Creating custom lib/tasks folder for rake files?


#1

How can I setup my own lib/tasks folder (similar to rails) so that all
tasks in this folder are available when running rake?

Everything I’ve tried so far has been unsuccessful. I get errors even
when trying to require a single .rake file from my main Rakefile:

require ‘sitemap.rake’

rake aborted!
no such file to load – sitemap.rake

Any suggestions?

Add your rake tasks to lib/tasks and they should automatically be
picked up when you are in the rails root at the command line.

Just do rake -T to see all your rake tasks.

Any suggestions?

Something like this at the top of your Rakefile, perhaps?

Dir["#{File.dirname(FILE)}/lib/tasks/*.rake"].sort.each { |ext| load
ext }

rake --help is pretty informative :slight_smile:

The output includes:

-g, --system                     Using system wide (global)

rakefiles (usually ‘~/.rake/*.rake’).

:: as well as some other interesting possibilities.

HTH!
