Subject: [gentoo-dev] New ruby-single eclass
Date: Tue, 28 Apr 2015 18:24:14
1 Hi,
3 The current ruby eclasses work fairly well for ruby-only packages, but
4 support for packages where ruby is only part of the package are not well
5 served. As a start the ruby team proposes the following new eclass,
6 ruby-single.eclass. The purpose of this eclass is to provide support for
7 the case where a working ruby version needs to be accessed
8 via /usr/bin/ruby. Examples of such packages are net-libs/webkit-gtk and
9 sys-block/thin-provisioning-tools.
11 The eclass is loosely modeled after the python-single eclass-r1,
12 although not all the functionality available there can be or has been
13 provided for ruby at the moment. We've tried to keep variable and method
14 names compatible, though.
16 Also contained in this email is a new ruby-utils eclass which contains
17 code factored out of the current ruby-ng eclass, so that it can used by
18 both eclasses. ruby-utils.eclass is not meant to be used in ebuilds.
20 Full example code including an ebuild (app-admin/pwstore) is available
21 in the "ruby" repository.
23 Thanks,
25 Hans
