Mygem

create and publish your first ruby gem

  • clone/fork/download the project
  • find and replace in all the files:
    • 'Mygem' with 'Yourgem'
    • 'mygem' with 'yourgem'
  • add real functionalities to the gem (very optional :p)
  • edit yourgem.gemspec (remember to add other files if you need to)
  • gem build yourgem.gemspec
  • gem install yourgem-0.0.1.gem

  • launch irb

irb> require 'yourgem'

irb> Yourgem.works?

true

  • gem push yourgem-x.y.z.gem
  • gem install yourgem

easy as that!


ps. remember to put the gems you're requiring in the Gemfile

pps. you also have a Rakefile with bundler setup with a task!

rake yourgem:mytask

"hi! I'm a simple rake task."

enjoy!
