JAMstack Deployments [BETA]

A WordPress plugin for JAMstack deployments on Netlify (and other platforms).

Description

This plugin provides a way to fire off a request to a webhook when a post, page or custom post type has been created, udpated or deleted. You're also able to fire off a request manually at the click of a button, or programmatically via a WordPress action.

Installing the Plugin

Clone the contents of this repository to your WordPress plugins folder and activate the plugin via the installed plugins page.

Configuration

The plugin attempts to trigger builds when you update your content, and has settings that you can use to define what post types & taxonomies should be monitored.

You can access the plugin's settings in WordPress by accessing the 'Settings' panel on the left hand side of the dashboard and then clicking 'Deployments'.

From this screen you can configure the following:

  • Webhook URL - The webhook URL that you have created to trigger a deployment. For more information on webhooks with Netlify visit the Netlify documentation.
  • Webhook Method - This is the required method for the webhook request. The available options are GET or POST. By default the plugin will automatically select POST.
  • Post Types - A list of selectable post types that will trigger a Netlify deployment when created, updated or deleted. Note that only selected post types will trigger a deployment.
  • Taxonomies - A list of selectable taxonomies that will trigger a Netlify deployment when created, updated or deleted. Note that only selected taxonomies will trigger a deployment.

If you need more control, there are actions & filters you can use to get the job done.

Post Types

You can choose which posts types should trigger builds from the plugin settings. However, you may require more control, or need to overwrite the settings, you can do so using the jamstack_deployments_post_types filter. By default, this filter contains an array of post types that we monitor. You can add or remove them as required.

For example, if you want to force the plugin to trigger builds for the 'post' post type regardless of the settings, you can do so with the following code:

add_filter('jamstack_deployments_post_types', function ($post_types, $post_id, $post) {
    if (!in_array($post->post_type, $post_types, true)) {
        $post_types[] = 'post';
    }
    return $post_types;
}, 10, 3);

Taxonomies

Like post types, you can choose which taxonmies should trigger builds from the plugin settings. But there may be times you need more control. For this, you can use the jamstack_deployments_taxonomies filter. By defualt, this filter contains an array of taxonomies that we monitor.

For example, if you want to force the plugin to trigger builds for the 'post_tag' taxonomy regardless of the settings, you can do so with the following code:

add_filter('jamstack_deployments_taxonomies', function ($taxonomies, $term_id, $tax_id) {
    $tax = get_taxonomy($tax_id);
    if (!in_array($tax->name, $taxonomies, true)) {
        $taxonomies[] = 'post_tag';
    }
    return $taxonomies;
}, 10, 3);

Post Statuses

You can use the jamstack_deployments_post_statuses filter to change which post statuses we monitor. The default is to monitor 'publish', 'private' and 'trash'.

Here is an example that adds 'review' to the array of post statuses that we monitor & will trigger builds for.

add_filter('jamstack_deployments_post_statuses', function ($statuses, $post_id, $post) {
    $statuses[] = 'review';
    return $statuses;
}, 10, 3);

Custom Actions

The jamstack_deployments_fire_webhook action can be used to fire the webhook and trigger a build at a custom point that you specify. For example, if you want to fire the webhook when a user registers, then you can use:

add_action('user_register', 'jamstack_deployments_fire_webhook');

Running Code Before & After Webhooks

You can run code directly before or after you fire the webhook using the following actions:

  • Before: jamstack_deployments_before_fire_webhook
  • After: jamstack_deployments_after_fire_webhook
