Capistrano CLI automation - using capistrano as a library

Hi all,

I’m trying to integrate Capistrano (thanks Jamis and DHH for such a
lovely
piece of software) into an application I’m writing.

I can’t figure out, though, how to get output from capistrano when it’s
used
through the CLI or configuration class, however. I see that it
implements a
logger (Logger) and I see that starting on line 12 of the included
logger.rbit has options to change the device to something that
responds to put:

— start snip capistrano-1.1.0/lib/capistrano/logger.rb —

def initialize(options={})
  output = options[:output] || STDERR
  case
    when output.respond_to?(:puts)
      @device = output
    else
      @device = File.open(output.to_str, "a")
      @needs_close = true
  end

  @options = options
  @level = 0
end

— end snip capistrano-1.1.0/lib/capistrano/logger.rb —

But, I cannot figure out how to set that options[:output] anywhere.

Here’s where I’m at:

script/console

require ‘capistrano’
require ‘capistrano/cli’
config = Capistrano::Configuration.new
#<Capistrano::Configuration:0x235b0a8
@actor=#<Capistrano::Actor:0x235b058
@task_call_frames=[], @tasks={},
@factory=#<Capistrano::Actor::DefaultConnectionFactory:0x235aff4
@config=#<Capistrano::Configuration:0x235b0a8 …>>,

:ssh_options=>{}, :user=>nil,
:deploy_to=>#<Proc:[email protected]/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/capistrano-
1.1.0/lib/capistrano/configuration.rb:55>,
:revision=>#<Proc:[email protected]/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/capistrano-
1.1.0/lib/capistrano/configuration.rb:62>, :original_value=>{},
:version_dir=>“releases”, :password=>nil, :application=>nil}, @roles={},
@load_paths=[".",
“/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/capistrano-1.1.0/lib/capistrano/recipes”],
@logger=#<Capistrano::Logger:0x235b044 @level=0, @device=#IO:0x1e9854,
@options={}>>

There it is, accessible, now as:

config.logger

but only as a read attribute. I see in the configuration.rb on about
line
12:

  @logger = Logger.new

Which makes me think it can’t be done. Any thoughts, anyone?

Should I patch it, or am I missing something?

Thanks,
