Praise Switchtower (plus a quick question)


#1

Switchtower is really cool once you get it going. Quick question, I do
a:

% rake deploy
% rake remote_exec ACTION=symlink_pictures

…but what’s the easiest way to combine the two in a single command?

Thanks
CM

Name the task after_symlink and it will be called automatically.

Name the task after_symlink and it will be called automatically.

You can also invoke multiple tasks using remote_exec:

rake remote_exec ACTION=deploy,symlink_pictures

But as Rick said, in this case, naming symlink_pictures
“after_symlink” (or creating after_symlink and calling
symlink_pictures from it) is probably the most efficient way to go.
Before ST invokes a task “foo”, it first looks for a task named
“before_foo” and invokes it (if it exists). After invoking “foo”, ST
looks for and invokes “after_foo”. This makes it easy to add “hooks”
to customize various tasks.
