Github Integration for Theme Developers

If you use Git and Github as a version control system for your Tumblr themes, here’s how to set it up so that your updates automatically get submitted to Tumblr.

  1. On the theme submission form, enable the Github switch.
  2. You must authorize Tumblr to access your Github account on your behalf.
  3. Once the authorization process is complete, fill out your repository information (name and path to the theme source file).
  4. Press the “import” button and confirm that the source is correct.
  5. Finish the theme submission as usual.

Anytime you push commits to your “master” branch on Github, Tumblr will automatically fetch the latest version of the theme source and mark it as pending for review. We’ll send you an email confirmation each time.
