Capistrano database.yml task
Provides a couple of tasks for creating the database.yml configuration file dynamically when deploy:setup is run.
This is the database.yml task as introduced by Simone Carletti, packaged as a gem:
The following assumes you use bundler. If you are working on a Rails 3 project, this should be the case.
To use this gem, first add the following to your Gemfile:
Then install the gem by executing:
$ bundle install
Afterwards, add the following to your config/deploy.rb:
The original config/database.yml should be excluded from version control. You can easily accomplish this by renaming the file (for example to database.example.yml) and configuring your SCM in order to ignore the database.yml file.
The following example demonstrate how to rename the file and ignore the original one with Subversion.
$ svn mv config/database.yml config/database.example.yml $ svn propset svn:ignore 'database.yml' config
If your repository is powered by Git, type the following commands.
$ git mv config/database.yml config/database.example.yml $ echo 'config/database.yml' >> .gitignore
