= Usage

== Installation

Install the gem:
  sudo gem install echoe

If you haven't already, make sure is configured locally and your password is correctly set.

== Project configuration

Organize your gem according to the usual structure:


You can add the <tt>bin/</tt> or <tt>ext/</tt> folders if you have executables or extensions, respectively.

Your <tt>CHANGELOG</tt> should be formatted as follows (including newlines):

  v2.1. newest change

  v2. older change

  v1.9. oldest change

This way Echoe can parse the latest version and changeset message automatically.

Your <tt>Rakefile</tt> needs the following minimal contents:

  require 'echoe''gem_name')

More advanced configuration is described in the Echoe class.

== Deploying your gem

To deploy the gem and documentation:

  rake manifest
  rake release
  rake publish_docs

Once you've built your manifest, you only need to rebuild it if you add or remove files from the package structure.
