Build Status

Tiny little connect middleware to mount and auto-deploy apps from a git repository. Pretty cool.

$ npm install connect-girror

The sample below "mounts" the GitHub repository https://github.com/eladb/foo into the /foo route on the connect/express server. When the program is started, girror is used to check out a local copy of this repository and spinner is used to spawn app.js from this repository and keep it alive. HTTP requests into this route are proxied using http-proxy into the child app.

var connect = require('connect');
var girror = require('connect-girror');

var app = connect.createServer();
app.use('/foo', girror('https://github.com/eladb/foo'));
app.get('/', function(req, res) {
  res.end('Nothing to see here. Try /foo\n');
});
app.listen(5000);

A working example is available under samples (start with node server).
