Push to deploy

A new git feature for super fast blogging

Posted on Thursday, 19 February, 2015

I've just upgraded git on my remote host to 2.3.0

As noted in a recent article on GitHub's blog, this version has a feature called 'push to deploy' whereby you run the following config command in your remote repository.

git config receive.denyCurrentBranch updateInstead

I've got this working, so now in order to publish a blog article such as this, I do the following :-

  • Edit the markdown file in Emacs
  • Use Magit to commit and push

That's about as easy as I want it to be.
