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.
