About Capo.io

What does Capo.io do?

Capo.io is a Capfile generator for the popular deployment tool Capistrano. You can select from a library of recipes to compose your Capfile, or use your own.

Where do our recipes come from?

We selected and tested a number of recipes that we thought were useful. They are available in our public Github repository. You can submit your own via a pull request for now, but we may streamline this process down the line.


We hope that by making Capo.io open source, people will help us improve it. Use Github for all your bug reports, fixes and feature requests.

The Capo.io gem

If you're anything like us, you hate clicking. Our Capo.io gem helps you ditch that mouse or trackpad and give your keyboard some love. You can search and add recipes straight from the command line!

Why did we build it?

Capo.io was built to serve our own needs, but we feel it could serve a more general purpose for the community. It was built in 48 hours as part of the 2012 Rails Rumble hackathon so it is by no means perfect, but we hope to improve it as time goes by.

Need help?

If you need help, feel free to email team@capo.io or send us a tweet. All of our Twitter accounts are in the footer of the site. Of course you can submit an issue or a bug report via Github as well!
