Helpful rake tasks for Heroku.
To install as a gem, add the following to config/environment.rb:
Rake tasks are not automatically loaded from gems, so you’ll need to add the following to your Rakefile:
begin require 'heroku_san/tasks' rescue LoadError STDERR.puts "Run `rake gems:install` to install heroku_san" end
To install as a plugin:
script/plugin install git://github.com/fastestforward/heroku_san.git
In config/heroku.yml you will need add the Heroku apps that you would like to attach to this project. Here is an example of an app called 'awesomeapp' with three Heroku apps attached.
apps: # shorthand: heroku app production: awesomeapp staging: awesomeapp-staging demo: awesomeapp-demo
If this is a fresh project, heroku_san can create all the applications for you, and set the RACK_ENV.
rake all heroku:create heroku:rack_env
After configuring your Heroku apps you can use rake tasks to control the apps.
rake production deploy
A rake task with the shorthand name of each app is now available and adds that server to the list that subsequent commands will execute on. Because this list is additive, you can easily select which servers to run a command on.
rake demo staging restart
A special rake task 'all' is created that causes any further commands to execute on all heroku apps.
Manipulate collaborators on all this project's apps (prompts for email address):
rake all heroku:share rake all heroku:unshare
Need to add remotes for each app?
rake all heroku:remotes
A full list of tasks provided:
rake all # Select all Heroku apps for later command rake console # Opens a remote console rake deploy # Deploys, migrates and restarts latest code. rake capture # Captures a bundle on Heroku rake heroku:apps # Lists configured apps rake heroku:create # Creates the Heroku app rake heroku:create_config # Creates an example configuration file rake heroku:gems # Generate the Heroku gems manifest from gem dependencies rake heroku:remotes # Add git remotes for all apps in this project rake heroku:rack_env # Add proper RACK_ENV to each application rake heroku:share # Adds a collaborator rake heroku:unshare # Removes a collaborator rake migrate # Migrates and restarts remote servers rake restart # Restarts remote servers
Frequently used tasks are not namespaced, everything else lives under heroku.
