I've got RBenv installed to ~/.rbenv. What would I put at top of Ruby script to make it executable by RBenv?



to no avail.

This project can't offer you support for rbenv, as it was only extracted from rbenv but doesn't have anything else to do with rbenv.

That said, the shebang for your ruby scripts should be one of the following:

  • #!/usr/bin/env ruby: For most of your scripts. If rbenv is properly setup in your environment, you don't need to "teach" your executables to use rbenv explicitly. That's the whole point of rbenv.
  • #!/usr/bin/env ruby-local-exec: For executables inside a project that has a ".rbenv-version" file, and they absolutely must be executed with that exact version of ruby. Useful for production deployments.

Thanks, that's great.
