Internal (Tumblr) docs

To create a production zip and deploy to production:

  • ensure capistrano 2.15.5 is installed
  • ensure net-ssh < 2.7.0 is installed - versions 2.7.0 and above are broken with our environment
  • download the minimal package for play activator 1.3.6 from here. Unpackage it into ~/src/activator-1.3.6-minimal or define $PLAY_CMD with an alternate location
  • run ./scripts/package.sh which will produce target/collins.zip
  • run cap publish:collins which will upload and link to release to http://repo.tumblr.net:8888/collins.zip
  • run cap ewr01 deploy to deploy to ewr01 and cap d2 deploy to deploy to d2
