This might not be the right area to post in, but I have a slightly more complex question about how people deal with this.

Currently I work in a multi platform environment for each Silverstripe project, I have:

* A local development machine
* An internal development server
* An external staging server
* A live server

My source code is stored in an SVN repo, I was using Beanstalk, because it can "deploy" to multiple environments and used to deploy SVN:Externals along with the repo.

Unfortunately, Beanstalk have removed SVN:Externals support, so I was looking at other ways to do this.

I was looking at either writing a basic python script that I could add to each project and run on the server, or maybe using buildout. Or even maybe creating a simple bash script.

I was wondering what other people do in these situations? Any advice would be handy.

Hey Mo,

Found this at Beanstalk:


Never used them (Beanstalk) myself. We pulled (Update) to test, then deployed via rsync to live. We don't have a staging machine though, so that makes it a bit simpler.
