Hi everyone,
deploying to online dev and production server takes a lot of my time.
What software do you use to deploy? Opensource or small team solutions preferred.
Appreciate your feedback!
Thanks! Jan
Hey Jan - At my dayjob we use a fairly simple Python script based around Fabric that works really well. We keep tweaking it as things come up and makes a deployment as simple as:

fab stage deploy:master    // Deploy to staging
fab deploy:master  // Deploy to production

It's not perfect, but handles 99% of things we've ever needed to do including compiling javascript files, updating the branch to latest, ensuring Composer dependencies are up to date, etc.

I've heard pretty good things about Deployer in the past but haven't used it. It is PHP-based.
