We live in the age of agile workflows. Git is preferred over FTP. Especially with the advent of JAMstack and services like AWS Amplify and Netlify; developers only want to git commit && git push and expect their products to be deployed globally.
It’s been a minute since I worked on a WordPress project, but for the last year or so, I’ve been fantasizing about a git-based plugin deployments workflow that will allow me to get away from those old SVN repositories finally.
I see dealing with SVN as a DevOps task. Something web developers should not be concerned with, in 2020. Web developers want to build websites. They want to use Git to do that. With JAMstack, everyone has become accustomed to the idea of pushing a git commit and getting the new build/release. That’s why I built WP Continuous Deployment.
Use wp-continuous-deployment to set up an instant GitHub to WordPress.org SVN deployment pipeline with incredibly powerful GitHub Actions. A true commit-deploy workflow with complex dev-ops done for you.
So, here it is. I just built one. wp-continuous-deployment is a Node.js based CLI script. It automates everything you need to set up an instant, continuous deployment pipeline with GitHub Actions; for your WordPress plugins.
