    How developers use Divshot and Surge
    Keen uses
    Divshot

    Keen uses Divshot to host internal and customer-facing analytics dashboards. We develop locally with the Divshot CLI and then use it to deploy. It’s great to have one tool that does both. The web interface is handy when you can’t get to the command line. Overall we’re really happy with Divshot – our static site workflow is better and more accessible than ever!
