makes software development remarkably productive
by combining the Git workflow with a powerful user interface — making it
effortless to review and collaborate on code with your team.
Today, we are proud to announce our first-class integration with GitLab, Now for GitLab
Now makes it easy for you to build and deploy code — whether you need serverless lambdas
a static website, or both combined.
If you use GitLab in your development workflow, you can take advantage of
Now for GitLab
and get automatic deployments with
built-in CI/CD, DNS and TLS.
Before a feature branch is merged and deployed to production, it can be valuable
for your team to be able to test progressive iterations via staging deployments.
With Now for GitLab
, staging deployments are automatically
taken care of, on every push — once your GitLab project is linked to Now.
Commits pushed to GitLab are automatically built and deployed with Now.
With only a few steps, you can set up automatic deployments to Now via GitLab:
- Connect to GitLab with one click and link your project.
git push to your project triggers a Now deployment with a unique URL.
- The default branch
master) gets aliased to your chosen domain names.
The first step in setting up the Now for GitLab
is to Connect with GitLab
. This makes the integration available to
your GitLab projects, and, as an additional benefit, it also allows you to Log In
to via GitLab
To get started, visit the accounts page
on your individual
or team ZEIT
account, and click the Connect with GitLab
The Connect with GitLab button helps you connect your individual or team account with GitLab.
When GitLab requests an authorization, click Authorize.
Click Authorize to complete the GitLab connection process.
Once you authorize GitLab, it redirects you back to ZEIT. This completes the
account connection process, and you automatically activate the ability to Login with GitLab
the next time.
Once you connect GitLab, you also activate the ability to Log In to ZEIT with GitLab.
After your GitLab account is connected through the ZEIT accounts page
you can set up automatic deployments for a GitLab project by linking it to Now, with the help of a dropdown.
Select the GitLab project you would like to link to, from the provided dropdown.
Once linked, pushes made to the GitLab project will be automatically deployed with Now.
Once linked, the GitLab project is set up for automatic Now deployments.

file is missing for a project, we instead deploy the project as a static directory.
By default, we deploy every push. This means that every
git push done to a Merge
Request branch is deployed — allowing collaborators to preview staging changes
before they're merged and deployed to production.
Within a Merge Request, if Now is still building a commit from a previous push,
that build is cancelled in favor of the most recently pushed commit. This allows
collaborators the quickest access to fresh changes.
When an alias
is specified in the
file, introducing changes to the
causes the deployment to be aliased automatically, as soon as the deployment completes
All the aliases are immediately made live, with no extra steps necessary.
If the default branch
receives a commit reverting changes, an instant rollback
is performed on the aliases. When you
deploy with Now, we map all your code and configuration to a single, unique URL and a new build
is only performed when the underlying code receives changes
. If you trigger a
revert within GitLab
on the default branch
the code and configuration perfectly matches a deployment URL Now previously had. This allows us
to perform the alias within milliseconds
Our mission at ZEIT
is to make the cloud accessible for everyone. The
Now for GitLab
integration was one of our most requested
features. We are excited about this announcement, and hope that it makes your
development workflow smoother.
All of our work is heavily driven by feedback from our users. For feature requests,
