I use S3 to host my site and the s3_website plugin to deploy, if you don’t do both of these, delete the s3_website.yml file and edit the deploy raketask to fit your needs.

If you plan on using S3 make sure you edit the configs:

  • FIRST - add the s3_website.yml file to your gitignore so your credentials don’t end up on the web.
  • s3_website.yml
    • add your s3_id. s3_secret, and s3_bucket
  • Update the Rakefile notify task to use your url
    • replace site = "www.YOUR-URL.com" with your actual url.
