  • https://www.netlify.com/
    I couldn't get the git integration to work, but drag& drop was great, though they have both github and bitbucket integration
  • https://www.paperplane.io/
    You can login with twitter, facebook of github. The first one to support dropbox, great integration, simple, no docs but it just works! This is my favorite for the day, not because of feature, but because of its simplicity.
  • https://divshot.com/
    Very complete offering, drag&drop of zip files, or custom npm module, it supports environments and promotions between them. I couldn't find a way to restore previous version, but you can download them and redeploy. Though it is missing deploy form git. This is probably the most advanced offering I have explored so far.
