Webby, Gems and Paths

I am running an Ubuntu box, and it seems that whenever I “gem install”
something
with an executable (eg. /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/webby-0.7.2/bin/webby)

  • I have to
    make a link to it in /usr/local and set the +x flag before it works.
    With Webby, linking
    still doesn’t work because it tries to load libraries with relative
    paths:

/usr/local/bin/webby:4:in `require’: no such file to load –
/usr/local/lib/webby (LoadError)

…so I have to cd to /var/lib/gems…etc. to run it.

Is there something wrong with my gems setup? Also, once I had build my
Webby site,
I had to put “require ‘rubygems’” in tasks/setup.rb before anything
would work.

After that Webby seems to work very well, except for one more thing
that I cannot
resolve. When I try to create a new page:

[email protected]:/media/Storage/linux/qbe$ rake create:page about
–trace
(in /media/Storage/linux/qbe)
** Invoke create:page (first_time)
** Execute create:page
rake aborted!
undefined method top_level_tasks' for #<Rake::Application:0xb7bc7354> /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/webby-0.7.2/lib/webby/webby_task.rb:94:indefine_create_tasks’

/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:1924:in each' /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:1924:inrun’
/usr/bin/rake:4

Any help?

On the webby create:page problem I was having, I can get a page
to be created if I change “top_level_tasks” to “collect_tasks”:

/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/webby-0.7.2/lib/webby/webby_task.rb:

  desc "create a new #{name}"
  task name do |t|
    raise "Usage:  rake #{t.name} path" unless ARGV.length == 2

    #page = t.application.top_level_tasks.pop
    page = t.application.collect_tasks.pop

    name = ::Webby::File.basename(page)
    ext  = ::Webby::File.extname(page)
    dir  = ::Webby::File.dirname(page)

That works, but I do get a (superfluous?) error from Rake:
Don’t know how to build task ‘about’

What version of “gem” do you have installed?

$ gem --version

Okay, that was my bad. It will be fixed in the next release.

/usr/bin/rake:4

What version of rake do you have installed? You should be running the
latest (version 0.8.1 I believe).

$ sudo gem update rake

Ok, everything seems to be working right now, although I had to
reinstall the Webby and BlueCloth gems (local install: “gem install
webby bluecloth”). I added the RUBYOPT environment variable and all
seems well. Webby also looks very nice so far, although I obviously
will need to learn Latin :wink:

Thanks!

0.9, I have just updated to 1.01, so perhaps that will work better.

Maybe not. The rubygems website says I should set my RUBYOPT
environment variable, so that would sort this problem out.

undefined method top_level_tasks' for #<Rake::Application:0xb7bc7354> /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:1924:ineach’
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:1924:in `run’
/usr/bin/rake:4

Ah, I have 0.7.1. Updating now…

Thanks for all your help!
