I know there are a lot of programmers/developers who frequent this forum, so I thought I'd let you know about a new tool that I've help build. In short, it's a deployment tool that automatically takes your code that you've pushed up to GitHub and will SSH in for you and do a git pull on your production server. The name of the tool is "Repoman" and you can find it here: https://repoman.io/
- right now, it's offering a free 3-month trial for a premium account. Once the free trial runs out, there is still a free basic plan available, or if you need more than 1 site or server you can opt for a $4/month plan or a $8/month plan to stick with premium. Any feedback or suggestions are welcome!
I can give you a good case scenario for using Repoman from today in connection with this forum. An astute member of the forum pointed out a bug to me, so I made a quick fix. It took me 30 minutes though to look up my SSH credentials (as I have a lot of them at this point), actually SSH in, CD around, and do a git pull. If I had Repoman set up for this site, I would have had 30 more minutes back today. As you can imagine, multiple sites, multiple servers, that 30 minutes turns into a lot of time over the course of your career, not to mention the headache of keeping all of your credentials organized. In any case, feel free to check it out if you're interested!
