Shorten Capistrano Revisions04 Jan 2012
So, if you are like me then you like for the code on your production server to take up as little space as nessisary. Also, you like capistrano.
Lets face it, using a simple
cap deploy to fire off your code to production or staging is awesome but capistrano likes to leave behind old
revisions of your code each time you deploy. So, often I find myself having to run a
cap deploy:cleanup. This can get annoying so a found a
clever way to make capistrano clean up after itself after each deploy.
after :deploy, 'deploy:cleanup'
