Using Gems and Nu for Package Management July, 2010
Dru Sellers, Chris Patterson et al have been talking about .NET package management for a while and now have a release of Nu, a tool that brings Ruby Gems to .NET via rubygems.org. You can read more about it here, here and here.
This is how simple it is:
- Install Ruby or IronRuby,
- Type (i)gem install nu at a command line:
- Type nu install [InsertDependencyHere]:
This automatically downloads and places the dependencies in a folder called lib (Which can be overridden):
You can even create gems on rubygems.org for your projects or those of others (If they haven't already created one). Nifty!
