GH-pages-deploy

NPM

Deploy straight to github pages with one simple command.

Usage

# install it from npm and symlink it into your PATH
npm install gh-pages-deploy -g

# now run it!
gh-pages-deploy

You can also use npm run to package it with your app without installing it globally.

First add this to your scripts section of package.json:

  "scripts": {
    "deploy": "gh-pages-deploy",
    "clean-source": "rimraf README.md src webroot package.json"
  },

And then install gh-pages-deploy as a devDependency:

npm install gh-pages-deploy --save-dev

And now you can run npm run deploy to run the gh-pages-deploy installed in the local node_modules folder (even if you have never done npm install gh-pages-deploy -g).

You can also provide a custom commit message via command line argument:

  "scripts": {
    "deploy": "gh-pages-deploy -- 'A custom commit message'",
  },

Options

To configure gh-pages-deploy all you need to do is specify a couple of things in your package.json (all of which are optional)

  "gh-pages-deploy": {
    "staticpath": "dist",
    "cname": "nope.org",
    "prep": [
      "build-sass",
      "optimize-img"
    ],
    "commit": "a custom commit message",
    "post": [
      "clean-source"
    ],
    "noprompt": false
  },
 
  • "staticpath" path to your files to be copied over to the root directory
  • "cname" content for CNAME file
  • "prep" an array of script names to run before pushing to github, this can be any script that you have declared in your "scripts" object in your package.json.
  • "commit" a custom commit message to be used when committing to git
  • "post" an array of script names to run after "prep", but before add/commit/push
  • "noprompt" if this is set to true, the prompt will be bypassed and you will never need to confirm the commands before deploying.

About

This repo uses gh-pages-deploy. Checkout the gh-pages branch and the result at http://davejustice.com/gh-pages-deploy/.

This was inspired after a conversation with max ogden regarding the setup of the Code For Portland Jekyll Pages. Inspired by the leveldb.org repository, I wanted an easier way for people to generate static pages and deploy to github without being tied to just jekyll.
