Just wondering if Capistrano was the only app for deploying rails
It’s my understanding that Capistrano is deployed from a rails app to
rails apps on either the same or different, even multiple machines at
If this is the case, our deployment procedure differs from the
Here’s a very brief description of what I do and need, in case I’m wrong
Capistrano can be used.
I develop on my laptop, use svn and migrations.
When I say it’s ready to go, I tell our network guy there’s a build
and he deploys it. Right now the deployment consists of moving a war
from my dev box to the box that needs the update. I think for rails it
should be as easy as running “rake deploy” or something similar in the
application directory on the box you want to update. There’s no reason
it to take as many steps as our current Java/Jsp/Tomcat deployment
I have little access to the QA box and no access to the production box
can’t deploy to these boxes and don’t want the network guys having a
installation of the rails app just to deploy it to other boxes. I would
like them to be able to run a command in the app directory on the
that needs the update.
I’m hoping either Capistrano will do this or something else is already
otherwise I’m going to start writing one this weekend.
thanks for any input,
