Librarian - A Framework for Bundlers. Librarian-Chef is at:
Latest commit b968cd9 @yfeldblum yfeldblum Switch to popen3 on Windows (mswin and mingw).
Skip cygwin for now because that tries to emulate a Posix environment. If someone running on cygwin encounters a problem, we can add it to the bunch.

Should address #171.

Librarian Build Status Code Climate

Librarian is a framework for writing bundlers, which are tools that resolve, fetch, install, and isolate a project's dependencies, in Ruby.

A bundler written with Librarian will expect you to provide a specfile listing your project's declared dependencies, including any version constraints and including the upstream sources for finding them. Librarian can resolve the spec, write a lockfile listing the full resolution, fetch the resolved dependencies, install them, and isolate them in your project.

A bundler written with Librarian will be similar in kind to Bundler, the bundler for Ruby gems that many modern Rails applications use.
