Create a folder or go into your existing project folder and run

Make sure that you run the following commands outside your application's directory to avoid naming conflicts if you're planning to deploy a non-Ruby application.
$ bundle init

This will create an empty Gemfile. Open the file in an editor and add the source of the corresponding gem server and the dkdeploy-core gem:

source ''
gem 'dkdeploy-core', '~> 8.0.0'

Now run bundler:

$ bundle

You should see bundler resolving dependencies and installing the required gems:

Fetching gem metadata from
Resolving dependencies...
Using rake 10.4.2
Using capistrano-stats 1.1.1
Using i18n 0.7.0

Your bundle is complete!
Use `bundle show [gemname]` to see where a bundled gem is installed.

Initialize Capistrano

Run in your project root

$ bundle exec cap install STAGES='dev,integration,testing,production'

This command will create the following Capistrano file structure with all the standard pre-configured constants. Please be aware of the difference to the native installation of Capistrano. Certainly you have to adjust config/deploy.rb and respective stages and customize them for your needs.

    |-- Capfile
    |-- Gemfile
    |-- Gemfile.lock
    |-- config
    |   |-- deploy
    |   |   |-- dev.rb
    |   |   |-- integration.rb
    |   |   |-- production.rb
    |   |   `-- testing.rb
    |   `-- deploy.rb
    `-- lib
        `-- capistrano
            `-- tasks

Before we continue, we have to alter the Capfile in your root directory:

# Load DSL and Setup Up Stages
require 'capistrano/setup'

# Includes default deployment tasks
require 'capistrano/deploy'

# Include dkdeploy gem
require 'dkdeploy'

# Includes dkdeploy deployment tasks
require 'capistrano/dkdeploy/core'

# Load custom tasks from `lib/capistrano/tasks' if you have any defined
Dir.glob('lib/capistrano/tasks/*.rake').each { |r| import r }

When you run

$ bundle exec cap -T

you should see all available tasks. You are now ready to deploy your first project!
