What does Journster do?

  1. When a file has been edited in a selected repository, GitHub sends Journster a webhook.
  2. Journster clones the repository.
  3. Install any npm packages.
  4. Install any Bower packages.
  5. Run the default Grunt task.
  6. Run the default Gulp task.
  7. If there were no errors, push all files from the dist folder to the repository's gh-pages branch.
  8. The repository's GitHub Pages hosted website is now updated.


Currently the Grunt or Gulp script must output files for the gh-pages branch in the /dist folder and Journster runs only the default task.

Journster go wayback
