Spock v1 Documentation



  1. Copy the addons/Spock directory into site/addons.
  2. Whitelist the environments Spock should be run in. Read more.


Out of the box, Spock will perform a few git commands to stage, commit, and push any affected files.

Basically, it will do this:

# Any `commands_before` will be run here
# ...

# Each affected file will be staged in a separate command
git add
git add
git add

git commit -m "Data saved by bob"  # or Fieldset saved, Asset uploaded, etc...

git push  # this is opt-in

# Any `commands_after` will be run here
# ...

You may enable git push-ing in your spock.yaml.

git_push: true

You may add hardcoded commands before or after the git commands by adding commands_before and/or commands_after to your spock.yaml:

  - some-unix-command
  - another-unix-command

Naming Spock's Commits

By default, Spock will commit via the username and email configured in Git (which is usually you).

You can override this by editing the "Git Username" and/or "Git Email" fields in the Spock addon settings area of the Control Panel, or add the variables to your site/settings/addons/spock.yaml, for example:

git_username: Spock
git_email: [email protected]

Custom commands

The Git workflow Spock provides out of the box works fine for most people, but if you have special requirements, you may define your own set of commands. You can do this in a service provider like so:

class YourServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    public function boot()
        // As a string, for a single command:

        // As an array for basic commands:
        app('spock')->setCommands(['command one', 'command two']);

        // A closure that returns an array of commands.
        // The first argument will be an instance of the `Commander` class.
        app('spock')->setCommands(function ($spock) {
            $paths = $spock->event()->affectedPaths();
            return [ ];

Whitelisting Environments

Spock will only run commands when it's in a whitelisted environment. By default, Spock will only run in the production environment.

You can edit the environments in Spock addon settings area of the Control Panel, or add an environments array to site/settings/addons/spock.yaml, for example:

  - production
  - staging

Queueing Commands

Spock automatically queues commands to run in the background when you have a queue driver set. This can be helpful if you have git set to automatically push, or if you are running any commands that take time to execute, causing your users to experience wait time. To setup a queue in your statamic app:

  1. Ensure Redis is installed and running on your server.
  2. Add QUEUE_DRIVER=redis to your .env file. What’s an .env file?
  3. Run php please queue:listen.
