Had some minutes to spend today and thought it would be pretty neat to
YARV (as announced on
ArchLinux, so i went ahead and created a little PKGBUILD
one can find it at AUR (ruby-yarv-svn):
installation as usual (aurbuild, qpkg or makepkg yourself)
Not sure if this belongs to ruby-talk, but for all the ruby-addicted
out there this is pretty good news
after installation one can use it with ruby_yarv - there are issues with
rubygems as everybody might expect, so calm down a bit - your favorite
won’t run on it (yet).
And it’s also a little reminder for all the other maintainers out there,
some packages for YARV, people want to try it and there is no reason why
shouldn’t be able to do it
Not to mention that it would be pretty good advertisement for ruby to
something to show off, right?
