This is a Supervisor (process control system) wrapper for mina.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'mina-supervisord', require: false

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install mina-supervisord


To restart your app during deploy you might add this to deloy.rb:

require 'mina/supervisord'

task deploy: :environment do
  deploy do
    on :launch do
      invoke :'supervisord:restart', 'puma'

To call it as mina task, eg. to start your puma, you would run this from command line:

bundle exec mina supervisord:start['puma']

puma is a supervisord program.

Supported tasks

  • supervisord:restart- to restart a program (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:restart['program'])
  • supervisord:start- to start a program (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:start['program'])
  • supervisord:stop- to stop a program (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:stop['program'])
  • supervisord:status- to get status of a program (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:status['program'])
  • supervisord:signal- to send a signal to a program (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:signal['program,signal'])

Extra tasks

  • supervisord:signal:or_start- to send a signal to a program, or start it if not running (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:signal:or_start['program,signal'])
  • supervisord:restart:or_start- to restart a program, or start it if not running (eg. bundle exec mina supervisord:restart:or_start['program'])

You might find these extra tasks useful when you are not sure whether your program is running.

Eg. when we do our deploy, we want our puma server to be restarted or started if not running already. To do that, we have following in our deploy.rb:

desc "Phased restart of the application"
task :phased_restart => :environment do
  invoke :'supervisord:signal:or_start', fetch(:application_supervisor_file), "SIGUSR1"
