Today we’re excited to announce that front-end web hosting service Divshot has joined Firebase!
Both teams share a passion for creating fantastic developer experiences, and now we’re moving forward together toward that common goal. Divshot and Firebase have teamed up before: Firebase sponsored Divshot’s Static Showdown hackathon and was used by more than 50 percent of the developers who participated.
As a cofounder of Divshot, I’m excited to bring the best parts of Divshot’s technology to Firebase Hosting. We’re launching a brand new Firebase command-line interface today with a local static web server powered by Divshot’s open-source Superstatic library. Now you can develop locally with all of your rewrites, redirects, and other Firebase Hosting options. There’s more on the way, so stay tuned!
Moving forward the team will be fully focused on making Firebase Hosting a fantastic developer experience, so Divshot will shut down existing products and services on Monday, December 14, 2015. For existing Divshot customers, we have a detailed migration guide to help you easily transition to Firebase Hosting. The transition should be quick and painless (especially because many of you are already Firebase developers!).
I want to thank every Divshot user for their support over the past three years. I’ve been blown away by your creativity and community spirit, and I can’t wait to see what you all build next.
