Creating binary gems, from source gems

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Patrick Hurley, Mar 4, 2007.

  1. So here is my question:

    Is there an easy (read automated) way to take a gem (that requires a
    binary compilation) from a properly configured development/build
    machine and create a binary gem?

    I have production servers that will not include a C/C++ compiler or
    other development tools -- I would like to use gems for my packaging
    and deployment. I can of course do this by hand, but it seems like a
    common enough task (or will be as ruby pushes more and more into the
    mainstream), that others may have already encountered (and solved)
    this problem.

    If not would this feature be a welcome patch to gem? (or is it already
    there and I did not see it)
    Thanks
    pth
