Favorite Deployment Tool?

Hi,

Its been a couple years since I’ve done any Rails development but have
decided to start on a project. Is Capistrano still the favorite tool
for deployment or is there another one that most people use these days?

Thanks, Scott.

It’s good enough for me. And that’s very handy it is supported by
various gems.

Example from this week:
It’s nice to have all you new gems from Gemfile checked and installed
on deploy. Just do “require 'bundler/capistrano”’ and you’re done.
Same with cron table update if you use “whenever” gem for that.
“require ‘whenever/capistrano’” and it’ll run required tasks
automatically.

Also, I always use capistrano with capistrano-ext gem, which allows to
have different configs for “cap staging deploy” and “cap production
deploy”. Pretty cool. Is there any reason to use something else?

passenger for the win!

I use capistrano (usually with the multi stage extension)
