Quick guide to Merb dependency resolution

November 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Playing with Merb again on an old box with a positively geriatric install of Ruby, I discovered after some pain that github needs Ruby gems to be at least version 1.2. I subsequently discovered that Ruby also needs to be at 1.8.6 or higher (/cry) – there’s no clean upgrade path for Ruby yet for Windows which means a fresh install.

Add github as a source if you don’t already have it (you can check quickly with “gem sources”)

gem sources –add

You will probably have issues with previously installed versions of addressable in which case you’ll need to get the latest version:

gem install addressable

Then all you (probably) have to do is install Merb – there may be issues though which I didn’t experience.

gem install –remote merb
