    Thanks for the question and shout out for my podcast

    More on my question: in my work flow I now mostly use git on the dev server and live server so i can ftp edit files on the dev and then push the changes then pull down on live. I just like not having any code or environment dependencies on my computer as I’ve been bitten in various ways in the past with MAMP and vagrant etc.

    Happy Christmas!

  • Dandelion is pretty simple for deploying from Git. I use it on all of my projects. The only snag is that you can only specify one destination in the config file (dev/live etc.).

  • I’ve used manual deployments via git hooks with a lot of success (assumes you have a git repo somewhere with your code and have git available on your server/web host). The git hook is not hard to set up. This is kind of old now but it’s an overview of how I’ve done this: If you want to handle Sass compilation/JS bundling etc on the server/web host rather then checking those files into your git repo (which would be better), then you’d need to add an additional step to perform that once the git push to the server is done.
