RubyGems, the apt-get for ruby   25 Sep 04
[print link all ]

Why do I love Debian? Coz of the package management system. Now Ruby has the same nice feature, called RubyGems

Install:

ruby install.rb
See what is available:
gem --remote --list
Search for the string Doom in descriptions:
gem --remote --search Doom
Install progressbar:
gem --remote --install progressbar

Now relax, have a good milkshake in the sun. A big big thanks to the developers: Rich Kilmer, Chad Fowler, David Black, Paul Brannan, Jim Weirch, Curt Hibbs, Gavin Sinclair, etc.

Interesting Ruby page: semantics & semiotics; code manufacture   25 Sep 04

Some very interesting ruby stuff:

  • Artificial Neural Networks: Implemented a multilayer backpropagating artificial neural network using a momentum term and optionally a weight decay term.
  • Borges mod_ruby Integration: I have managed to get Borges running using mod_ruby. I will produce a library ready version of that and check it in the Borges project.
  • and much more

Why's (Poignant) Guide to Ruby   25 Sep 04
[print link all ]

(Source: whytheluckystiff) The (Poignant) Guide is a new approach to teaching Ruby, emphasizing the lingual traits of Ruby and illustrating its uniqueness with comics, visual imagery, and songs with accompanying hand gestures.

This date marks the release of the first three chapters. Feel free to tell your friends and family (a.k.a. Slashdot) about the news. With enough input and support, this book could see completion by next year. Hopefully this is a step towards explaining to the world why Ruby is such an enticing and voluptuous gem to behold.

Go and enjoy the book

Okay, I’ll keep this short. If you want to read more about my motivation, head over to the announcement on my site. motivation

Rake 0.40. is out   25 Sep 04
[print link all ]
Rake is a make-like utility written entirely in Ruby. It allows to you specify build target and actions, with the action being standard Ruby code.

You can get Rake from rubyforge. If you have rubygems installed, then all you need to do is

  gem -i rake

If you have a very recent version of rubygems (i.e. from CVS), then the gen-rdoc option finally produces a decent rendition of the Rake documentation locally.

[ANN] rpa-base 0.1.0 "kitanai"   25 Sep 04
[print link all ]
(Source: Mauricio Fernandez)
 The Ruby Production Archive (RPA) will provide packages of Ruby
 libraries and programs in a form that allows production use, engineered
 through a stringent process resembling FreeBSD's or Debian's.

 rpa-base is a port/package manager designed to support RPA. Its scope and
 purposes are different to those of other systems like RubyGems.

 rpa-base 0.1.0 is now available on http://rpa-base.rubyforge.org .
 Please keep in mind that this is *not* a RPA release (that is, a release
 of the repository) but just a release of the rpa-base tool itself. We
 have provided several sample ports/packages for testing purposes, but
 they don't formally belong to RPA. Read below for information on the
 libs/apps packaged so far.

 rpa-base requires Ruby 1.8.1 (certainly 1.8 at least, it might work on
 1.8.0); it has been tested on several Linux distributions, FreeBSD and
 win32. We would appreciate feedback (both positive and negative) under
 those or any other architecture.

 It takes but a couple minutes to install and will allow you to do

 rpa install instiki ruvi

 ;-)
 (NOTE: ruvi, the cool pure-Ruby vim clone, won't work on win32)

 Features
 ========

 rpa-base is a port/package manager designed to support RPA's client-side
 package management. You can think of it as RPA's apt-get + dpkg. It
 features the following (working right now):

  * sane dependency management: rpa-base installs dependencies as needed,
    keeps track of reverse dependencies on uninstall, and will remove no
    longer needed dependencies
  * atomic (de)installs: operations on the local RPA installation are atomic
    transactions; the system has been designed to survive ruby crashes (OS
    crashes too on POSIX systems)
  * modular, extensible design: the 2-phase install is similar to FreeBSD and
    Debian's package creation; rpa-base packages need not be restricted
    to installing everything under a single directory ("1 package, 1 dir"
    paradigm)
  * rdoc integration: RDoc documentation for libraries is generated at install
    time (currently disabled on win32)
  * ri integration: ri data files are generated for all the libraries managed
    by RPA; you can access this information with ri-rpa (currently disabled on
    win32)
  * handling C extensions: if you have the required C toolchain, rpa-base can
    compile extensions as needed
  * unit testing: when a library is installed, its unit tests are run; the
    installation is canceled if they don't pass
