Hi fellow Bubblers,
Occasionally folks will inquire about Bubble’s underlying performance, inevitably leading to someone pointing out the Status page.
I thought it would be cool to build a notification tool for tracking the status page proactively so I gave it a shot. After building out a prototype in Bubble itself I realized that was inherently silly (because if Bubble’s down for some reason…) and had to refactor it outside of the platform.
That was a task in itself as I’m no programmer, but I managed to cobble together a working version by combining Apifier + Zapier with a little elbow grease and I am happy with the result. You can sign up at https://christoff12.github.io/bubble-popped/ to receive an email any time the status changes to anything other than “All Systems Operational.” At the moment I am checking the page every 15 minutes for updates.
Ideas for extending:
- Mirroring the additional communication channels Status.io provides (SMS, Slack, etc.)
- Stitch together a status dashboard of commonly used services that expose a public status page
- Allow users to subscribe to a digest of notifications across popular services (versus individual emails for each)
What do you all think? Is this something that could be helpful/useful?
