Jeremy Cook: Continuous Deployment with Symfony2, Jenkins and Capifony
Jeremy Cook has a recent post to his site showing how he set up Capifony and Jenkins to do continuous deployment with a Symfony2-based application (including a full recipe for the deployment).
It seems that many people talk about setting up a continuous deployment system but few actually take the plunge and make it a reality. I've recently set up continuous deployment for an API project at work and thought I would blog about how I got it all to work.
He starts by laying out the plan for the system and what it's intended to do (an excellent first step). This is followed by details on Capifony and what kind of advantages it offers for deployment. He shares the full contents of his "deploy.rb" file that includes the actual steps for the deployment including a git checkout, a Composer install, warming up the Symfony cache and restarting Apache. He also includes how they have it set up with Jenkins, having the build triggered when the main project's build completes successfully.
