New feature: Regenerate your API key

We know a lot of you are concerned about security and sometimes you want to make sure you have control over your API keys for SpeedCurve. We added the ability for you to regenerate your API key on demand in your Team settings. As an org admin, navigate to Admin-> Teams and select the team you want to edit. From there, you'll see the option 'GENERATE NEW API KEY'. Just click & confirm and you're all set!

Performance testing in CI: Let's break the build!

Raise your hand if you've ever poured countless hours into making a fast website, only to have it slowly degrade over time. New features, tweaks, and Super Important Tracking Snippets all pile up and slow things down. At some point you'll be given permission to "focus on performance" and after many more hours, the website will be fast again. But a few months later, things start to slow again. The cycle repeats.

What if there was a way that you could prevent performance from degrading in the first place? Some sort of performance gateway that only allows changes to production code if they meet performance requirements? I think it's time we talked about having performance regressions break the build.

Import Settings via the API

Added /import endpoint to API which lets you update your settings via a JSON config. Great if you want to keep your settings in version control or programmatically update frequently changing URLs.

Visual diffs on every deploy

SpeedCurve now provides a visual diff of every deploy. A full resolution PNG is captured for each URL and each pixel is diffed with the previous deploy allowing you to easily spot any visual changes you may or may not have expected.

The key to practising safe continuous deployment is to have a robust set of tools that give you immediate feedback on how your code has changed between deploys and its effect on the user experience. It's often very hard to spot all the visual changes in each deploy, especially in fast moving teams where a lot of the focus is on unit tests and other automated pass/fail systems. Visual diffs bring an increased level of tracking and confidence when you're able to compare any two deploys and see exactly what has visually changed.

We do a visual diff every time you click "Test Now" on the Deploy dashboard or you use the SpeedCurve API to trigger a round of deploy testing. Integrating with the Deploy API is super easy and provides a robust set of metrics and before/after screenshots, visual diffs, waterfall charts, filmstrips and videos for each deploy. You can then compare any two deploys to see exactly what's changed over time.
