GitHub Webhooks and Push-to-Deploy

When you install a plugin or theme from GitHub, you can optionally enable Push-to-Deploy. When enabled, WP Pusher will setup a webhook on GitHub that will trigger an update every time you push new code to your repository.

If you log into GitHub and look under "Webhooks" in the repository settings, you will notice that you have a new webhook.

By default, every push will trigger a plugin or theme update, but this can be fine tuned by editing the webhook and choose which event should trigger it.

If you want to learn more about Push-to-Deploy and automatic updates, take a look at this guide.
