A very simple gem package generation tool built on
bundler. Pass it a
gem file, it spits out a tarball of the generated gem
environment. Perfect for "bundle once, upload everywhere"-style
Also comes with
spitball-server, a small sinatra app that you can run
on a dedicated build server. The
spitball command line client can then
pull packages down from said server.
Usage: spitball  GEMFILE ARCHIVE options: -h, --host HOST Get the tarball from a remote spitball server -p, --port PORT Specify the remote server port. Default 8080 --without a,b,c Excluded groups in the tarball. Does not apply to remote spitballs --version environment variables: SPITBALL_CACHE Specifies the cache dir. Defaults to /tmp/spitball-username
Lots of things are changing in bundler 1.0. We're stuck on 0.9.5 for now, but once we get to 1.0, this tool will probably work with lock files instead of gem files, for more predictable builds.
