PackR gem now available

Update: the gem seems to be up on RubyForge now, so just gem install packr and you’re all set.

At the request of Aman Gupta (again!) PackR is now available as a gem. I’ve not got myself all set up on RubyForge yet, but in the meantime you can download the gem from my subversion repository. Just save that to disk, then:

gem install packr-1.0.0.gem

It’s nice having it available outside Rails – I’m using it myself for the build process in a couple of JavaScript projects I’m working on.

If you’ve enjoyed this article, you might enjoy my recently published book JavaScript Testing Recipes. It’s full of simple techniques for writing modular, maintainable JavaScript apps in the browser and on the server.
