Gemspec created when installing looksee 1.0.3:
The YAML objects present in the conditional block from line 21 to 37 are not valid.
This causes any call to the 'gem' command to throw the following error:
Invalid gemspec in [/PATH/TO/GEMS/ruby-1.8.7-p302/specifications/looksee-1.0.3.gemspec]: Illformed requirement ["#<YAML::Syck::DefaultKey:0x7fb59006c528> 0.3.0"]

ruby: 1.8.7-p302
rubygems: 1.5.3


This is a rubygems bug:

Please upgrade Rubygems and reinstall.

Sorry, about that.


The link to Rubygems blog is incorrect, it should be


And if you're uhappy with latest rubygems (e.g. it doesn't work with my rails 2.2 app), you can rollback to earlier rubygems version after installing looksee under latest rubygems - it will still work.


I still had the same problem after using rubygems 1.8.11, but once I added this to my Gemfile and started a new gemset the error went away.

gem 'looksee', :git => ""
