I ran into a situation today where I needed to grab a specific version of two files from one branch in our repository and merge it into another branch. Normally I would use cherry-pick for this sort of thing but when you are working with developers who arent used to the way of Git, that can be hard. Especially in our situation where most of them are used to Subversion so they make changes to many different files over the period of hours or worse yet, days before they commit their changes.
Hopefully by now you have had a chance to play around with Capistrano and had a chance to deploy one of your apps. If you have and your anything like me, Im sure you ran into a situation where you needed to have a bit more flexibility in your deployment.
I love developing in ColdFusion, but one of the reasons I spend time learning other languages/frameworks is so I can get a feel for what things others are doing that could help make our jobs a little easier. Lets face it, the ColdFusion community is a little slow to progress sometimes and there is alot of innovation happening in other communities.
I finally got around to updating the CFWheels Textmate bundle to version 1.02 last night. Its mostly a few fixes related to snippets but the primary reason for updating it was to add full support for the DBMigrate plugin. Now you can generate migration files and use shortcuts for all of the migration methods in the plugin. Speeding up development just a little bit more.
