The Railslove_deploy gem provides some sprinkle and capistrano recipes to setup a full server stack and deploy your application. It tries to be as configurable as possible by providing a configurable collection of recipies simple recipes.
How to get you going
Run the deployify command in your application root directory to generate all the deployment files
bumi:~/development/rails_apps/stuff/deploy_demo → deployify . [Deployment files created]
This generates the default capistrano files (Capfile and config/deploy.rb) and a config/server directory containing the server configuration files:
- backup.rb - example safe (http://github.com/astrails/safe) backup file
- policy.rb - the sprinkle policy for your server
- vhost.erb - the template to generate your apache vhost config file
- ferm.conf.erb - the ferm (http://ferm.foo-projects.org/) to configure IP tables
2. Adjust your config/deploy.rb file
Adjust the deploy file for your needs. Enter the IPs of your Server, configure your callbacks, etc.
3. Adjust your config/server/policy.rb file
The policy file describes how your server should look like. Here you can configure the packages you want to install.
The default policy installs the following:
policy :passenger_stack, :roles => :app do requires :webserver # Apache requires :database # MySQL or SQLite # memcached requires :memcached_daemon # Memcached requires :libmemcached # libmemcached requires :memcached_conf # memcached-user, init.d config requires :scm # Git or SVN requires :ruby # Ruby Enterprise requires :searchengine # Sphinx requires :appserver # passenger requires :rails_user # special rails user with sudo rights requires :database_driver # Ruby database driver requires :usefull_gems # usefull, frequently needed gems requires :image_magick # image magick requires :ferm # ferm iptable configuration tool requires :ferm_conf # configure ferm (allow http, https and ssh) requires :monit # monit - system process monitoring requires :munin_node # install munin-node for system monitoring requires :munin_apache_status # configure extended apache status information end
4. use the sprinkle command to run your policy and setup your server
sprinkle -s config/server/policy.rb
Now sprinkle parses your policy and load the recipes and installs it on the server. After that you're server is ready to deploy.
5. cap deploy:setup
6. cap deploy:cold
You're done. :D
