= Sake. Best served warm.
Sick of copy & pasting your badass custom Rakefiles into every new Rails app
you start? Fed up with writing one-off admistrative scripts and leaving them
everything?
No longer. Sake is a tool which helps you maintain a set of system level Rake tasks.
Get started:
$ sudo gem install sake
$ sake -h
Show all Sake tasks (but no local Rake tasks), optionally only those matching a pattern.
$ sake -T
$ sake -T db
Show tasks in a Rakefile, optionally only those matching a pattern.
$ sake -T file.rake
$ sake -T file.rake db
Install tasks from a Rakefile, optionally specifying specific tasks.
$ sake -i Rakefile
$ sake -i Rakefile db:remigrate
$ sake -i Rakefile db:remigrate routes
Examine the source of a Rake task.
$ sake -e routes
You can also examine the source of a task not yet installed.
$ sake -e Rakefile db:remigrate
Uninstall an installed task. (Can be passed one or more tasks.)
$ sake -u db:remigrate
Post a task to Pastie!
$ sake -p routes
Invoke a Sake task.
$ sake <taskname>
Some Sake tasks may depend on tasks which exist only locally.
For instance, you may have a db:version sake task which depends
on the 'environment' Rake task. The 'environment' Rake task is one
defined by Rails to load its environment. This db:version task will
work when your current directory is within a Rails app because
Sake knows how to find Rake tasks. This task will not work,
however, in any other directory (unless a task named 'environment'
indeed exists).
Sake can also serve its tasks over a network by launching a Mongrel handler.
Pass the -S switch to start Sake in server mode.
$ sake -S
You can, of course, specify a port.
$ sake -S -p 1111
You can also daemonize your server for long term serving fun.
$ sake -S -d
