Hoe Loves RubyGems
A Hoe plugin with additional RubyGems tasks. Provides support for generating gemspec files and installing with a prefix.
# in your Rakefile .plugin :rubygems
Generating a Gemspec
$ rake gem:spec
This will write
projectname.gemspec into the root directory of your project.
Installing with a Prefix
Developing with prefixed forks of gems can be really hard, since, e.g., a GitHub gem that installs as
jbarnette-johnson via GitHub's source will install as
johnson from a local checkout. To install with a prefix, try:
$ rake gem:install[jbarnette]
For Johnson, this would locally install a gem called
gem:install without a prefix argument will do exactly the same thing as Hoe's built-in
$ gem install hoe-rubygems
