gem 'rubocop-rake', require: false

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rubocop-rake


You need to tell RuboCop to load the Rake extension. There are three ways to do this:

RuboCop configuration file

Put this into your .rubocop.yml.

require: rubocop-rake

Command line

rubocop --require rubocop-rake

Rake task

require 'rubocop/rake_task' do |task|
  task.requires << 'rubocop-rake'
