Using development/staging/production deployments with Capistrano? Want to double-check that you really want to deploy to a particular environment?
Add this to your /config/deploy/[stage].rb
# Make sure we really want to target this environment! puts "\e[0;35m =======================\e[0m\n" puts "\e[0;35m Really deploy to PRODUCTION?\e[0m\n" puts "\e[0;35m =======================\e[0m\n" # Fetch user response response = Capistrano::CLI.ui.ask "\e[0;32m [y]es or [n]o?\e[0m\n" # Abort if required unless response.to_s == 'y' puts "\e[0;31m Aborting......\e[0m\n" exit end
Voila! You have pretty prompting to confirm what you're doing.
