Kamila's Git Hooks

Git hooks enable you to do things when something happens in a Git repo. My favorite use is "push to deploy": when I push new commits to a server, it will compile the thing and deploy a new version into production. Therefore:

  • finding out what is deployed in production is trivial
  • deploying a new release is trivial
    • and therefore there is little incentive to do horrible things like ssh-ing into prod and hotfixing things there :-)

I use it everywhere, because I have made it trivial to set up by writing it down :-)

How to

[on server] set up repo:

# on server
cd _git  # I keep all my bare repos here
git clone --bare <url>  # if it's not there yet
cd <repo>/hooks
ln -s ../../git-hooks/post-receive-<something> ./post-receive
vim ./  # maybe -- see post-receive-<something>
# in my case, probably ln -s ../../git-hooks/examples/<repo>/ .

[in work repo] set up remote:

git remote add <name> ssh://kamila@<server>/home/kamila/_git/<repo>.git

Now you can type git push <name> master and watch your build/deploy :-)

Optionally, set up an "all" remote to push to everything at once:

git remote add all <fetch-url>
# for fish
for url in (git remote -v | cut -f2 | cut -d' ' -f1 | sort | uniq); git remote set-url --add --push all $url ; end
# for POSIX (bash, etc.)
for url in $(git remote -v | cut -f2 | cut -d' ' -f1 | sort | uniq); do git remote set-url --add --push all $url ; done

If you want to, set upstream to the all remote, so that you can git push there by default (for pull, <fetch-url> will be used):

git push -u all
