My Deploy Script

Posted on

Here's my basic rake task I use to deploy my blog:

desc 'Deploy to Heroku and push to GitHub'
task :deploy do
  unless `git status -s`.length == 0
    puts 'WARNING: There are uncommitted changes'
    puts 'Commit any changes before deploying.'

  `git push origin master`
  `git push heroku master`
  `heroku run rake assets:precompile`

Notice I run rake assets:precompile after I deploy to Heroku. I am using asset_sync to host my assets on S3 instead of Heroku. There is a known issue with Heroku and this gem, so that's my workaround. Having it in my little rake task means I won't forget any more :)
