Deployer is a powerful yet simple Git web hook and deployment activator for continuous integration.
Over the past weeks, I’ve been looking at Continunous Integration hook services to help me in creating automation to build and deploy my Packfire Framework applications to my server. Many, however, requires more server resources and installation process than what I really needed. Hence, I came up with Deployer.
Deployer has a rather simple and straight-forward workflow, relies only on common open-software such as Git and PHP and is cross-platform compatible (yes, Windows too). No complicated setup or configuration required. Best of all, it currently works with two major Git hosting service provider: Github and Bitbucket.
With Deployer, I was able to automatically deploy with control. Each time I push to Github or Bitbucket, my websites gets updated soonafter - no need of SSH or FTP access (reduces security risk if you’re not using FTP over secure channel).
