How to Automatically Deploy WordPress Theme Changes using GitHub and Deploy
Hosted, third party Git version control systems, such as GitHub and BitBucket, allow users to leave issues (or tickets) if they spot a problem with your code. Your code changes can be committed (labelled) against a particular issue, to show the exact code changes made to fix an issue. This is really useful when you look back on code in 6 or 12 months time and want to know why you did something in a particular way.
Git Push: Deploying WordPress from GitHub to Your Web Host
I think the process is described incorrectly in step one. Either that, or I’m misunderstanding the following steps. In this line:
“To get started, you’ll need to set up an empty repository. After that, what you’re going to do is create a fresh WordPress install on GitHub, clone it locally, and then push that instance to GitHub.”
I believe the actual steps are to create a fresh WordPress install on your hosting server. That seems to be what is described later in step 2:
“Then a window will appear with a ‘git clone’ command, which will enable you to copy your brand-new WordPress website to your local computer.”

Your branch is up-to-date with ‘origin/master’.
Changes not staged for commit:
(use “git add …” to update what will be committed)
(use “git checkout — …” to discard changes in working directory)

The advantage of a cron job is that it can be made more secure, and has unlimited time to execute. It can also be repurposed to run the WP Cron command via wp cron, speeding up page load times slightly, and making scheduled publishing more reliable. The disadvantage is that not all users are going to be able to set up cron jobs, but this is not an issue if you’re running a VPS, or have SSH access.
How to deploy WordPress from GitHub to GoDaddy web hosting
You can do all of the above with DevOps tools like Jenkins, but to an average developer spending several hours on configuration seems like an overkill. Not many developers know, however, that you can easily streamline all of this stuff down to a single push to your Git repository with a simple tool called Buddy.
How To Deploy WordPress Plugins With GitHub Using Transients
First of all, what are WordPress transients? WordPress transients are a short-lived entry of data that is stored for a defined duration and will be automatically removed when it has expired — think of them as server-side cookies. WordPress uses transients to store information about all of the plugins that have been installed, including their version number. Every once in a while WordPress will refresh the data that is stored in the transient. It is this event that WordPress uses to check the Subversion repository for updated plugins. It is also this event that we will use to check for updates on our own plugin on GitHub.
