Capistrano Local Precompile
If your Rails apps are anything like mine, one of the slowest parts of your deployment is waiting for asset pipeline precompilation. It's sometimes so slow, it's painful. So I went searching for some solutions. turbo-sprockets helped, but it's not a silver bullet. This gem isn't a silver bullet either, but it can help. Capistrano Local Precompile takes a different approach. It builds your assets locally and rsync's them to your web server(s).
Note: This gem is not yet compatible with Capistrano 3.
Add capistrano-local-precompile to your Gemfile:
group :development do gem 'capistrano-local-precompile', require: false end
Then add the following line to your
If you are using turbo-sprockets, just set it to enabled. Your asset will still compile locally, but they'll use turbosprockets to do so:
set :turbosprockets_enabled, true
Here's the full set of configurable options:
set :precompile_cmd # default: bundle exec rake assets:precompile set :assets_dir # default: "public/assets" set :rsync_cmd # default: "rsync -av" set :turbosprockets_enabled # default: false set :turbosprockets_backup_dir # default: "public/.assets" set :cleanexpired_cmd # default: bundle exec rake assets:clean_expired
Pull requests welcome: fork, make a topic branch, commit (squash when possible) with tests and I'll happily consider.
