Deploying sage with rsync?

sage9

#1

Hi!

I’ve been trying to automatize a deployment workflow for Sage. I got my remote server on Digital Ocean running a regular WordPress install without Trellis nor Bedrock.

What I’ve tried so far is creating a deploy command in a makefile that uses rsync to upload the changes, ssh’s to run yarn run build:production and finally runs wp blade compile to compile the cache. Problem is, I’m trying to run ‘yarn run build:production’ from the makefile too and it just doesn’t work. Yarn throws a ‘Node is required’ error which has to do with the available PATH when commands are ran with SSH in that way (i.e. without loading the interactive shell. Tried -t flag, doesn’t work either). wp blade compile runs okay.

So I wanted to know if someone has a simple deployment workflow for sage that allows to run yarn run build:production or what other deployment scrips/workflows are you guys using to deploy sage without ansible.

Why do you have to run yarn remotely? Why not run it locally (or on a CI service) and then rsync the files to your server?

Thanks for replying!
I thought deploying the compiled resources was bad practice but I’m realizing that it isn’t that much… I’m currently excluding the dist/ directory when rsyncing the files. Any gotcha I should be aware of?

So long as you aren’t generating any urls in your assets, you should be fine.

awesome, sounds like a plan. Thanks!

Here’s a sample file I use to deploy everything with bitbucket pipelines.

Create a bitbucket-pipelines.yml in the root project, and activate bitbucket pipelines. You’ll need to make sure all the variables are configured too. Let me know if you have any questions.

# Only use spaces to indent your .yml configuration.

# You can specify a custom docker image from Docker Hub as your build environment.

I am working currently on a dockerized version of wordpress with sage and have been trying (when I get time) to automate my deployments with bitbucket-pipelines. Do you use Docker? If not, would you be willing to work together on automating this? I truly believe docker, wordpress, sage and bitbucket-pipelines (or whatever ci/cd tool) can be used to automate the deployment process with just a git push…

Lots of us are already doing this with CircleCI + Docker :slight_smile: Deploys with Trellis + Sage in ~2mins.

I’d be interested in checking out an example :slight_smile:

There’s a few examples you can find by searching this forum :slight_smile:
