deploy-from-npm

Continuous deployment tool using npm.

Watches npm for all updates to top level dependencies, then if there's a match it runs tests, upgrades your app and fires your restart command.

Usage

$ cd my-service
 
$ # use something like psy or forever to run your service
$ npm install -g psy
$ psy start -n my-service -- npm start
 
$ # use deploy-from-npm to restart it once a dependency has been updated
$ npm install -g deploy-from-npm
$ deploy-from-npm . "psy restart my-service"

And in general:

$ deploy-from-npm
 
Usage:
 
  $ deploy-from-npm DIR RELOAD
 
Example:
 
  $ deploy-from-npm /srv/my-service "kill $server-pid"
 

Installation

$ npm install -g deploy-from-npm

This was @mafintosh's idea, I'm just implementing it.
