Git and project subdirectories

I'm testing out Bamboo, putting together a rails project similar to this blog article:

The issue I think is that our git project does not have the rails project at the root. Our git repo is laid out so that the rails app is in a subfolder, because we have other non-rails files at the root also. I think this is causing issues like, bundler not finding the gemfile, etc. (which makes sense because you couldn't run these commands from a folder above the rails folder in command line.

How can I do this without changing my repo? I was thinking that maybe I could issue a cd command as a task, but no dice I'm afraid. And I don't see how I can set a working folder for bundle or rake?

As the author of the Ruby Plugin for bamboo I had never considered this problem, that said I can most certainly assist in resolving it.

As each of the "tasks" spawns independent processes I will just need to configure this for all tasks within the build.

I have added an issue on my project to solve it

Thanks for taking the time to post this question!


This morning I shipped an updated version with this feature added.

Screen shots illustrate the case where a project in bitbucket has a rails project directory nested within it which needs to be tested (see example project below).

If you have any issues I am happy to help.

Dave, is this really an OnDemand question?

Shoot! I thought I picked the right one. No its about the downloaded version. My bad.
