Evan Solomon has been busy and his busyness hasn’t been without cause and value. A few months ago he shared a new project with the world, a “helper” with deployment called Scatter. The idea was to create a support mechanism that would help you deploy your code via a custom script for different projects.
You can use any system you’d like, by the way, making it easy to access the custom script as you need. It’s basic design is to help keep your deploy and web code separate. In addition, it’ll make it easy to access one or the other while in development.
It just works and now it’s even better as it’s been rewritten in Ruby (from Python) with additional new features such as shared deploy scripts. For those familiar, this is obviously a really great way to handle deployment of WordPress plugins from Git to WordPress.org.
Evan has even gone ahead and done a quick screencast for those unfamiliar and looking to get started:
If this is something that interests you then make sure to check it out directly on GitHub. Fork and contribute to it while you’re at it. Why the heck not.
Thanks Evan for your work and giving it away to the community!
