Exosuit is a tool I’ve been working on to make Rails-AWS deployments almost as easy as Rails-Heroku deployments.
Back in late September 2019, I coded up an initial version of Exosuit and released a demo video of what I had built.
Since then a lot has changed, including my conception of what Exosuit even is.
My original thought was that Exosuit would be mainly a command-line tool, with a web UI in a supporting role. Now my thinking is that Exosuit will be mainly a web UI tool, with a command-line tool in a supporting role.
Here’s what I’m currently imagining the launch process to look like, roughly:
- Create an Exosuit account
- Connect Exosuit with your AWS account and let Exosuit launch an EC2 instance
git push exosuit masterto deploy your Rails application to your new EC2 instance
So far I have steps 1 and 2 complete. It might not sound like a lot, but it took me over a month of work!
Below is a demo video of what Exosuit can do so far.
