# Publish your site with one command
When your site is ready to be published, copy the files to our server with a familiar command:
1rsync -rv public/ pgs.sh:/myproj
That's it! There's no need to formally create a project, we create them on-the-fly. Further, we provide TLS for every project automatically.
# Manage your projects with a remote CLI
Use our CLI to manage projects:
1ssh pgs.sh help
# Instant promotion and rollback
Additionally you can setup a pipeline for promotion and rollbacks, which will instantly update your project.
1ssh pgs.sh link project-prod project-d0131d4
A common way to perform promotions within pgs.sh is to setup CI/CD so every
git push to
main would trigger a build and create a new project based on the
git commit hash (e.g.
This command will create a symbolic link from
project-d0131d4. Want to rollback a release? Just change the link for
project-prod to a previous project.
We also built a github action that handles all the logic for uploading to pgs.sh. Here's an example of it in action.
# CLI Reference
The best way to learn about all the commands we support is via an SSH command:
1ssh pgs.sh help
Having said that, we do want to demonstrate the power of pgs.sh by discussing
design goals. All of our SSH commands are safe-by-default. Meaning, they never
mutate server state by default. This provides users an opportunity to experiment
with our commands to see how they work. In order to actually trigger server
mutations, every command must be appended with
Further, we want to make sure users are able to manage their static sites exclusively from SSH commands. Below is list of features we support via SSH commands:
1# storage usage stats
2ssh pgs.sh stats
4# list all projects (and their links)
5ssh pgs.sh ls
7# list all project dependencies
8ssh pgs.sh depends project-x
10# link a project (e.g. folder symlink)
11ssh pgs.sh link project-x --to project-y
13# unlink a project
14ssh pgs.sh unlink project-x
16# delete a project
17ssh pgs.sh rm project-x
19# delete all projects matching a prefix
20# (except projects that have linked projects)
21ssh pgs.sh prune prefix
23# delete all projects matching a prefix
24# except the last (3) recently updated projects
25ssh pgs.sh retain prefix
27# set project to private to only you and matching public keys
28ssh pgs.sh acl project-x --type pubkeys --acl sha256:xxx
# What file types are supported?
# Access Control List
Thanks to SSH tunnels we can provide restricted access to projects.
We have three options:
- public (default)
- pubkeys (list of sha256 public keys to give read access to)
- pico (list of pico users to grant read access to)
1# access to anyone with a public key
2ssh pgs.sh acl project-x --type pubkeys
4# access only to public keys provided
5ssh pgs.sh acl project-x --type pubkeys --acl sha256:xxx --acl sha256:yyy
7# access to anyone with a pico account
8ssh pgs.sh acl project-x --type pico
10# access only to pico users provided
11ssh pgs.sh acl project-x --type pico --acl antonio --acl erock
13# access to anyone
14ssh pgs.sh acl project-x --type public
To connect to a private project:
1ssh -L 5000:localhost:80 -N email@example.com
Then open your browser to http://localhost:5000
# Custom Domains
We have a very easy-to-setup guide on custom domains.
# Custom Redirects
We support custom redirects via a special file
Read more about it at netflify.
# Custom Headers
We support custom headers via a special file
Read more about it at netlify.
# Single-Page Applications
We support SPAs! Upload a
_redirects file to your project:
/* /index.html 200
# Reserved username project
If you create a project with the same name as your username, then you can access it at:
1rsync -rv public/ firstname.lastname@example.org:/glossy
2# => https://glossy.pgs.sh
# Content security policy
For pico domains we have modestly strict content-security policies.
1Content-Security-Policy "default-src 'self'; img-src * 'unsafe-inline'; style-src * 'unsafe-inline'"
If you need to access sites that are blocked by this CSP, then you can use a custom domain which won't have those security restrictions.
