Fetch, setup, automate and deploy your projects!

(once ready) you'll be able to use DeploYii either as a simple task runner to automate your project setup and configuration or as deployment solution to package and deploy your code.


Getting started

  1. get DeploYii: composer create-project giovdk21/deployii deployii ~0.5
  2. go inside the deployii folder (cd deployii/)
  3. run ./deployii to check the available options
  4. run ./deployii fetch example_basic to try out the basic example
  5. run ./deployii run ~/.deployii/workspace/example_basic_[...]/basicExample/ to run it again, without re-downloading it
  6. run ./deployii run ~/.deployii/workspace/example_basic_[...]/basicExample/ clean to run the clean target
  7. run ./deployii init ~/.deployii/workspace/helloWorld/ to create a new build script
