Deploy RoR With Mina

Mina Setup

Let’s take a look at setting up Mina with Puma. First, you’ll need to add Mina and mina-puma in Gemfile.

Then install gems and execute the initial Mina Command for generating a config/deploy.rb.

# Set the domain or ip address of the remote server.
set :domain, 'yourdomain'

# Set the folder of the remote server where Mina will deploy your app.
set :deploy_to, 'path/to/directory'

# Set a link to the repository. Better git protocol.
set :repository, 'git@...'

# Set the name of a branch you plan to deploy as default master.
set :branch, 'master'

# Fill in the names of the files and directories that will be symlinks to the shared directory.
# All folders will be created automatically on Mina Setup.
# Don't forget to add a path to the uploads folder if you are using Dragonfly or Carrierwaves.
# Otherwise, you will lose your uploads on each deploy.
set :shared_dirs, fetch(:shared_dirs, []).push('log', 'tmp/pids', 'tmp/sockets', 'public/uploads')
set :shared_files, fetch(:shared_files, []).push('config/database.yml', 'config/secrets.yml', 'config/puma.rb')

# Username of ssh for access to the remote server.
set :user, 'root'

# This is not a required field, you can use it to set an app name for easy recognition.
set :application_name, 'MyApp'

# Set ruby version. If you have RVM installed globally, you'll also need to set an RVM path,
# like set:rvm_use_path, '/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm'.
# You can find the RVM location with rvm info command.
task :environment do
invoke :'rvm:use', 'ruby-2.5.1@default'
end

By default, Mina will create all folders mentioned in shared_dirs and shared_files.
