Trigger Craft CMS 3 Plugin
Kick off static deployments only when you need to.
A simple plugin to kick off builds asynchronously, ideal for something like a headless GatsbyJS or Gridsome frontend deployed to Netlify or Zeit. Use it to add a glorified build buton, or tie it to cron so that changes are grouped and pushed on whatever schedule you define.
Run checks or trigger deploys from the command line:
trigger/deploy/check # Triggers a build if changes are pending. trigger/deploy/go # Immediately triggers a deploy build. trigger/deploy/cancel # Cancels pending changes.
- Require with
composer require workingconcept/craft-trigger, then install via CLI or control panel.
- Visit Settings, set your deploy webhook URL.
- To batch changes for deploy, add a cron job to run
craft trigger/deploy/check, which post to your webhook URL only if changes are pending.
- Optionally add the Dashboard widget to your layout for quick one-click builds.
How it Works
Saving, reordering, deleting and restoring Elements will either trigger a build or switch on a
pending flag in the database, depending on the Deploy on Content Change setting you chose. Running
craft trigger/deploy/check or manually triggering a build from the Dashboard or with
trigger/deploy/go will reset that flag.
Draft edits won't be flagged as changes.
