Rails gem which normalizes the deployment life-cycle of Rails Web App.

Based on:

  • RVM, Capistrano and Rake tasks.
  • Different environments [development test vagrant staging production]
  • Two different repositories: Development and Client remotes


Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

gem 'lebops', github: 'jlebrijo/lebops'

And then execute:


Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install lebops


Configure Capistrano Environments

1. Bundle and Capify with: capify .

2. Configure config/deploy.rb:

set :application, "pet-contest"
require 'lebops/deploy' 

3. Create particular config for each environment in deploy/[staging.rb|vagrant.rb|production.rb]. i.e.:

set :thin_servers, 1
set :thin_port, 3500
server "", :app, :web, :db, :primary => true
set :repository,  "{application}.git"
set :database_username, 'user'
set :database_password, 'password'

4. Install application:

cap [env] app:setup
