symlink_fast 1.0.0 released (Capistrano plugin)

Note: this post was migrated from my old Tumblr-backed blog

I just released version 1.0.0 of symlink_fast. This is a plugin for Capistrano which simplifies post-deploy config symlinking by providing an interface for the task and doing it all in a single call to run. On larger application deployments with large numbers of configs that need to be symlinked, the time savings can be significant.

symlink_fast has been released as a gem on It can be installed either by typing:

gem install symlink_fast

or by adding the following to your Gemfile:

gem 'symlink_fast'

There is a Github page for the project:
