Little http service, implemented in Go, intended to be used as a "webhook" to generate documentation for a given MkDocs based repository.

Basically, for a requested repository, the service runs the following under the associated local clone:

$ cd /path/to/clone
$ git pull origin master
$ mkdocs build --clean
$ cp -r site/. /path/to/destination

Configuration is given as a parameter pointing to a JSON file with the following structure:

  "repos" : {
    "foo": {
      "localRepo":   "/path/to/foo-repo",
      "destination": "/var/www/html/doc/foo/"
    "baz": {
      "localRepo":   "/path/to/baz-repo",
      "destination": "/var/www/html/doc/baz/"

  "mkdocs": "/path/to/executable/mkdocs",
  "port": "8000"

Get it

$ go get
$ go install

Run it

$ $GOPATH/bin/docwebhook /path/to/docwebhook/config.json
docwebhook 0.2.0 listening on 8000

The service only has a POST route expecting a repoName parameter whose value should correspond to one of the keys under the "repos" entry in the given configuration.

Example of exercising the service (using HTTPie):

$ http post ''
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Documentation generated.
  localRepo:   /path/to/foo-repo
  destination: /var/www/html/doc/foo/


On tethysdash I've launched the service with output to /home/carueda/docwebhook-output/_output.

I also set up a crontab to launch it at boot time:

PATH=/home/carueda/gowork/bin:...other paths...

@reboot docwebhook >> /home/carueda/docwebhook-output/_output

where /home/carueda/gowork is the value of my $GOPATH.
