A port of Merb's dependency system to a Rails plugin.
Install the plugin
script/plugin install git://github.com/ddollar/dependencies.git
Add the following line to your config/environment.rb
config.plugins = [:dependencies, :all]
Add the following line to your .gitignore
Create a config/dependencies.rb file that looks like:
dependency 'gem' dependency 'gem', '1.0.1' dependency 'gem', :require_as => 'Gem' dependency 'gem', :only => %w(test staging) dependency 'gem', :except => 'production' with_options(:only => 'test') do |test| test.dependency 'tester-gem' end
Remove or comment out any config.gem lines from config/environment.rb or config/environments/*.rb
Install the gems into your project and keep them up to date using:
Alternatively you can use the following rake task to read your existing config.gem declarations and output a file suitable for this plugin. This task will appropriately handle any gems that you are currently loading on a per-environment basis as well.
