James Morris' Blog:
Deploy a Silex App Using Git Push
July 05, 2012 @ 09:35:40

James Morris has a new post to his blog showing you how you can deploy a Silex-based application via git and a post-receive hook on the server side.

Up until a few days ago I used to use a small bash deployment script to deploy a few simple sites to my live box. The process was a git archive and extract, then an rsync to the live site. Only inspecting it recently I realised that rsync no longer sent just the changes but all of the files, I'd never noticed before as the sites were so small the deploy was over very quickly. The rsync used to work fine before as I would deploy my current working code where the timestamps on files would match the server. Since I started using git at home for dev, the git archive method timestamps the files with the latest commit's timestamp. This messes up rsync.

His process involves a checked in version of Silex, a development branch, a push of the code to the live machine and an install script to set up Silex. He includes the "technical breakdown" and the information needed to replicate it - the .gitignore, setting up password-less SSHing, setting up the server and creating the git post-receive hook (a bash script).
