Is there any hazard in trying to install Ruby 2.3, as in all of it, on
a 64 bit Win7 machine?
Background: I like my development systems to be network independent.
I install Perl/Rakudo - I install the majority of its modules.
For Debian, I have more than half the archives loaded.
Thousands of Python modules loaded.
I am in the process of starting a project where Ruby seems quicker and
more efficient at least for major parts than my normal Perl. I want to
be able to work unabated if I need to travel, or if the Comcast ISP goes
It is trivial to parse the list of modules into an install script.
The problem is that it seems there is alot of garbage and reptition.
On my Debian system I simply mirrored the archive, but with over a
half-million (before the mirror script broke) I dont want to load down
the new system with 90% dross.
I am not too familiar with the Ruby versioning system, so i do wonder
about conflicts between differing modules if installed en masse.
Is there a winnowing process or scripts available? I see that there is a
site for listing the popularity of gems, but I see no way to simply
download a list of the most ‘popular’ gems that have been downloaded at
least 10,000 times or more.
