I just re-released my server_remote plugin as a gem server_remote on github. I converted it to a gem to make it easier to use in multiple apps, and to make it easier to update (see here for the blog entry on the (now obselete) plugin).It is a gem that provides support for running commands on remote server. Once set up, it provides commands via
remote shell– same as ssh’ing to the server (this is the default command, so it can be called with just
remote console– executes a
script/consoleon the server
remote logtail– executes
tail -f log/<environment>.logon the server
remote cmd <some command>executes command on the server, displaying the result. It
cd‘s to the remote app root first.
remote scp <local_file> :<remote_file>provides scp. Prefix remote files with ‘:’
config/server_remote.yml, and is grouped into profiles.
Here is the output of
Executes commands on a remote server over ssh. Configuration is in: /Users/tobias/customers/DealerIgnition/dealer_ignition/script/../config/server_remote.yml You can override the profile used with -p profile. The default profile is: app Learn more in the readme: /opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/tobias-server_remote-0.2.0/lib/server_remote/../../README.textile remote commands are: DEFAULT COMMAND shell cmd executes an arbitrary command on the server after a cd to the app path commands List all 'remote' commands console executes remote console help Provide help documentation for a command logtail executes remote tail -f on the log scp copies files over scp (prefix remote files with ':') shell executes remote shell usage prints usage message For help on a particular command, use 'remote help COMMAND'.
I plan to add other commands as needed, or you can open up
Remote::Commands and add your own.
You will need to install the gem (only once), then setup any apps where you want to use it.
