Adding Ruby Extensions

The instructions I use to add the extensions and libraries I favor (gems) using the RubyGems utility. (For instructions on installing the RubyGems utility, go here.)

Here are the gems I have installed. Use this script to replicate the installed extensions in future versions:

gem install rake     # Build language
gem install rspec    # Behavior-Driven testing language
gem install fxruby   # GUI libarary (but keep an eye on WxRuby, see Which GUI?)
gem install rails --include-dependencies # Web app language

 To keep the libraries current, periodically issue this command:

gem update
