Gem

RubyGems is the Ruby standard for publishing and managing third party libraries.

For user documentation, see:

For gem developer documentation see:

Further RubyGems documentation can be found at:

RubyGems Plugins

As of RubyGems 1.3.2, RubyGems will load plugins installed in gems or $LOAD_PATH. Plugins must be named ‘rubygems_plugin’ (.rb, .so, etc) and placed at the root of your gem’s require_path. Plugins are discovered via ::find_files then loaded. Take care when implementing a plugin as your plugin file may be loaded multiple times if multiple versions of your gem are installed.

For an example plugin, see the graph gem which adds a `gem graph` command.

RubyGems Defaults, Packaging

RubyGems defaults are stored in rubygems/defaults.rb. If you’re packaging RubyGems or implementing Ruby you can change RubyGems’ defaults.

For RubyGems packagers, provide lib/rubygems/operating_system.rb and override any defaults from lib/rubygems/defaults.rb.

For Ruby implementers, provide lib/rubygems/defaults/#{RUBY_ENGINE}.rb and override any defaults from lib/rubygems/defaults.rb.

If you need RubyGems to perform extra work on install or uninstall, your defaults override file can set pre and post install and uninstall hooks. See ::pre_install, ::pre_uninstall, ::post_install, ::post_uninstall.

Bugs

You can submit bugs to the RubyGems bug tracker on GitHub

  raise ArgumentError, "you must supply exec_name" unless exec_name

  requirements = Gem::Requirement.default if
    requirements.empty?

  specs = Gem::Dependency.new(name, requirements).matching_specs(true)

  raise Gem::GemNotFoundException,
        "can't find gem #{name} (#{requirements})" if specs.empty?
