Pik 0.1.0 Released

pik version 0.1.0 has been released!

Pik is a tool to switch between multiple versions of ruby on Windows.

Or to put it another way

doskey rvm=pik $* # (sort of)

You have to tell it where your different ruby versions live using
‘pik add’. Then you can change to one by using ‘pik switch’.

It also has a “sort of” multiruby functionality in ‘pik run’.

Changes:

0.1.0 / 2009-09-24

  • removed jruby support for the time being (lack of win32ole is a
    problem)
  • added more helpful messages to pik add
  • renamed gemdup to gemsync. fixed the code up a bit
  • added default and implode commands, shortcuts for switch, more
    specs, lots of refactors
  • removed add_gem_home command. GEM_HOME can be configured with pik
    config
  • change remove ‘force’ to ‘quiet’
  • added simpler switch semantics (pik 191 p243 instead of pik switch 191 p243)
  • added gemdup command
  • option parsing is now done with optparse and not a regex
  • rewrote pik to use classes for each command in the hopes that my
    code would be easier to read
  • Added post install instructions - issue 5. Switched to Hoe.spec for
    Hoe compatibility. added Hoe-git plugin.
  • added verbose output and current version specifier to ‘list’
  • added ‘use’ as an alias for ‘switch’
  • cleaner method of remvoving .pik/pik batch file, fixed some long lines

There is the Jacob library for Java, which bridges Java to COM/OLE.
We’ve long wanted someone to wire up win32ole to it for JRuby, but
nobody’s gotten around to it :frowning:

Gordon is working on making Pik an standalone executable, so the issue
about the runtime environment is going to go away. Kind of similar
approach to rvm, but in Ruby for Windows.
