Welcome to the Railway blog. If you haven't heard of us before (how did you end up here then?), we are attempting to build software development infrastructure for humans. We don't want you to have to worry about deployments, observability, clusters, or, even worse, dealing with Docker. Your job should simply be to work on your core product and we'll take care of the rest.
Have you ever had a killer idea and spent hours if not days and weeks just setting up your development environment and then had to fight another whole battle just to get the damn thing live? With Railway, all your environments live in the cloud. You can provision databases and services instantly without having to worry about configuring them for different environments. We've faced all the frustrations and problems you have and this is our attempt at solving them.
The Railway button
We built a button and we think it's pretty cool. The Railway button is our one-click way of cloning and deploying Github repositories on Railway. We have a bunch of starters that you can choose from and deploy to your own Railway account.
You can also configure your own Railway button by pointing it to any Github repository and specifying the plugins to install and the required environment variables. Once created, you can share it with your friends and/or teammates and they can deploy the application on Railway with no additional configuration required!
If you're curious about our blog, we've also published a detailed guide on getting a similar blog live using Notion as the CMS for your blog. We think it works great as anyone can go in and update the content on Notion and the changes are immediately reflected on the blog!
