I'm finding the :before_task and :after_task facilities in Capistrano
very useful.

For example, I needed to add a shared directory to my system. All I had
to do was add a few lines to deploy.rb:

desc "Add shared usr_img directory to shared"
task :after_setup do
  run <<-CMD
  mkdir -p -m 775 #{shared_path}/user_img

desc "Link shared usr_img directory to public/usr_img"
task :after_update_code do
  run <<-CMD
  ln -nfs #{shared_path}/user_img #{release_path}/public/user_img
