Seamlessly trigger deploys in Netlify from WordPress.
Instead of going into Netlify and triggering a deploy every-time you make a change in WordPress, automate and make things easier with the NetlifyPress plugin. NetlifyPress lets you trigger deploys in Netlify (automatically!) without having to leave your WordPress Dashboard.
So, you’ve build a headless static front-end for your WordPress site and hosted it on Netlify, good job! Wondering how would you trigger a deploy in Netlify everytime someone updates a post in WordPress? Forget going inside everytime an update is made and triggering a build manually, install NetlifyPress and let it run a deploy for you automatically on each update.
If you’re looking for a real-life example, I’ve build my personal site nahid.dev (GitHub) using GatsbyJS with its source as WordPress and am hosting it on Netlify. I use NetlifyPress to automate deploys when I update pages and posts.
The core features of the plugin include the abilities to:
- Automatically trigger deploys on post publish
- Automatically trigger deploys on post update
- Automatically trigger deploys on post trash
- Filter the post types for which you want automatic deploys to run
- Add a button for manual deployments on the top admin toolbar.
If the above usage steps don’t answer your question(s), if you want to report an issue or if something is not working as expected, please create a topic in the Support Forum.
I have plans for the following features/improvements in the coming days (subject to user feedback and usage):
- Admin options migration to Settings API with Ajax support.
- Success/failure message on auto deploy trigger.
- Success/failure message on auto deploy status (after completion).
- Scheduled deployments.
- Deployment logs.
If you want to contribute to the plugin by reporting issues, implementing new features and so on, here’s its development repository on Github.
