mina

Default Plugins

mina comes with a variaty of plugins for you to use out of the box. As mina is primarely written in ruby and for rails, it has ruby plugins, but it can be used to deploy any other application (static, js, php, etc)

To use a plugin you only need to require it in your deploy.rb. Most of the plugins come with a set of their own variables which are usable, chengable and overwritable.

Example:

require 'mina/rails'

set :rails_env, 'staging'

You can also override a variable from command line like:

$ mina deploy rails_env=development
