A Sneak Preview of our Ruby/Rake support

April 6, 2010

Here at Mike HQ we are getting close to releasing support for the extremely popular Rake Ruby language-based build tool.

A key element of our mission at Mike is to extend the capabilities of our platform beyond those required by the Java development world, and this will be the first major step in that direction.

At the moment we are testing the feature using a range of open source Ruby-based projects. Here are a couple of screen-shots of the configuration and console output from our build of Haml, a popular templating engine for Rails apps:

One nifty feature we are adding is the ability to specify the required Gems for your Rake build, which is intended to provide our users with full control of dependencies, and to avoid what we believe to be one of the most common reasons for build failures using Rake.

Stay tuned for further details…
