The Cookbook: Dpl
Dpl is command line tool for deploying code, html, packages, or build artifacts to various service providers. It is tightly integrated into Travis CI’s deployment integration.
Ruby 2.2 or above, and something to note is
Dpl is generally optimized for usage on Linux systems.
This version of dpl is currently released as an alpha preview release. In order to install it, add the –pre flag:

.travis.yml build a test one out, and allow the deployment to run on your branch:
deploy: - provider: [name] edge: source: [your-login]/dpl branch: [your-branch] on: branch: [your-branch]
There you have it, you now understand the basics of Dpl, if you have any questions, please don’t hesistate to use the community forums where I (Montana Mendy), or some other talented person will help you an issue, and get you moving further along in your building adventure.
