Iron-term-ansicolor 0.0.2 Released

Tonight, I released an update to iron-term-ansicolor, a library for
IronRuby
that provides console colors for apps like RSpec and Cucumber (Cucumber
already makes use of this, and I bet it would not be too much trouble to
add
to RSpec).

http://rubygems.org/gems/iron-term-ansicolor

http://rubygems.org/gems/iron-term-ansicolorigem install
iron-term-ansicolor

The source is available on github:

Big thanks to Danny Coates for devising a much better way to parse the
ANSI
control codes!

Very cool!

So if a user runs Cucumber on IronRuby, does Cucumber give the right
error message about having to install iron-term-ansicolor? Cucumber used
to say that you had to install win32console. Just checking that
iron-term-ansicolor will be easily discoverable.

Yes, Aslak accepted a patch to Cucumber from me many months ago when I
released 0.0.1.

I don’t see why not. That said, there has been no testing specifically
to
verify that.

If you clone the git repo, install rake and rspec, and run rake, the
default
rake task is to run the rspec specifications.

Can this gem be used with IronRuby rc 1.

I released iron-term-ansicolor 0.0.3 last night after testing the gem
install locally first.

Please let me know if you still have trouble installing it from
Rubygems.org.

Also, I’ve submitted a patch to RSpec to use iron-term-ansicolor if it
can,
the same way it tries to use win32console under MRI.

I think I may have pushed a corrupted gem :-/ Sorry about that folks.
Trying
to get the bits in place to yank it from gemcutter and replace it with a
known good version of the gem.


Will G.
http://hotgazpacho.org/

This brings a question to mind - what should the general approach be for
porting existing gems to IronRuby? There could be two possible
approaches:

  1.   Create a gem with the same name (“win32console” in this case), 
    

and specify platform==”ironruby”. That way, dependent gems do not need
to be updated, and users have to remember just one name. IronRuby will
use the version with platform==”ironruby”, and MRI will use the one with
platform==”mswin32”. So there should not be any clashes even if you use
MRI and IronRuby on the same machine.

  1.   Create a new gem like iron-term-ansicolor.
    

Any pro or cons to the two? What should the recommendation be in
general?

That all depends on how Gem checks the platform. If it uses the
RUBY_PLATFORM variable, then IronRuby needs to change what it reports
here.
Currently, it reports i386-mswin32.


Will G.
http://hotgazpacho.org/

I believe JRuby is doing the 1st one, which makes sense in my opinion.
If possible we should prefer platform == “ironruby”, (or .net, do we
need to differentiate .net and mono?), but accept others.

It does seem like there isn’t a way to distinguish between IronRuby and
MRI.

C:> ir.exe

require “rubygems”
=> true

Gem::Platform.local()
=> #<Gem::Platform:0x1409 @cpu=“x86”, @os=“mswin32”, @version=“60”>

JRuby otoh does seem to do something different

Cool beans!

I noticed in the latest push that a change was made to Ruby Gems itself:

http://github.com/ironruby/ironruby/commit/82cb04621b505dea5a010c70827addc2de6227ba#diff-0

Someone should contribute that change to the Ruby Gems project as well.


Will G.
http://hotgazpacho.org/

With my last checkin, RbConfig::CONFIG[“arch”] will be
“universal-.net2.0” for IronRuby. I created a gemspec as shown below.
Doing “gem build” on it will create a gem with filename of
Shri-1.2.3-universal-unknown.gem. Instead use “rbx –S gem build” and you
will get a file called Shri-1.2.3-universal-.net.gem.

spec = Gem::Specification.new do |s|
s.name = ‘Shri’
s.version = ‘1.2.3’
s.summary = “Shri summary”
s.platform = “universal-.net”
s.description = %{Shri description}
s.files = []
s.author = “Shri”
s.email = “[email protected]
s.homepage = “http://shri.org
end

I have updated with
http://ironruby.net/Documentation/Real_Ruby_Applications/RubyGems with
this info:
IronRuby-specific gems
Gems could specifically target IronRuby. They may contain Ruby code
which uses .NET APIs, or they may even include compiled .NET assemblies.
In such cases, the Gem specification should set platform
http://rubygems.org/read/chapter/20#platform to “universal-.net” (or
“universal-.net4.0” to run only on .NET 4), and build the gem using
IronRuby (“rbx -S gem build”).
Note that if you build the gem with MRI using “gem build”, MRI will not
be able to recognize the platform string, and will create a gem file
named something like foo-universal-unknown.gem (instead of the expected
foo-universal-.net.gem"). To avoid this, build the gem using IronRuby as
mentioned above.
Talking with Tomas, we will leave RUBY_PLATFORM set to “x86-mswin32” (on
Windows) since many apps check for “mswin32” in RUBY_PLATFORM to check
if they are running on Windows. We considered appending “.net” and
setting RUBY_PLATFORM to “.net-mswin32” or “x86-mswin32/.net” to
indicate that it was not MRI, but decided against it as you can always
check RUBY_ENGINE to detect if you are running on IronRuby.

That all depends on how Gem checks the platform. If it uses the
RUBY_PLATFORM variable, then IronRuby needs to change what it reports
here. Currently, it reports i386-mswin32.

If possible we should prefer platform == “ironruby”, (or .net, do we
need to differentiate .net and mono?), but accept others.

Subject: [Ironruby-core] IronRuby version of existing gems
This brings a question to mind - what should the general approach be
for porting existing gems to IronRuby? There could be two possible
approaches:

  1.   Create a gem with the same name (“win32console” in this case), 
    

and specify platform==”ironruby”. That way, dependent gems do not need
to be updated, and users have to remember just one name. IronRuby will
use the version with platform==”ironruby”, and MRI will use the one with
platform==”mswin32”. So there should not be any clashes even if you use
MRI and IronRuby on the same machine.

  1.   Create a new gem like iron-term-ansicolor.
    

Any pro or cons to the two? What should the recommendation be in
general?

I released iron-term-ansicolor 0.0.3 last night after testing the gem
install locally first.

Please let me know if you still have trouble installing it from
Rubygems.org.

Also, I’ve submitted a patch to RSpec to use iron-term-ansicolor if it
can, the same way it tries to use win32console under MRI.
