There are three main recipes, defined in recap/recipes/static.rb, recap/recipes/ruby.rb and recap/recipes/rails.rb that include tasks for static, ruby-based and rails sites respectively. One of these should be required at the top of your Capfile.

The static recipe includes all the main deployment behaviour. It provides everything you should need to push static content up to one or more servers, as well as the ability to rollback to a previous release if you make a mistake.

The ruby recipe builds on this with support for bundler, to automatically install any bundled gems. It also includes foreman support, starting and restarting processes defined in a Procfile.

The rails recipe includes all the above, and adds automatic database migration and asset compilation to each deploy.

To swap between each of these, simply change the top line of your Capfile to require the one you want.
