A distribution tool for binaries and libraries

Download this project as a .zip file Download this project as a tar.gz file

distribute is a gem for creating distributions of your code. If you have any statically released binaries or files then this will help you. Lots of people used Github Downloads before, but now can't. With distribute this is made much easier.

Requires git, at the moment.

Using Distribute

Either use in a rake task:

files = [
  'bin/whatever',
  'dist/thing.js',
  'dist/thing.min.js'
]

version = File.read("VERSION")

desc "Releasing the new binary"
task :release do
  Release.new(files, version).distribute!
end

desc "Releasing the latest binary"
task :latest do
  Latest.new(files).distribute!
end

Or the binary provided by us:

distribute --version=1.0.0 ember.js ember.min.js [filename...]

For more information, check the wiki
