Hooks - running stuff on Github hooks April 19, 2015 on Drew DeVault's blog

I found myself in need of a simple tool for deploying a project on every git commit, but I didn’t have a build server set up. This led to Hooks - a very simple tool that allows you to run arbitrary commands when Github’s hooks execute.

The configuration is very simple. In /etc/hooks.conf, write:

[truecraft]
repository=SirCmpwn/TrueCraft
branch=master
command=systemctl restart hooks
valid_ips=204.232.175.64/27,192.30.252.0/22,127.0.0.1

You may include any number of hooks. The valid_ips entry in that example allows you to accept hooks from Github and from localhost. Then you run Hooks itself, it will execute your command when you push a commit to your repository.

This allows you to do continuous deployment on the cheap and easy. I hope you find it useful. Hooks.
