Capistrano is a remote server automation tool.

It supports the scripting and execution of arbitrary tasks and includes a set of sane-default deployment workflows.

Capistrano can be used to:

  • Reliably deploy web application to any number of machines simultaneously, in sequence or as a rolling set
  • To automate audits of any number of machines (checking login logs, enumerating uptimes, and/or applying security patches)
  • To script arbitrary workflows over SSH
  • To automate common tasks in software teams.
  • To drive infrastructure provisioning tools such as chef-soloAnsible or similar.

Capistrano is also very scriptable and can be integrated with any other Ruby software to form part of a larger tool.
