A small DSL for the construction of quick automation tasks.

NOTE: This version is just a prototype. It will be completely re-written.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'assemblr'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install assemblr


Assemblr is separated into modules. The core module contains simple logging methods since they're needed by all other modules. It gets automatically imported when requiring any sub-modules.

Here are the currently existing modules (although none of them are close to finished):

  • assemblr/shell
  • assemblr/network
  • assemblr/remote

There are currently two styles available to call the methods defined in these modules:

require 'assemblr/shell'

# Style 1
Shell.exec 'my_command'

# Style 2
shell_exec 'my_command'

Both styles are automatically imported into the main scope when the file is required.


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to
