What would you like to do?
A small bash script to update ghost. It assumes that your ghost blog is installed in a subfolder called ghost and you are running it from the parent folder. Moreover it assumes that you use forever to manage your ghost server and that you run it from a script called starter.sh
#!/bin/bash
if [[ -z $GHOSTUPDATEFILE ]];
then
export GHOSTUPDATEFILE='ghost-0.4.0.zip'
fi
if [[ -z $GHOSTUPDATELOCATION ]];
then
export GHOSTUPDATELOCATION='update-ghost'
fi
if [[ -z $GHOSTINSTALLDIR ]];
then
export GHOSTINSTALLDIR=`pwd`'/ghost'
fi
export STARTLOCATION=`pwd`
wget https://ghost.org/zip/$(echo $GHOSTUPDATEFILE)
unzip $GHOSTUPDATEFILE -d $GHOSTUPDATELOCATION
echo "Ghost downloaded and unzipped"
cd $GHOSTUPDATELOCATION
cp *.md *.js *.txt *.json $GHOSTINSTALLDIR
rm -rf $GHOSTINSTALLDIR/core
cp -R core $GHOSTINSTALLDIR
rm -rf $GHOSTINSTALLDIR/content/themes/casper
cp -R content/themes/casper $GHOSTINSTALLDIR/content/themes
echo "Ghost has been updated with" $GHOST
cd $GHOSTINSTALLDIR
npm install --production
echo "NPM updated"
cd $STARTLOCATION
rm -rf $GHOSTUPDATELOCATION $GHOSTUPDATEFILE
echo "Folder cleaned"
echo "Restarting ghost..."
forever stop 0
sh $GHOSTINSTALLDIR/starter.sh
echo "Done!"
