Make changes and deploy them

Make a change

We’ll make a simple change to the project code. Find the file resources/views/welcome.blade.php, which is responsible for the Laravel welcome page, and adjust the line controlling the background colour, for example:

<!-- Styles -->
<style>
    html, body {
        background-color: black;
        color: #636b6f;

and reload the page to check that it has taken effect.

Deploy to the Cloud

To deploy your changes to the Test server, push your changes, and run a deployment command:

git add composer.json app.flavour .flavour
git commit -m "Added laravel-responsecache"
git push origin master

On the project Dashboard, you will see that your new commit is listed as 1 Undeployed commit. You can deploy this using the Control Panel, or by running:

divio project deploy

When it has finished deploying, you should check the Test server to see that all is as expected. Once you’re satisfied that it works correctly, you can deploy the Live server too:

divio project deploy live

This is about a simple change as its possible to make and deploy, but it helps illustrate the workflow and the development/deployment cycle. In the next section we’ll work through some more sophisticated steps.
