capistrano + ftp only hosting provider

The story

You get client, he buys cheap hosting with FTP only. Now in modern times we all use git, VM, some CI and Capistrano to ease work. Oh and FTP?

The solution

Cli ftp client LFTP, hard to understand, but overall great tool. Bellow is my Cap file for such hosts.

config/deploy.rb

#APP
set :application, "GreatWebsite"
set :app_path, "./worpdress/"
set :scm, :none

#FTP
set :login, "great_website"
set :password, "changeme"
set :ftp_host, "www.great_website.squarebox.eu"
set :deploy_to, "/domains/www.great_website.si/public/"

Capfile

load 'config/deploy'

desc "FTP Sync && Mount"
namespace :deploy do

  desc "Sync remote by default"
  task :default do
    remote.default
  end

  namespace :remote do
      desc "Mount remote to local #{application}"
      task :mount do
          `mkdir ./mnt/#{application} -p`
          `curlftpfs ftp://#{login}:#{password}@#{url} ./mnt/#{application}`
      end

      desc "Unmount #{application}"
      task :umount do
          `fusermount -u ./mnt/#{application}`
      end

      desc "Sync to remote server using lftp"
      task :sync do
          `lftp -c "set ftp:list-options -a; open ftp://#{login}:#{password}@#{ftp_host}; lcd #{app_path}; cd #{deploy_to}; mirror --reverse --delete --use-cache --verbose --allow-chown --allow-suid --no-umask --parallel=2 --exclude-glob .git --exclude-glob *.log"`

      end

      desc "Sync app to remote server"
      task :default do
          self.sync
      end
  end

end
