We’ve just released version 2.4.1 of the Brightbox deployment gem, which includes a raft of improvements and some important changes. In general, it fixes a few corner cases with the bundler support and makes things easier to customize.
Other important improvements include
:bundle_disableto true to override this behaviour.
rakecommands are invoked using
require 'brightbox/mongrel'in your deployment recipe
:webrole is no longer compulsory and can now be undefined, improving support for unicorn-only app node type deployments
One noticeable change is that the
brightbox command has been deprecated and replaced by the
brightbox-capify command, which is more inline with Capistrano’s
capify. This really only matters when you’re setting up a new app.
If you need any help upgrading, or encounter any problems, you can email us at support at brightbox.co.uk.
