Add capistrano tasks for syncing remote and local database

branch: master
README.markdown

CapistranoDbTasks

Add database AND assets tasks to capistrano to a Rails project. It only works with capistrano 3. Older versions until 0.3 works with capistrano 2.

Currently

  • It only supports mysql and postgresql (both side remote and local)
  • Synchronize assets remote to local and local to remote

Commands mysql, mysqldump (or pg_dump, psql), bzip2 and unbzip2 must be in your PATH

Feel free to fork and to add more database support or new tasks.

Install

Add it as a gem:

    gem "capistrano-db-tasks", require: false

Add to config/deploy.rb:

    require 'capistrano-db-tasks'

    # if you haven't already specified
    set :rails_env, "production"

    # if you want to remove the dump file after loading
    set :db_local_clean, true

    # If you want to import assets, you can change default asset dir (default = system)
    # This directory must be in your shared directory on the server
    set :assets_dir, %w(public/assets public/att)
    set :local_assets_dir, %w(public/assets public/att)

    # if you want to work on a specific local environment (default = ENV['RAILS_ENV'] || 'development')
    set :locals_rails_env, "production"

Add to .gitignore

    /db/*.sql

Available tasks

app:local:sync      || app:pull     # Synchronize your local assets AND database using remote assets and database
app:remote:sync     || app:push     # Synchronize your remote assets AND database using local assets and database

assets:local:sync   || assets:pull  # Synchronize your local assets using remote assets
assets:remote:sync  || assets:push  # Synchronize your remote assets using local assets

db:local:sync       || db:pull      # Synchronize your local database using remote database data
db:remote:sync      || db:push      # Synchronize your remote database using local database data
