This is an addon to deploy ember-cli based apps to one or more servers via SSH. The deployment steps are as follows:

  1. The Ember app is built and the assets are stored somewhere.
  2. For each host defined in the config, upload the assets over SSH.
  3. Optionally make the uploaded asset active by symlinking it.
  4. Optionally delete old releases.

Note Step 1 is not performed by this addon. It is expected that the assets are already built either by ember build or another addon like ember-cli-deploy-build.


  • Ember.js v3.8 or above
  • Ember CLI v2.13 or above
  • Node.js v8 or above


ember install ember-cli-deploy-easy-ssh

ember-cli-deploy will add a deployment file to your app at config/deploy.js. This addon requires some configuration to be set in that file.

Required config

ENV['easy-ssh'] = {
  hosts: [
      username: 'foo',
      host: 'server1.baz'
      username: 'bar',
      host: 'server2.baz'
  targetDir: '/var/www/app_dir',
  sourceDir: 'build/staging',

hosts - An array of hosts to push built assets to. The user will be used to connect to the host and will be the owner of the files.

targetDir - The directory on the hosts to upload to. New assets will be pushed to a directory called releases (see releasesDir below) inside of targetDir.

sourceDir - The directory containing the assets to upload. Everything inside sourceDir will be uploaded to each host.

Optional config

releasesDir - The name of the directory inside targetDir that holds the releases of the application. Defaults to releases. Releases can be provided by any addon that sets the revisionKey attribute. Falls back to a timestamp format if this is not set.

targetLink - The name of the symlink to the current release directory. Defaults to current.

keep - The number of past revisions to keep, ordered from most recent to least. Defaults to 5.


To upload the built assets run the following from your project's directory where --environment is the target environment like --staging or --production.

ember deploy --environment

The above command will not symlink the new revision or delete old revisions. To do so, add the --activate flag.
