So since ruby_parser is broken and appears to be rather dead, perhaps you should add sexp_processor as a dependency?

Lars Immisch

On snow leopard, installing the transitive dependencies explicitly alone wasn't enough. I also had to do a:
sudo gem update --system

Still having errors. 10.8.1 :(

$ sudo gem install sexp_processor
Successfully installed sexp_processor-4.0.1
$ sudo gem update --system
Successfully installed rubygems-update-1.8.24
$ sudo gem install xiki

I think that error only had to do with generating the docs for a gem. Shouldn't be an issue.
