Contributing a recipe

All code contributions must go through a pull request and be approved by a core developer before being merged. This is to ensure proper review of all the code.

  • Fork and clone.
  • Create a branch.
    • If the recipe is for Deployer 4.x then create your branch based on master
    • If the recipe is for Deployer 3.x then create your branch based on 3.x
    • If the recipe is for Deployer 2.x then create your branch based on the 2.x branch
  • Add your recipe to the recipes folder, it must be licensed as MIT.
  • Add documentation in Markdown for your recipe to the docs folder; you could base your documentation on as it is fairly complete.
  • Add your recipe to the table above in Please use alphabetical order.
  • Commit, push and send us a pull request.
  • You can use the documentation of your recipe as a description for your pull request.

To ensure a consistent code base, you should make sure the code follows PSR-2.

Recipe Do's and Don'ts

For easier integration in existing projects and fewer changes in your recipe (and/or docs for it) you should try and follow these general guidelines:

  • Use short file names for recipes, e.g. ftp instead of ftp_upload_to_server_recipe_by_me
  • Prefix all tasks in recipe with your recipe name. If you have a task named mytest in myrecipe it should be named myrecipe:mytest
  • Use global settings prefixed by your recipe name. If you have one setting, give it the same name as your recipe. If you have multiple settings, use an associative array
  • Use environment variables prefixed by your recipe name. If you have an environment variable named better_path in recipe myrecipe, call it myrecipe_better_path
  • Do not override existing tasks (for example those in common.php). Instead document thoroughly how tasks from your recipe can be integrated into the workflow
  • If your recipe depends on another (be it included in deployer or 3rd party) document it thoroughly. It's better for the end user to use require_once in deploy.php than to force dependencies.
