Perhaps once I get off my lazy butt, I’ll upload my Jekyll setup to Github. In the meantime, I want to show off my Rake file, which I use to deploy this blog.
Basically, the overall gist is that I have ssh keys setup with Dreamhost and I can use a single command to deploy to production rake site:deploy:pro. I haven’t seen too many sites that have a difference for development versus production, but I went ahead and added an env variable in my _config.yml so that I could distinguish where I was working. The main reason for this is for: 1) google-analytics are not deployed in development and 2) CSS is served from a subdomain within my domain on production. I really like this approach and it works well for me. If you have something similar, let me know, as I’d definitely be interested.
