Standup is an application deployment and infrastructure management tool for Rails and Amazon EC2.
gem install standup
- Fill in actual settings in generated file
It consists of 3 major parts:
Amazon Web Services credentials
aws: account_id: 0123-4567-8910 access_key_id: GTFGV123P45DRDKOBBVP secret_access_key: jKkjhkjbb1Bhjh+MBG0GBbmuhdGh/Kgbdhzbd9sd keypair_name: aws availability_zone: us-east-1c
Here, keypair_name is keypair filename, without
By default, Standup searches actual file under
You can override this behavior by specifying
Global script params
ec2: image_id: ami-480df921 # Canonical Ubuntu 10.04, EBS boot instance_type: m1.small ssh_user: ubuntu webapp: name: superproject github_user: supercoder github_repo: superproject
Major part of script params can be set here.
name param is used for database name and application path.
Nodes and their script params
nodes: main: ec2: elastic_ip: 18.104.22.168 testing: staging:
nodes section, should go actual nodes (server instances) which you want to manage.
For each node, you can specify additional script params.
In this example,
elastic_ip param of
ec2 script is set for node
Script params are merged in
node-specific || global || script-defaults manner.
Tweaking bundled scripts
standup localize <script_name>
- Script file
config/standup/<script_name>.rbwill be copied from gem.
- Script's own files, like configs etc. under
config/standup/<script_name>, if any, will be copied from gem too.
- You can edit them and standup will use them instead of default.
- You can delete local script file or its own files, then default ones will be used.
Creating new scripts
standup generate <script_name>
- Script file
config/standup/<script_name>.rbwill be created with empty script stub.
- Edit it as you want, it's now available for Standup.
Setup script automates common Rails application deployment workflow.
If you want to add your script into this workflow, just set it as script param, thus overwriting default.
For example, if you want to add
rescue to your configuration, you need to:
- Write that
Change standup.yml like the following:
nodes: main: ... setup: ec2 basics ruby postgresql passenger rescue webapp update
- ? Script sequences: rework default script as script sequence
- change shell for www-data user
- change owner of /home/ubuntu/.irb-history
