In less than a year Laravel Shift, the tool that automatically upgrades your Laravel app to the latest version, has upgraded over 1,000 applications.
In the announcement post, Jason shares some details on the history of the product and how he is developing this project through preset milestones.
Its features were deliberately limited until I proved the product. Proof came in preset milestones of 100, 250, 500, and 1,000 Shifts. Each time Shift reached a milestone, I would spend more time either fixing bugs, adding minor features, or releasing new Shifts.
By reaching the 1,000 milestone he is going to be adding support for upgrading Laravel Packages as well as a new “human services” feature for those that want a personal service. Also, coming soon is a new design for the Shift brand and a new dashboard to manage all the Shift’s you have purchased.
It is a great service and I recently used Laravel Shift to upgrade this site a few weeks ago, the process worked flawless for me and I was impressed how easy it was.
