    Hi – can you advise if it possible to deploy from a build folder using Codeship to Nodejitsu?
    I am using GulpJS to create my application for deployment and then would like this deployed to Nodejistsu rather the a trigger from check in to my master branch in Git Hub. I think I could use some custom script to do it using gulp prior to deploying but how would I then deploy this to Nodejitsu through your interface. Maybe there is another approach to this but it could be worth specifying using globs as an option as to what files you want to deploy from the branch. I will do some additional research as maybe I am missing something but if you have any other approaches to this please advise – thanks
