My application is going into user testing and I would like to see
which “release” the user has been testing against by the release
appearing somewhere on the view. I can then check it on screen prints
I am using Git and Capistrano in a multi-stage environment.
I expect I could access the capistrano release name from the
filesystem directory somehow. Any clever way of doing this in the
Even better would be to somehow get Capistrano to capture the SHA
(e.g. 1837213156f56b850e9045622d5c2f4a1607ef53) that it is checking
out and placing that somewhere where I can read. That way I can track
any errors based on the Git release. Perhaps just displaying the
first 4 digits would be enough. Has anyone done this somehow?
Any other ideas?
