Gitium Build Status Coverage Code Climate

Welcome to Gitium

Gitium was built in 2013 to provide our clients a more simple and error-free method to integrate a new git version control into their code management flow.

Gitium was developed by the awesome engineering team at Presslabs, a Managed WordPress Hosting provider.

For more open-source projects, check Presslabs Code.

What is Gitium?

This plugin enables continuous deployment for WordPress, integrating with tools such as Github, Bitbucket or Travis-CI. Theme or plugin updates, installs and removals are all automatically versioned. Ninja code edits from the WordPress editor are also tracked by the version control system.

Why Gitium?

Gitium is designed with responsible development environments in mind, allowing staging and production to follow different branches of the same repository. You can also deploy code by simply using git push.

Gitium requires git command line tool with a minimum version of 1.7 installed on the server and the proc_open PHP function enabled.

Gitium features:

  • preserves the WordPress behavior
  • accountability for code changes
  • safe code storage—gets all code edits in Git
