I have been porting my builds from NAnt to Rake as their complexity has become unmanageable. I couldn’t recall the way I installed Ruby (and associated gems) on my Win 2K3 server and I came across a few issues that I had to resolve to get up and running. Here are some things that helped me.
Running Ruby 1.8.7 required me to follow the steps here . This straightened out an error I was getting from Windows about iconv.dll.
There are a number of good rake (rakefile.rb) samples out there people have been kind enough to share. Here are the ones that were valuable in helping me:
- Jon Fuller : He has a link to his googlecode repo of this file and accompanying utilities
- Peter Mounce : He has a set of useful tasks for his rake dotnet project here which are definitely worth look at
