Chef (solo), Capistrano and Roundsman Bootstrap
This repository contains a collection of cookbooks and configuration files, which can be used to manage your server dependencies and deploy your Rails, Sinatra or Middleman app. This is al made possible by Chef (solo), Capistrano and Roundsman, which combines the two for easy deployment.
Using all of this goodness, requires you to follow these easy steps:
config/deploy.rb(e.g. if you need to add a new stage) and
config/deploy/apache-rails.rb(in case you're deploying a Rails app on Apache). If you're using Vagrant, you might want to edit
config/deploy/vagrant.rbalso. When you use Nginx instead of Apache,
config/deploy/nginx-rails.rbis the stage to use and when you're deploying a static website created with Middleman, you could use
That's it. When using Vagrant, you'll want to deploy to that stage. This is done by running
cap vagrant deploy:setup and after that
cap vagrant deploy. If everything went according to plan, you can deploy to your actual server by running the
cap deploy:setup (or
cap production deploy:setup) command. When that's done, run:
This setup will either install Apache, MySQL and Passenger or Passenger compiled into Nginx and has been tested on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It can be used to deploy multiple projects. Just clone it into a separate 'deploy' project and create a new stage for each of your websites.
