Pea Green Boat, Automating FTP deployment

leave a comment »

We are using NAnt with an FTP build task

I will combine this with our subversion repository to enable one click deploy. Also may convert Selenium script so we can run that at the same time.

There does not seem to be an official FTP task, however there is the one mentioned above. It does not include delete for some reason which is unforunate. Perhaps we should switch to Ant which does have a fully working delete.

Additional tasks required:

  1. FTP task
  2. NantContrib (Enables Subversion interaction)
Download these and place them in a tasks folder underneath the nant installation directory, and then reference them using the loadtasks element.
We now have a bunch of targets we can run for automated deployment over FTP.
There is more on this on the project wiki page.
