AutoPull: you push, it pulls

So you use GitHub and some compiled language, but not everyone can or wants to compile the source, they just want the artifacts. I made a tiny app that aids in this sort of thing. If you have ever wanted to execute an event in Ruby in response to a push to a repo via GitHub's Post-Receive URL hooks, this is probably a good starting point.

AutoPull on GitHub.

Additionally, it doesn't have to just be used with GitHub (anything that can automatically hit a URL works), and it doesn't even have to be used for pulling down source -- it can send an email or something. Right now I'm using it for HydrateJS -- when I push some new CoffeeScript to GitHub, it automatically pulls and rebuilds the .js file on my server.
