Create your new rails project
rails new myapp cd myapp
Get git initialized
Edit your .gitignore file to include some more options
# Added from https://github.com/github/gitignore/blob/master/Rails.gitignore *.rbc *.sassc .sass-cache capybara-*.html .rspec /.bundle /vendor/bundle /log/* /tmp/* /db/*.sqlite3 /public/system/* /coverage/ /spec/tmp/* **.orig rerun.txt pickle-email-*.html
Now add the files to git and commit
git add . git commit -a -m 'initial commit'
Edit your Gemfile and uncomment capistrano then run:
Now we’re gonna “capify” the application, run:
You should see this output:
[add] writing './Capfile' [add] writing './config/deploy.rb' [done] capified!
Capistrano logs into your production servers and checks out the latest version of your production branch, we need to get our app onto a scm server that the production server has access to. I’m going to use bitbucket.org as the example, but it could be anywhere.
git remote add origin https://bitbucket.org/my-user-name/myapp.git git push origin master
