Git pull powered deployment solution
Zero downtime redeploys of websites or services pulled down from a git repo.
Works with HTTP, Websockets and raw TCP.
Create a new proxy that pulls
ghub.io from github and serves it
8000. The website's stdout and stderr will be printed on the
var Proxy = require'pull-proxy';var proxy ='git://github.com/juliangruber/ghub.io.git'__dirname + '/repos';proxycreateManagementServerlisten8001;proxycreateProxyServerlisten8000;proxystdoutpipeprocessstdout;proxystderrpipeprocessstderr;
The site is served at
Then, when you want to redeploy, send a special request to the management server that listens on port 8001:
If you want to insert extra steps into the deployment process, like running
npm install, listen to the

All listeners for the
source event muss call
done() when finished.
Redeploy, and optionally overwrite
branch, which defaults to
remote, which defaults to the remote you passed to the
Authentication is basically up to you, since this only gives you a node core http server. Some easy ways would be to wrap the http server in something that does basic auth, or to make it listen on a unix socket that's only accessible via ssh.

Turn off zero downtime deploys. This way there's always only one instance of the site running.
Create a http server for managing the proxy.
Create a http server that proxies requests to your site and ensures zero downtime redeploys.
Readable streams that contain the stdout or stderr from the spawned childprocess of the website that is being proxied to.
