Tugboat Pricing

How does Tugboat pricing work?

Tugboat’s pricing isn’t based on your account, number of users, or on external repositories; Tugboat is priced on a per-project basis.

When you Create a New Project in Tugboat, you’ll select a plan based on your Preview storage and build performance needs. You can then link as many external repositories as you’d like to that project, and add as many users as you’d like, all under the same plan.

If you later find your project doesn’t have enough storage, or your Preview build performance isn’t what you need it to be, you can always change your Tugboat project’s performance tier - without affecting your other Tugboat projects.

Calculating Project storage for Tugboat billing

Project storage is calculated by adding the size of all of the Previews contained in a Tugboat project. This includes any Base Previews, as well as additional Previews that have been built from the Base Previews. Tugboat calculates Preview sizes across all repositories contained in a project when determining project storage, which may be larger than what you see when you’re viewing an individual repository within Tugboat.

Storage in Repository Stats vs. Project Stats

Curious about why a Preview is larger than your git repository? The Preview size is the size of the entire container at the end of the Preview build process. If your Preview build is pulling in large assets, such as large databases or Service images, your resulting build size includes those assets - not only the code from your linked git repo. If you want to reduce your Preview size, take a look at our tips in: optimize your Preview builds.

How to view project storage

You can view how much storage you’ve used by going to your Project Dashboard, and looking at the Project Stats section:

  1. Go to username -> My Projects at the upper-right of the Tugboat dashboard.
  2. Select the project where you want to view disk space used.
  3. Scroll down to Project Stats.
