Live updates

Dependabot can now create pull requests for you the minute new dependency versions are released. ⚡️

We've just released a new dependency update schedule option: "live". If you select it (from the drop-down menu to the right of the "Bump now" button) you'll receive dependency update pull requests in real time.

We're keeping Dependabot's default update schedule as "daily" because for most use cases we don't think you want dependency updates in the middle of the day. Live updates are there if you want them, though.

Note: For now the "live" update schedule is not available for Docker, Java, or git submodule dependencies.


Dependabot helps keep your dependencies up-to-date. It's free for personal accounts and open source, and always will be.
