Recently I took a course (that I paid for) about Github, and left it with more questions than answers. I am very familiar with Github as a follower of various WordPress developers and their plugins there, and have used it now and again for little WordPress projects I’ve worked on, but I have wanted to gain expertise regarding Git and Github for a while now. Last night, I checked into the Advanced WordPress Group on Facebook, and came across an update about something called WP Pusher. What is WP Pusher? In the words of its creator, Peter Suhm,
WP Pusher lets you install and update WordPress themes and plugins, directly from GitHub – even if your clients are using cheap shared hosting. If it can run WordPress, it can run WP Pusher. You can manage all your WordPress themes and plugins from one place, the dashboard, or enable Push-to-Deploy and have your code update itself automatically every time you push to GitHub or Bitbucket.
This is made possible by the WP Pusher plugin. The plugin hooks into WordPress and uses core functionality to fetch your themes and plugins from GitHub. No need to give us access to your servers or GitHub, since WordPress does the real work for us. That’s why it’s secure. An attacker will never be able to run evil shell commands through our plugin.
But I’m not here to sell you on WP Pusher. The reason why I find it worth mentioning, is because WP Pusher is currently offering a 5-day free e-mail based crash course on everything they feel WordPress developers need to know about Git. AND, it involves Command Line of course! If you want to receive this free course in your inbox, click here.
