Automated Gem installation, activation, and much more!


GemInstaller provides automated installation, loading and activation
of RubyGems.  It uses a simple YAML config file to:

* Automatically install the correct versions of all required gems
wherever your app runs.
* Automatically ensure installed gems and versions are consistent
across multiple applications, machines, platforms, and environments
* Automatically activate correct versions of gems on the ruby load
path when your app runs ('require_gem'/'gem')
* Automatically reinstall missing dependency gems (built in to RubyGems
> 1.0)
* Automatically detect correct platform to install for multi-platform
gems (built in to RubyGems > 1.0)
* Print YAML for "rogue gems" which are not specified in the current
config, to easily bootstrap your config file, or find gems that were
manually installed without GemInstaller.
* Allow for common configs to be reused across projects or
environments by supporting multiple config files, including common
config file snippets, and defaults with overrides.
* Allow for dynamic selection of gems, versions, and platforms to be
used based on environment vars or any other logic.
* Avoid the "works on demo, breaks on production" syndrome
* Solve world hunger, prevent the global energy crisis, and wash your

=== Quick Start:



* [sudo] gem install geminstaller
