Dkdeploy uses by default it’s own copy strategy and overwrites the :scm constant (with :copy). The tasks in this namespace are wrappers around the copy_strategy. If you want to change the :scm strategy, for example to :git, you could customize that for your project. In that case these tasks are irrelevant.


Checks if the local source directory ( set in the :copy_source variable ) exists. Raises a fatal exception if the directory does not exist. Otherwise no message is shown.


Copies the source file structure to the server excluding the not wanted elements. Usage with

$ cap dev copy:create_release


  • tar needs to be installed on both machines.
  • SSH config that enables SSH connection to the server.
