This is the first release of Rant.
From the documentation:
Rant is a flexible build tool written entirely in Ruby, similar to Rake.
The equivalent to a Makefile for make is the Rantfile. An Rantfile is actually a valid Ruby script that is read by the rant command.
Rant currently features:
applications and libraries.
checking (but not like autoconf!) which saves data in a yaml file.
so you don’t depend on an rant installation anymore.
As programmers usually want to see code, here is a short and very basic example of rant usage:
A file called Rantfile contains the code:
file "backup/data" => "data" do |t| sys.cp "data", t.name end
Running rant in the directory of this file:
% rant cp data backup/data
will ensure that the "data" file in the "backup" directory is up to date.
You can install Rant as a RubyGem: % gem install -r rant
or download the package from RubyForge(rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=615) and install with setup.rb: % ruby setup.rb
