Capistrano and beyond...

Posted on 02/15/2008


capistranoIf you don't know what Capistrano is, then you've probably never deployed a Rails app.  Formerly known as SwitchTower, Capistrano is a tool that takes the pain out of deploying a Rails app.

By simply typing "cap deploy", Capistrano will grab your code from Subversion, push it up to your host, restart your server, and even run any necessary migrations.  Ain't that slick?


WebistranoCheck out Webistrano. It's a UI for managing Capistrano deployments, which they claim wil help in dealing with multiple projects in multiple environments.
