Getting Started Migration

Road to Sunsetting

As we continue developing the new Fleek Platform we wanted to share more information about what the process of shutting down our legacy platform will look like. Phases

To be more organized we are separating the road towards sunsetting the old platform in different sequential phases that help us to ensure that the migration is up to our standards and every user has a fantastic experience leading into the new platform.

Deploy sites and configure custom domains

This is our current stage where users can interact with our SDK and CLI to store files in IPFS, deploy their sites, and configure custom domains on top of it.

Release of the Beta UI

The next phase involves releasing the beta UI of the new platform which will allow us to replicate all the features available in the CLI to the UI for those users who prefer this type of interface. During this phase, we will be collecting feedback actively and setting the groundwork for customer support moving forward.

Final feature parity

While we collect feedback and optimize the UI flows we will be focusing on finishing the features that are needed to complete the feature parity, out of all the missing pieces these are the two key ones:

  • Git connection: Connecting with GitHub tools to grant access to the platform to download and perform deployments directly from a repository.
  • Custom Deployments: Right now the build before the upload is being done on the users end, with this feature Fleek will collect the source code and run the build on our infrastructure controlling all the process

Release Fleek Platform V1

Once feature parity is achieved we will be releasing to the public what we will know as Fleek Platform V1, the first stable version that will run in parallel with the old platform for a small period of time. At this phase, we will be stopping signups on and offering all the user's migration tools to request to move all their relevant data to Final sunset of and automatic migration of remaining users.

After a prudent time of co-existence between the platforms and when the goals of these processes are met we will be shutting down and automatically migrate the missing users that didn't request them by themselves.
