I’ve uploaded a snapshot build of David C.'s pkg installer here:
It installs under /Library/Frameworks/JRuby.framework and modifies
your .profile to add JRuby’s bin location to PATH. If I remember
right, he also updated it to share a gem home between installed
versions, so you could reinstall a new version and the gems would
still be in place.
If anyone’s adventurous, I’d like to have others place with this. On
OS X we probably would typically recommend either using rvm or simply
unpacking a JRuby dist, but there are folks who really want a pkg
install. For them, this may be enough.
The installer’s repository is here:
http://github.com/calavera/jruby-mac-installer. The process is simple;
check it out, and run setup.rb <jruby version, like
1.5.0.dev>. It will put a .dmg/.pkg in the JRuby source dir’s dist
There’s a few todo’s, from David’s README and a couple of my own:
- Background image for the .dmg/installer
- Complete empty step windows
- Create a rich text version for LICENSE.jruby and README.jruby
- Uninstall support (something under /Library/Receipts? Docs on how to
do this are really hard to find)
Anyone that can help with those, have at it. It looks like we’ll have
a pkg installer for 1.5!
