newgem - New Gem Generator for RubyGems

branch: master
README.txt
= New Gem Generator

* http://newgem.rubyforge.org

== DESCRIPTION:

Quickly bundle any Ruby libraries into a RubyGem and share it with the world, your colleagues, or perhaps just with yourself amongst your projects.

RubyGems are centrally stored, versioned, and support dependencies between other gems, so they are the ultimate way to bundle libraries, executables, associated tests, examples, and more.

Within this gem, you get one thing - <code>newgem</code> - an executable to create your own gems. Your new gems will include designated folders for Ruby code, test files, executables, and even a default website page for you to explain your project, and which instantly uploads to RubyForge website (which looks just like this one by default)
  
== BASIC USAGE:

Go to the folder where you want to create your new gem folder structure, and run the <code>newgem</code> command to generate your gem scaffolding.

<pre>$ cd ~/ruby_projects
$ newgem wizzo
creating: wizzo
creating: wizzo/CHANGELOG.txt
creating: wizzo/README.txt
creating: wizzo/lib
creating: wizzo/script
creating: wizzo/website
creating: wizzo/website/javascripts
creating: wizzo/website/stylesheets
creating: wizzo/lib/wizzo
creating: wizzo/lib/wizzo.rb
creating: wizzo/lib/wizzo/version.rb
creating: wizzo/bin
creating: wizzo/test
creating: wizzo/test/test_helper.rb
creating: wizzo/test/test_wizzo.rb
creating: wizzo/examples
creating: wizzo/setup.rb
creating: wizzo/Rakefile
creating: wizzo/Manifest.txt
creating: wizzo/History.txt
creating: wizzo/script/generate
creating: wizzo/script/txt2html
creating: wizzo/website/index.txt
creating: wizzo/website/template.html.erb
copying: wizzo/website/javascripts/rounded_corners_lite.inc.js
copying: wizzo/website/stylesheets/screen.css
NOW - update wizzo/Rakefile with gem description, etc
</pre>

As of 0.10.0 - you can generate test::unit or rspec test stubs via the -t, --test-with options

== SYNOPSIS:

Now modify the constants at the top of *config/hoe.rb*, with your name, email and the location where you'll host your website for the gem. The defaults are tied to RubyForge for uploading the gems and the website.

== REQUIREMENTS:

* hoe
* rubyforge

== INSTALL:

The <code>newgem</code> application is distributed itself as a RubyGem and is available immediately after installation.

<pre syntax="ruby">sudo gem install newgem</pre>

Alternately, download the gem and install manually.
