New app Frontend

We have some exciting news: we just launched a complete refactoring of the app fronted. This was an important milestone for us to prepare for upcoming features and improvements.

What has changed?

We have combined repositories and backups into one advanced list view, from where you can see all your GitHub repositories and the associated backup in one place.

The list view is now separated into 3 sections:

  • Repositories without backups, so you have all repositories you might want to backup in one place
  • Active, showing all repositories with active daily recurring backups
  • Inactive, showing all repositories which have a backup but are not recurring or don’t have connection to the original repository at GitHub. For instance, repositories become inactive automatically once you delete the original repository at GitHub. You can keep inactive repositories at BackHub as an archive. In case BackHub does have a connection to the original repository, you have the option to restart daily recurring backups.


Besides the major change in the list view, we have also integrated a filter for forks, which has been requested quite often.

We hope you like the new interface. If you have any suggestions for improvement, please drop us a line.

What’s next?

This refactoring was important for us to be able to deliver further improvements faster. We are now working on a new feature that will backup all new repositories in your GitHub account automatically.

Stay tuned.
