Ansible Role: Ruby

CI

Installs Ruby and bundler gem on Linux.

Requirements

None.

Role Variables

Available variables are listed below, along with default values (see defaults/main.yml):

workspace: /root

The location where temporary files will be downloaded in preparation for Ruby installation.

ruby_install_bundler: true

Whether this role should install Bundler.

ruby_install_gems: []

A list of Ruby gems to install (just the name of the gem to be installed). This is meant as a simple convenience, and will only install the latest version of the gem. If you need to install gems with more options or specificity, you can do so elsewhere in your playbook.

ruby_install_gems_user: username

The user account under which Ruby gems will be installed. Defaults to the ansible_ssh_user if not set.

ruby_install_from_source: false

By default, this role will install whatever version of ruby is available through your system's package manager (apt or yum). You can install whatever version you like (including the latest release) by setting this to true and/or updating the ruby_download_url and ruby_version.

ruby_download_url: http://cache.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/3.0/ruby-3.0.0.tar.gz

The URL from which Ruby will be downloaded (only used if ruby_install_from_source is true).

ruby_version: 3.0.0

The version of ruby that will be installed (only used if ruby_install_from_source is true).

ruby_source_configure_command: ./configure --enable-shared

The configure command that will be run (only used if ruby_install_from_source is true).

ruby_rubygems_package_name: rubygems

The name of the rubygems package. Generally, the default should work; but it will be set to rubygems-integration automatically on Ubuntu Trusty (14.04).

Dependencies

None.
