## Gemfile

# This one is mandatory.
gem 'capistrano'

# If you're using Thin, this should be enough.
gem 'thin'

# The same with Unicorn.
gem 'unicorn'

# If you're going to use foreman to export the upstarts, you should declare it.
gem 'foreman'

First Deploy

cap [environment] deploy:setup

In the server you need to generate a ssh-key and then add it to your CVS


Clone the repository

cd ~/<app_directory>/releases
git clone <repo_uri> YYYYMMDDHHmmss

Create a symlink for the current directory and run bundle install in it

cd ~/<app_directory>
ln -s releases/YYYYMMDDHHmmss current
cd current
bundle install

Run the following commands on your local machine

cap [environment] deploy:db_configure
cap [environment] deploy:db_symlink
cap [environment] deploy:db_setup
cap [environment] deploy:assets:precompile
cap [environment] deploy:start

That's it.
