It could be very interesting to be able to deploy web packages like composer, pear, npm, bower, grunt, sass, less, coffeescript etc...
Today, very interesting tools like previously quoted allow to
- save repository space
- auto load dependencies
- generate files
- suggests community - we do not work on multiple copies of a project, we go to the source repo and improves the project for everyone.
I am sure that functionality(ies) could be cumulate with the idea "deploy config file" to specify directory to visit with a list of command to execute inside it.
Complete We've implemented this suggestion!
