Vlad the Deployer is pragmatic application deployment automation, without mercy. Much like Capistrano, but with 1/10th the complexity. Vlad integrates seamlessly with Rake, and uses familiar and standard tools like ssh and rsync. Impale your application on the heartless spike of the Deployer. == FEATURES/PROBLEMS: * Full deployment automation stack. * Turnkey deployment for mongrel+apache+svn. * Supports single server deployment with just 3 variables defined. * Built on rake. Easy. Engine is small. * Very few dependencies. All simple. * Uses ssh with your ssh settings already in place. * Uses rsync for efficient transfers. * Run remote commands on one or more servers. * Mix and match local and remote tasks. * Compatible with all of your tab completion shell script rake-tastic goodness. * Ships with tests that actually pass in 0.028 seconds! * Does NOT support Windows right now (we think). Coming soon in 1.2.
