Hi everyone,
Feeling a little rude after a long absence in which I dropped all my non-work commitments -- but still here to ask a question!


I'm setting up a new workflow using Kauhsal's ox-hugo.  I keep all my course materials in a few org files & publish to hugo-flavoured markdown.

Awesome! :D

  My source materials live in one git repo, and my website in another.  After exporting any of my my courses to the local hugo directory, I'd like to run a shell script that I'll keep in my org-files directory.  

That script
- cds to the website repo directory, commits changes to the website master branch, - runs hugo,
- switches to the "public" directory of compiled html pages, which has a worktree checked out to  the  gh-pages branch,
- commits changes there as well, and then
- pushes both branches to github. 

The script seems to work OK, and now I would like to run it every time I export from the appropriate projects. Is there a good way for me to do this? I guess a hook that only runs under certain conditions?

If I can get this to work, and then also auto export every time I commit the org-files to master (maybe with a post-commit git hook of ~emacsclient -e '(org-publish-project "course1"~ ?), then I will maybe be almost happy!

I haven't yet got to ox-publish to work with ox-hugo, because of the unique flow for subtree-based exports where we want to export only subtrees with a specific property (EXPORT_FILE_NAME). 

But I was finally able to achieve something like that using a Makefile [1] + Netlify (or GitHub Pages/Travis CI or GitLab CI).

A very recent example (few days) is how I helped set up the use-package website publishing flow.

- ox-hugo + Hugo using Makefile + GitHub Pages. 

You *only* need to commit the use-package.org[2] to the GitHub repo, and https://jwiegley.github.io/use-package/ updates in a minute or so. The Travis CI simply calls "make doc". That takes care of:
- Installing dependencies if needed on the CI machine
- Exporting Org to Markdown using ox-hugo
- Running hugo
- Commiting published HTML to the gh-pages branch
- And the site gets deployed, just like that :)

PS: I publish the ox-hugo package website[3] the same way too, but using Netlify (/which is the better than GitHub Pages or Gitlab CI IMO -- free too/). See the footer of that site for the 1-file Org source.
