Deploying Ruby Applications to AWS Elastic Beanstalk with Git (awsblog.com)
26 points by dpaluy 1014 days ago | 8 comments



Glad to see the free service and a dedicated ruby blog.

I successfully deployed one of my apps to AWS via Elastic Beanstalk with no issue, while previously I used Rubber to manage my deployments. I think I like beanstalk because of its zero-cost and simplicity. Though I haven't figured out how to use private gem.

I'm loving Ruby support in Elastic Beanstalk so far. My biggest complaint is that there isn't really a way to launch worker processes like resque or delayed_job. A separate autoscaling group that can run a rake task would be nice. Support for a Heroku style Procfile would be especially nice.

You could probably use 'container commands' to start/stop worker processes after each deployment. I'm only reading the Elastic Beanstalk docs for the first time, so I haven't tried it myself - but it looks like it could be the right solution:

True, but it would be nice to have separate instances for workers vs app servers.

-----


Oh absolutely. As you said, procfile (or similar) support would be amazing.

For MVC3 apps how does this compare to appharbor?

AWS Elastic Beanstalk doesn't really support Git push of source code for compiled languages like .NET and Java. Details here: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/message.jspa?messageID=343686

That seems like a feature that I would really miss. Too bad.
