README.md

rbenv-gem-rehash

Never run rbenv rehash again. This rbenv plugin automatically runs rbenv rehash every time you install or uninstall a gem.

Installation

Make sure you have rbenv 0.4.0 or later, then run:

git clone https://github.com/sstephenson/rbenv-gem-rehash.git ~/.rbenv/plugins/rbenv-gem-rehash

Usage

  1. gem install a gem that provides executables.
  2. Marvel at how you no longer need to type rbenv rehash.

How It Works

rbenv-gem-rehash consists of two parts: a RubyGems plugin and an rbenv plugin.

The RubyGems plugin hooks into the gem install and gem uninstall commands to run rbenv rehash afterwards, ensuring newly installed gem executables are visible to rbenv.

The rbenv plugin is responsible for making the RubyGems plugin visible to RubyGems. It hooks into the rbenv exec command that rbenv's shims use to invoke Ruby programs and configures the environment so that RubyGems can discover the plugin.
