How to distribute my ruby script

Hi All,

I am new to Ruby. I have created a new script that requires couple of
gems to work. Now how do i make an executable of my script to make sure
that:
The script runs on a machine where no Ruby is installed and no gems are
there.

I would appreciate if someone could describe the flow as to how to
achieve this. I have looked over the internet and found ocra as one
option to create executable. But what about the gems? how would script
executable run?

If there is a clear web link that i can follow or an example in reply,
that would be great.

Thanks.

So have you actually tried Ocra? It’ll package the gems as well.
