One neat trick that I found out about Capistrano 2.0 was the ability to run sequenced tasks via the command line. An example is this blog, first I run
bundle exec cap build then
bundle exec cap deploy. I don't want to add the
build task as a dependency to
deploy since I like view the site prior to deploying 75% of the time, the other 25% is quick updates and typos that I find edit, fix, commit, and deploy quickly. I'm not saving much, but just thought it was neat.
bundle exec cap build deploy
This will first run the
build task and then run the
deploy task. Simple and quick.
