-=== RVM for RedHat OpenShift
+{master:<img src="" alt="Build Status" /> stable:<img src="" alt="Build Status" />}[!/wayneeseguin/rvm/branch_summary]
-A customised version of RVM that uses the non-standard install locations and environment variables in use on the RedHat OpenShift service.
+= rvm
-To install:
- $ ssh <uuid>@<appname-namespace>
- $ curl -L | bash -s
-Because of the limitations in place on the OpenShift system, you cannot have RVM inserted as a bash function, so you'll need to run the following command any time you wish to use RVM through SSH access:
- $ source $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR/.rvm/scripts/rvm
+RVM is the Ruby enVironment Manager (rvm).
-== Using SSH with OpenShift
+It manages Ruby application environments and switching between them.
-To SSH into your OpenShift app box, find your SSH connection details using the rhc tools gem:
- $ rhc-user-info -l <email> -p <password>
+== Installation
-It should look something like the following:
+ curl -L | bash -s stable [--ruby] [--rails] [--trace]
-Then use this info to SSH into your box:
- $ ssh
- $ <password> type...type...type...
+stable :: Install stable RVM, good for servers.
+--ruby :: Additionally install latest ruby version (MRI).
+--rails :: Install gem rails into default gemset (also installs ruby if not selected).
+--trace :: Print trace of the installation, gist output when you have problems.
+More details here:
+== Usage
+ rvm [Flags] [Options] Action [Implementation[,Implementation[,...]]
+== Flags
+--default :: with 'rvm use X', sets the default ruby for new shells to X.
+--debug :: Toggle debug mode on for very verbose output.
+--trace :: Toggle trace mode on to see EVERYTHING rvm is doing.
+--force :: Force install, removes old install & source before install.
+--summary :: Used with rubydo to print out a summary of the commands run.
+--latest :: with gemset --dump skips version strings for latest gem.
+--gems :: with uninstall/remove removes gems with the interpreter.
+--docs :: with install, attempt to generate ri after installation.
+--reconfigure :: Force ./configure on install even if Makefile already exists.
+== Options
+-v|--version :: Emit rvm version loaded for current shell
+-l|--level :: patch level to use with rvm use / install
+ --bin :: path for binaries to be placed (~/.rvm/bin/)
+-S :: Specify a script file to attempt to load and run (rubydo)
+-e :: Execute code from the command line.
+--gems :: Used to set the 'gems_flag', use with 'remove' to remove gems
+--archive :: Used to set the 'archive_flag', use with 'remove' to remove archive
+--patch :: With MRI Rubies you may specify one or more full paths to patches
+ for multiple, specify comma separated:
+ --patch /.../.../a.patch[%prefix],/.../.../.../b.patch
+ 'prefix' is an optional argument, which will be bypassed
+ to the '-p' argument of the 'patch' command. It is separated
+ from patch file name with '%' symbol.
+-C|--configure :: custom configure options. If you need to pass several configure
+ options then append them comma separated:
+ -C --...,--...,--...
+--nice :: process niceness (for slow computers, default 0)
+--ree-options :: Options passed directly to ree's './installer' on the command line.
+--with-rubies :: Specifies a string for rvm to attempt to expand for set operations.
+== Action
+(Note that for most actions, 'rvm help action-name' may provide more information.)
+*usage* :: show this usage information
+version :: show the rvm version installed in rvm_path
+use :: setup current shell to use a specific ruby version
+reload :: reload rvm source itself (useful after changing rvm source)
+implode :: (seppuku) removes the rvm installation completely.
+ This means everything in $rvm_path (~/.rvm || /usr/local/rvm).
+ This does not touch your profiles. However, this means that you
+ must manually clean up your profiles and remove the lines which source RVM.
+get :: {head,stable} upgrades rvm to latest head or stable version.
+ Check 'rvm help get' for more details.
+ (If you experience bugs try this first with head version, then
+ ask for help in #rvm on and hang around)
+reset :: remove current and stored default & system settings.
+ (If you experience odd behavior try this second)
+info :: show the *current* environment information for current ruby
+current :: print the *current* ruby version and the name of any gemset being used.
+debug :: show info plus additional information for common issues
+install :: install one or many ruby versions
+ See also:
+uninstall :: uninstall one or many ruby versions, leaves their sources
+remove :: uninstall one or many ruby versions and remove their sources
+migrate :: Lets you migrate all gemsets from one ruby to another.
+upgrade :: Lets you upgrade from one version of a ruby to another, including
+ migrating your gemsets semi-automatically.
+wrapper :: generates a set of wrapper executables for a given ruby with the
+ specified ruby and gemset combination. Used under the hood for
+ passenger support and the like.
+cleanup :: Lets you remove stale source folders / archives and other miscellaneous
+ data associated with rvm.
+repair :: Lets you repair parts of your environment e.g. wrappers, env files and
+ and similar files (e.g. general maintenance).
+snapshot :: Lets your backup / restore an rvm installation in a lightweight manner.
+disk-usage :: Tells you how much disk space rvm install is using.
+tools :: Provides general information about the ruby environment,
+ primarily useful when scripting rvm.
+docs :: Tools to make installing ri and rdoc documentation easier.
+rvmrc :: Tools related to managing rvmrc trust and loading.
+do :: runs an arbitrary command against specified and/or all rubies
+tests :: runs 'rake test' across selected ruby versions
+specs :: runs 'rake spec' across selected ruby versions
+monitor :: Monitor cwd for testing, run `rake {spec,test}` on changes.
+gemset :: gemsets:
+rubygems :: Switches the installed version of rubygems for the current ruby.
+gemdir :: display the path to the current gem directory (GEM_HOME).
+srcdir :: display the path to rvm source directory (may be yanked)
+fetch :: Performs an archive / src fetch only of the selected ruby.
+list :: show currently installed rubies, interactive output.
+pkg :: Install a dependency package {readline,iconv,zlib,openssl}
+notes :: Display notes, with operating system specifics.
+export :: Temporarily set an environment variable in the current shell.
+unexport :: Undo changes made to the environment by 'rvm export'.
+requirements :: Shows additional OS specific dependencies/requirements for building various rubies.
+== Implementation
+*ruby* :: MRI/YARV Ruby (The Gold Standard) {1.8.6,1.8.7,1.9.1,1.9.2...}
+jruby :: JRuby, Ruby interpreter on the Java Virtual Machine.
+rbx :: Rubinius
+ree :: Ruby Enterprise Edition, MRI Ruby with several custom
+ patches for performance, stability, and memory.
+macruby :: MacRuby, insanely fast, can make real apps (Mac OS X Only).
+maglev :: GemStone Ruby, awesome persistent ruby object store.
+ironruby :: IronRuby, NOT supported yet. Looking for volunteers to help.
