Sometimes you don't need all of the features that a powerful tool has to offer, and you'd be better off finding something lighter that only does what you need it to do.  That's the situation developer Dennis Reimann was facing when he wanted to setup an Ubuntu machine for the specific purpose of deploying Ruby apps.  After deciding that the learning curve on Chef and Puppet were a little too steep, and that they were a little more complex than what he was looking for, Reimann turned to Teleport.

Some basic facts about Teleport:

[Teleport...]
  • consists of a configuration (Telfile) plus files you want to be present on the target
  • copies itself onto the target via ssh and then runs itself there (hence the name)
  • works idempotently - run it over and over again without breaking the target

 
In the rest of his post, Reimann explains the process of setting up Teleport in a deployment folder, creating a user to deploy apps and setting up Ruby.  Check it out if you're interested in more details.
