Git deployment utility script.

Merges the master branch to another branch and pushes it.

Developed by Flow Pilots: http://www.flowpilots.com/

Usage

You can install the latest version via npm:

$ npm install -g deploy-to

Go to your git repository and invoke the script:

$ cd /path/to/my/repo
$ deploy-to production

This will:

  1. Check that node_modules is in .gitignore (if present).
  2. Switch to the target branch.
  3. Pull the latest version of that branch.
  4. Merge the master branch into this branch.
  5. Push the branch.

    In this case it would merge any changes from master onto the production branch and push them upstream. Add git hooks to the server to perform further deployment steps.

Rationale

At Flow Pilots, we develop our work on a master branch. Deployment to servers happens using git commit hooks on the deployment and staging branches. This script makes deployment a command-line one-liner.
