Rails in production precompile


Recently I have spin up server Ubuntu, Rails … server is running well. However, in case you update rails folder under /home/rails stuff will not work any longer due to the fact services such nginx & unicorn need to be stopped, besides in rails directory ruby precompile command need to run each time update has been done. This is a bit problem for those who need updating theirs rails app, therefore I have written small script doing all at once so in case you would like to take a look at I can send you so you could eventually publish it?

I know this is an old post, but that script sounds interesting! For anyone stumbling across this, you might want to look into using a tool like Capistrano for deploying changes to your Rails application. Among other things, it allows you write post-deployment hooks to run the various tasks needed. For more info, check out:
