List of Rake tasks

The list of Rake tasks.

If you want to confirm all Rake tasks from command line interface, you can run the following.

bundle exec rails rake -T

General usage note: Remember that each command will be invoked in a particular environment (configuration, database). The default environment when nothing is specified is "development". In production, you usually prepend all commands with RAILS_ENV=production to opt into the production environment. This is not necessary if you're using the Docker images, because that environment variable is set in the image for you. Similarly, prepending bundle exec is not necessary when using Docker. The following invocations are equivalent:

Standalone: RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake mastodon:users:admins
Docker: docker-compose run --rm web rake mastodon:users:admins

Furthermore, in the command, rake is interchangeable with rails
