How to run bash script after git push

I wanted to know how to execute a bash script in the local repo after pushing to github.

The bash script is located in the root of the folder. It can be moved around depending on where it is being called I guess.
I have looked into git hooks but there is no post-push hook and I don’t understand the other hooks very well.

  • git post-commit hook not executed
  • How to create alias for git bash to make fast cd through directories
  • git-filter-branch to remove strings, but where strings contain $ ' \ and other characters
  • Error authenticating Github using Travis CI
  • Git alias for fast commit with optional text
  • How can I display commit's position in the history relative to tags (and branches)?
  • I’m trying to call a jenkins build after the push. I have looked into ways of notifying jenkins after a push with post-receive url etc on github but nothing seems to work for me.

    This is the script I’m trying to run:

    java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s http://localhost:8080/ build Test

    This is fairly easy. There is a script ready to run. You will have to modify .git/hooks/post-commit to find the script you need to run.

    mv .git/hooks/post-commit.sample .git/hooks/post-commit
    vim .git/hooks/post-commit

    I found this at: Git Hooks

    If there is no .git/hooks/post-commit.sample file, not a problem, just create .git/hooks/post-commit from scratch, for example:

    echo look at me I am the post-commit script
    # call the script you want

    Remember to make the script executable with chmod +x.

    Do a test commit and you should see the output of the script, right before the regular output of the commit.

    I ended up using this answer here.

    Hope this helps!
