what's the nearest ruby equivalent to waf?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Martin DeMello, Feb 14, 2010.

  1. http://stefano.italians.nl/archives/66 is a pretty nice example of
    using waf, a python build tool, instead of autoconf and make, to build
    a c++ project. Is there a ruby build tool that can be used for
    something similar? (This is not a case of NIH; looking at the waf
    script in that example, I can imagine it being a lot nicer in ruby)
