[ANN] Webistrano - A Web UI for managing Capistrano deployme

I’m happy to announce the release of Webistrano - a Web UI for managing
Capistrano deployments.

Webistrano is an internal application that I developed at Peritor for
the easy handling of Capistrano deployments. I often had situations
where our designer updated some images and wanted to update/deploy our
Rails project. Capistrano offers a nice command line interface for doing
this but this is not the right tool for a designer, especially if you
have a complicated multi-stage environment with production, staging and
test settings.

Further we wanted to be able to keep track of who deployed what when to
which servers.

This is where Webistrano enters the stage.

Webistrano is a Ruby on Rails application that manages projects with
their different stages (like production or testing) and leverages
Capistrano to handle the deployment part. This way it is very easy to
handle multi-stage and multi-client situations and keep an eye on all
deployments. It further includes a simple email alerting system so that
you get pinged if somebody deploys to the production servers.

We are using Webistrano for quite some time now and it has proven stable
for our needs. I am releasing it under the BSD license. The Subversion
repository is located at Rubyforge.

On the project page you can find two screencasts that show you how to
get Webistrano running and explain some advanced concepts.

There is also an intro screencast:

I presented Webistrano last month at the Berlin Ruby U. Group (then
under the name ‘Webcap’) and the feedback was quite positive. I’d love
to hear your feedback and suggestions.

Jonathan,

This looks fantastic! I’m sure it will come in useful in our team for
managing deployments.

Cheers,

I’ve looked at it, and I’m planning to try it out as soon as I have
time. From what I’ve seen so far, it’s a lovely piece of work.

I’ll be sure to share whatever I find out.
