Quickstart guide for git-is-deployed

git-is-deployed is a simple script to update a git tag and somewhat abuse the tag system. It will force the current commit to be tagged with deployed. This is useful when working with multiple states for (by example) a website. It makes a simple bookmark for the currently live state of code.


First, clone the repo:

git clone git://

Now, copy the file within ./bin anywhere on your path. Optionally, the script exists to automatically copy the script to /opt, assuming /opt is on your path.


The script is exceedingly simple, as it does not require any arguments.

$ git is-deployed  # when git finds a script on your path that has `git-` as the first characters, it appends it to your git executable.
- OR -
$ git-is-deployed
