Prospector

Prospector provides a simple integration with the Gem Prospector API allowing your team to stay on top of important updates to gems in your Ruby project.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'prospector'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install prospector

Configuration

Projects can be configured via environment variables, a code block, or a RubyMotion configuration.

Environment Variables

export PROSPECTOR_ENABLED=true
export PROSPECTOR_SECRET_TOKEN=token
export PROSPECTOR_CLIENT_SECRET=secret
export PROSPECTOR_BACKGROUND_ADAPTER=sidekiq

Code Block

Prospector.configure do |config|
  config.secret_token = 'token from service'
  config.client_secret = 'secret from service'
  config.background_adapter = :sidekiq

  config.enabled = Rails.env.production?
end

RubyMotion

A common configuration for a RubyMotion project follows, enabling only for release builds.

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  app.prospector do |config|
    config.secret_token = 'token from service'
    config.client_secret = 'secret from service'
  end

  app.release do
    app.prospector do |config|
      config.enabled = true
    end
  end
end

Usage

Rails

Rails integration includes automatic detection and support for ActiveJob as well as Sidekiq, to deliver usage details to the Prospector API in the background on app boot. Additionally, the rake task mentioned below is available to use at any time you see fit, for example as part of your deployment process.

Valid background adapter options are active_job, sidekiq, inline, and none. ActiveJob is preferred and chosen in Rais 4.2 and above with built-in ActiveJob support.

# config/initializers/prospector.rb

Prospector.configure do |config|
  # Will default to using ActiveJob
  # config.background_adapter = :active_job
  # config.background_adapter = :sidekiq
  # config.background_adapter = :inline
  # config.background_adapter = :none
end

You can use the none background adapter to skip sending information to the API automatically, and instead call at any point in time you see fit, whether via the rake task or manually.

RubyMotion

Integration with RubyMotion is accomplished via a Rake task that can be run by hand, or simply letting the build system do it's magic. By default, if you have enabled Prospector via an environment variable, or a configuration block, any time the binary is built for a device (such as for distribution) then Prospector will be notified without any further action.

Rake Task

If you prefer to notify the Prospector service at any other time, you can use the included Rake task.

rake prospector:deliver

Manually

If you prefer to notify the Prospector API without using the included Rails or RubyMotion support, you can always call directly.

Prospector.notify! if Prospector.enabled?

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release to create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
