Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'capistrano3-nginx', '~> 3.0.3'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install capistrano3-nginx

Usage

Require in Capfile to use the default task:

require 'capistrano/nginx'

Make sure pty is enabled in deploy.rb

set :pty, true

Make sure server has sudo role

server 'example.com',
  user: 'with_sudo_access',
  roles: %w{sudo}

You will get the following tasks

cap -T | grep "cap nginx"
cap nginx:start                    # Start nginx service
cap nginx:stop                     # Stop nginx service
cap nginx:reload                   # Reload nginx service
cap nginx:restart                  # Restart nginx service
cap nginx:site:add                 # Creates the site configuration and upload it to the available folder
cap nginx:site:disable             # Disables the site removing the symbolic link located in the enabled folder
cap nginx:site:enable              # Enables the site creating a symbolic link into the enabled folder
cap nginx:site:remove              # Removes the site removing the configuration file from the available folder
cap nginx:gzip_static              # Compress all js and css files in :nginx_static_dir with gzip
cap nginx:configtest               # Configtest nginx service
