Oniguruma and Ultraviolet on Windows 7

Hi I have been tying to install the followings gems in order to add
code syntax highlighting to my application:

-Oniguruma
-Ultraviolet
-Harsh

Unfortunately I have been running into the the following errors when
running “gem install oniguruma ultraviolet”

Building native extensions. This could take a while…

I’m using windows 7 with
ruby 1.9.1p378 (2010-01-10 revision 26273) [i386-mingw32]

actionmailer (2.3.5)
actionpack (2.3.5)
activerecord (2.3.5)
activeresource (2.3.5)
activesupport (2.3.5)
mysql (2.8.1)
rack (1.0.1)
rails (2.3.5)
rake (0.8.7)

Any help that anyone can give me to resolve this issue is highly
appreciated.

Cheers!

Do you have the correct compiler toolchain installed (from the log
looks like minggw32) ?
It also looks like someone forked ultraviolet and that the fork
( http://github.com/spox/ultraviolet ) is ruby 1.9 compatible which
rather implies that the original isn’t. It doesn’t look like the fork
has any native code dependencies (onigurama is a regular express
library which has become the standard ruby one in ruby 1.9)

Hi Frederick,

I actually was able to install both ultraviolet and oniguruma with the
following commands :
gem install oniguruma --platform=mingw32
gem install ultraviolet --platform=mingw32

So know when I run gem list --local I see

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

actionmailer (2.3.5)
actionpack (2.3.5)
activerecord (2.3.5)
activeresource (2.3.5)
activesupport (2.3.5)
git (1.2.5)
hpricot (0.8.2)
mysql (2.8.1)
oniguruma (1.1.0)
plist (3.1.0)
rack (1.0.1)
rails (2.3.5)
rake (0.8.7)
textpow (0.10.1)
ultraviolet (0.10.2)

But know I’m having a different problem running script/plugin install
git://github.com/michaeledgar/harsh.git I always get Plugin not found:
[“git://github.com/michaeledgar/harsh.git”]

I get the same error with all the plugins I try to install, I also
tried replacing git with http:// and adding a trailing slash at the
end but with the same result.

I also tried downloading the plugin manually and copying it to the
vendor folder, but is not making the correct replacement and when I
try to run the rake tasks from the plugin I get the following error
output :

rake harsh:theme:list

Any help getting this solved is highly appreciated

Hi amacgregor,

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could you explain to me, perhaps with some detail, how you got the gem
install oniguruma --platform–mingw32 to work?

I installed the devkit for Ruby 19 on Windows. I’ve used it to
successfully to get the RMagick gem working on 1.9 so it seems
perfectly capable of doing it.

I’m not sure what other steps I need to take for the oniguruma gem.

I typed the command directly at the command prompt but got errors.

I also typed the command in from the msys console. It gave me errors
too.

Do I need to download oniguruma in C or something first?

Sorry, I have very little experience with this.
