With today’s release, we’re excited to give teams more control over LayerVault’s various email and app notifications. A new Notifications tab is now available from your Account Settings.
It has been a busy week at LayerVault and the updates continue to roll out. We’ve released a number of features, bug fixes, speed enhancements, and video tutorials. Let’s review some of the highlights:
Basecamp is one of the leading project management services out there. It’s famously targeted at the “Fortune 5,000,000” according to its founders. It hardly needs an introduction.
Today, we’ve published a video showing off how LayerVault integrates with Basecamp. It’s now easier than ever to keep stakeholders in sync on LayerVault and Basecamp. See the help page for detailed instructions or watch the video below.
Much of modern software is built using GitHub. We at LayerVault use GitHub to manage our code, and use our own product to manage our designs.
Using GitHub with LayerVault is common but undocumented, so we put together a video tutorial showing it off. There’s also now a useful help page that you can reference or send to your teammates.
Both layer comps and assets in PSDs have been rendered for LayerVault using PSD.rb for a long time now. However, one big missing feature has been the lack of gradients created with layer styles.
The LayerVault API is a powerful interface for interacting with our service. It’s what our Mac app uses to shuttle files between your teammates. We’re always adding to it, and we just added a nice new feature: an endpoint for public projects.
Using the LayerVault API, you can now request a list of public projects. Go wild!
