Capistrano + Rails: Tagging production deploys

Just like Ruby Gems tag their version releases to the corresponding Git commit, it can be helpful to track production deploys within the commit history. This task does the tagging for you.

Capistrano 3

Copy
# lib/capistrano/tasks/deploy.rb namespace :deploy do ... desc 'Tag the deployed revision' task :tag_revision do date = Date.today.to_s puts `git tag deploy-#{date} #{fetch :current_revision}` puts `git push --tags origin` end end
Copy
# config/deploy/production.rb after 'deploy:finished', 'deploy:tag_revision'

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
