Pulsar Jump to Story

When it comes to complex deployment strategies with Ruby applications, capistrano has always been the tool of choice. This usually involves creating a Capfile which sits alongside your application. Matteo Latini let us know about a library by Nebulab called Pulsar. Pulsar is a deploy and configuration manager which allows you to run Capistrano tasks for your application from a separate repository where all your deployment configurations are stored. With Pulsar you can deploy without having the application you’re trying to deploy on your local machine.
