Once upon a time I built gems for my libraries, but then rubygems site migrated like three times, and I really didn't feel like keeping track with all that, so I stopped doing anything.
Now I pushed magic-xml gem to relevant gem repositories (it has a dash like github repository name).
Apparently bkkbrad made magic_xml (with underscore) gem based on earlier version as well. Which brings me to:
Public service announcementEveryone, it's time to talk serious business. Ruby community must decide if it wants dashes or underscores in gem name, and it must decide it now.
- 15578 gems have underscores
- 17127 gems have dashes
- 1465 mix both in their name!!!
I'll be using dashes, since that's what github seems to be promoting, and I tend to put my software on github these days.
Other goodiesA lot of my small utilities depend on magic/xml, so this will allow me to publish them without having to bundle magic/xml library (even it's just one file, very old school).
For now I just pushed lastfm_status program - which does precisely what its name implies - to unix-utilities repository, but I'm sure there will be more, especially once I figure out which of my programs break half of Internet's Terms of Service enough to get banned, and which only a little ;-p
