How can I setup my droplet to update itself from a Continuous Integration suite like Codeship

  • Posted April 16, 2014

I am using Codeship to do integration testing whenever I push and commit at Github. I would like to know how do you guys set it up to deploy to droplets using Codeship

My projects are all in Node JS

I wrote a detailed blog post on how to automatically deploy a static website to a DO droplet every time you do a push to the master branch: https://kunalnagar.in/blog/deploy-sites-codeship-digital-ocean/

Hi tjmonsi, <br> <br>I’m not entirely sure what you are asking. Do you want to deploy code to a droplet when you make a git commit, or do you want to automatically launch droplets yourself? <br> <br>DigitalOcean has an API that developers can use to create ingratiations and script the deployment of droplets. The documentation is here: <br> <br>https://developers.digitalocean.com/ <br> <br>And here’s a tutorial to get you started: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-the-digitalocean-api <br> <br>Someone wrote Node.js bindings for it as well: <br> <br>https://github.com/enzy/digitalocean-api <br> <br>If you’re just looking for info on how to deploy your project to a droplet, using the Dokku application might be a good choice: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-the-dokku-one-click-digitalocean-image-to-run-a-node-js-app <br> <br>Let me know if you have anymore questions, or if I didn’t understand you right!
