One of the more popular services that has to come to WordPress within the last year or so is the ability to integrate Git into your theme, plugin, and/or application development workflow.
And why shouldn’t it?
Services like GitHub and Bitbucket are responsible for the rise of Git, has introduced many people to source control (who I wonder if they’d ever use it), and then third-party services have made it possible for other people to connect their repository to another environment and deploy the changes.
It completely cuts out the middle-man of S/FTP and makes sure that we’re able to deploy true changesets of our work so that the code that’s sitting in our staging (or even production) areas are as updated as possible.
Introducing WP Pusher
Sure, there are a number of services out there that do this type of thing; however, I’m glad that we have a plethora of choices from which to choose when it comes to things like this.
Case in point: Check out WP Pusher. Straight from the site:
Take the pain out of WordPress development. Deploy directly from GitHub or Bitbucket and never again copy files over FTP. It works everywhere – even on cheap shared hosting!
Sounds great, right?
But what about those of you who are just getting familiar with source control, GitHub or Bitbucket, deployments, and all of that stuff?
What does all of the above stuff even mean?
Simply put, it means that each time you commit something to your repository from your local computer, you’ll be able to login to your WordPress dashboard and then perform a deployment of the update with the click of a button.
Not bad, huh?
Get a Copy For Free!
And the pricing is reasonable enough based on your needs. In fact, it ranges from free to $199/year.
So here’s the thing: Peter, the developer of WP Pusher, has been kind enough to offer a giveaway for the following…
- 1 Agency License
- 2 Freelancer Licenses
- …both of which are valid for one year
Interested? All you have to do is comment below and say so. Don’t mention which type of license you’d like as I’ll leave that up to the randomness of choosing the winners.
From there, in a week, I’ll pick the winner at random and then contact you via email and put you in touch with Peter. Please remember to leave your email address in the comments so that I can contact you once the contest is over.
Alright – have fun, good luck, and all that fun stuff :).
