PHD gives you Passenger-based Heroku-like Deployment.
If you have Passenger installed on a desktop/server, you should be able to:
$ git clone git://github.com/remi/phd.git $ cd phd $ sudo ./phd_server_setup $ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/phd /path/to/this/dir/phd # phd needs to be in your PATH
And then, from another machine, you should be able to:
$ cd my-git-directory-with-a-Rails-or-Rack-application $ git remote add my-server email@example.com
Now all you need to do is create a
.pushand file in the root of your
application (which specifies commands that will be run on the server):
$ echo 'phd $0 myapp.myserver.com' > .pushand $ git commit -a -m "added .pushand for PHD deployment"
Now, when you can push your repo to the server and it'll detect your Rails/Rack application, set it up on passenger, and run it!
$ git push my-server master
That's it! http://myapp.myserver.com should work (assuming you setup the DNS)
PHD is just 1 tiny script. PushAnd is what makes all of the git magic work.
