=== goodcastle A script for deploying Wordpress sites. Not as clever or as sophisiticated as capistrano; not terrible. == Requirements You'll need Ruby, Rubygems, along with the erubis gem. goodcastle is designed for use on unix-based systems, and assumes the presence of rsync. goodcastle assumes that it exists in the root of a git repository containing an entire Wordpress site. Other version control tools are available; goodcastle does not use them. == Installation Copy deploy.rb and deploy/ to the Wordpress site/git repository on your local machine, and add them to git. goodcastle does not deploy itself to servers. == Usage Fill out deploy/deploy-config.yml with your details; there's an example version of this file in the repository. You need only configure advanced-cache if you have WP Super Cache installed. You can generate the content for the 'secret_keys' block here: https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt The username is the user you would use to ssh in to your server, or to run rsync/scp to the location you wish to deploy to. I tend to create a deploy user for this purpose. When you're ready to deploy: ruby deploy.rb [branchname] If no branch is specified, goodcastle deploys out of master. Then, goodcastle: * generates a config file based on the parameters you've specified. * packages up a deployment and strips out anything that shouldn't be deployed * rsync's this to the server. (currently, goodcastle does not use --delete to do this) * tidies up after itself
