As well as the web interface, DeployHQ also has a Ruby API library and command line tool for interacting with your projects.
You can find more information about the CLI client on GitHub, and installation and example usage instructions below.
You'll need Ruby installed on your system to be able to use the DeployHQ CLI. To get started, enter the following command in your terminal, in any directory, which will install the library globally.
gem install deployhq
To configure the DeployHQ CLI in a project, navigate to your project in your terminal, then run
deployhq configure to set up the connection to your project in DeployHQ, and follow the steps provided:
$ cd /path/to/project $ deployhq configure Account Domain (e.g. https://atech.deployhq.com): https://atech.deployhq.com Username or e-mail address: adamw API key (You can find this in Settings -> Security): my-api-key Default project to use (please use permalink from web URL): my-project-permalink File written to ./Deployfile
The CLI client will always look for the details of the current project in a file called Deployfile in the current directory. This file will contain your account URL, project permalink, username and API key, in JSON format.
It is recommended each member of your team has their own Deployfile, since the username and API key are user specific.
