The Github backed Capistrano deployment management UI.
Strano allows you to run any capistrano task via a clean and simple web interface. Simply create a project from any of your Github repositories, and Strano will use the Capistrano configuration within the repository itself. Which means you don't have to set up Capistrano twice, and you can still run capistrano tasks from the command line without fear of different configurations being used, causing conflicted deploys.
All tasks are recorded, so you can look back and see a full history of who did what and when. I also plan on creating a Capistrano plugin, that will record all command line task activity with Strano. Which means your task history will also include the tasks that you ran on the command line.
Strano is in production use at ShermansTravel, but is still in active development. So I need your help to improve and ensure the code is top quality. So I enncourage any and all pull requests. So fork away!
Strano is simply a Rails app with a Resque backend for processing background jobs. Clone the repo from Github and run:
Then create the DB:
bundle exec rake db:setup
Then start the app:
bundle exec rails s
NOTE Strano cannot be run on Heroku, as the project repositories have to cloned
to a local directory in your app at
Strano requires that you define only three configuration variables. The rest are
optional, but can be overridden. You can either create a config/strano.yml
configuration file and define them in there, or you can define them in the
config/strano.example.yml for all possible configuration variables.
The following are required and should be defined before running Strano.
Github Key and Secret
Create a Github application and copy the generated key and secret to:
Public SSH key
In order to clone repositories from Github, it requires a public SSH key be defined in
Background processing of tasks and repo management is taken care of by Resque. Run the queue like this:
bundle exec rake QUEUE=* resque:work
You can then monitor your queue at
