For our fresh new node project I wanted to use a solid tool. I had heard of Capistrano to deploy everything an anything, so I started to use it. Capistrano is probably a great tool if you code in ruby, but if you don’t know ruby at all, this is horrible! I persist to use it and when I tried to upgrade to the version 3 that has no documentation I abandoned and decided to code my own deployment tool in node.js. Shipit was born!
