Collaborative development workflow with Local for Teams

Local by Flywheel has become the gold-standard in WordPress development, designed to help you create the best workflow in the world. There’s been one piece missing, however, that’s essential for development workflows all around the world: collaboration.

Which is why we’re beyond excited to announce Local for Teams: Everything you love about Local, crafted for easy collaboration (plus a few other incredible perks)!

This new paid addition integrates perfectly with Organizations on Flywheel, so everyone on your team can work together to develop something great.

Here’s what you’ll find in Local for Teams!

Deploy 5x faster with MagicSync

Thanks to our one-of-a-kind, differential deployment technology (MagicSync!), Local for Teams deploys up to 5x faster than other development tools. It syncs only the files that have changed since your last push or pull, taking seconds instead of minutes!

MagicSync intelligently recommends files to push (or pull) by indexing your Local site with its connected site on Flywheel. It also brings GIT-like features to Local for the first time, and allows you to include (or exclude) whatever files you need thanks to a user-friendly viewer.

Push to staging before production

The perfect development workflow is now truly here! With Local for Teams, you can choose to push to production or staging, giving your team more flexibility and another space for testing before going live. Or if you need more time for major changes, pull the site back from staging without ever disrupting your production environment!

Assign user roles and management

Keep your team productive and organized with new user roles in your Organization. For the developers, you can assign who has access to push/pull to staging or production. For the non-devs on your team, you can block access to Local sites completely.

(Stay tuned for even more user roles coming very soon!)

Get premium support for Local

Don’t worry about leaving Local to find answers to your questions. With Local for Teams, everyone in your workspace can submit support tickets directly from the app to Flywheel’s talented team of WordPress experts.

Submitting a ticket from Local will also send along important diagnostic logs/data to help us resolve your issue faster. Need in-depth support? We can remote into your computer and troubleshoot your Local for Teams installation.

Looking ahead

We believe in empowering teams to build the next generation of themes, plugins, Gutenberg blocks, and WordPress core features that will deliver world-changing digital experiences. Local for Teams marks an acceleration of that vision and lays the groundwork for a redefining 2019.
