Github to Deployment Script

We all know releasing plugins can be quite a chore, and deep down we all loathe SVN so here is a neat little script for automating the process as much as possible.

What this script does

This script will pull down your remote GIT and SVN repositories, tag a release using the branch you specify, and commit everything to

To use it you must:

  1. Host your code on GITHUB
  2. Obtain a personal access token (keep this private!)
  3. Already have a SVN repository setup for your plugin.
  4. Have both GIT and SVN setup on your machine and available from the command line.

Getting started

  1. Download the script from this repository and place it in a location of your choosing.
  2. Edit the script and set the GITHUBACCESSTOKEN
  3. Set the PLUGIN_SLUG to match the slug of your plugin
  4. Set the GITHUBREPOOWNER to the owner of the repository you wish to deploy. Usually your username.
  5. Set the GITHUBREPONAME to the name of your GITHUB repo.
  6. Save the script.

The script is ready to run.


  1. Open up terminal and cd to the directory containing the script.
  2. Run:
  3. Follow the prompts.


Here is a screencast of the process you'll typically see when running the script.


Final notes

  • This will checkout the remote version of your Github Repo.
  • Committing to can take a while so be patient.
  • I have tested this on Mac only.
  • Use at your own risk of course :)
