Installing Buildr

The easiest way to install Buildr is using the fabulous RubyGems package manager. Of course, you will need either Ruby or JRuby, and we recommend upgrading to the most recent version of RubyGems. If this sounds foreign to you, don’t worry. We’ll show you how to install Buildr on Linux, OS X, Windows and JRuby in the Getting Started guide, we even provide automated installation scripts.

The official Apache distribution consists of the digitally signed binaries (gems) and source packages available below. To install these binaries, you must first download them to disk and then install them using the gem install command (or rake install for a source distribution).

In addition, contributors to this project maintain a separate distribution over on RubyForge. Using this distribution, you’re able to install Buildr directly from the remote gem repository and to automatically upgrade when a new release comes out. The RubyForge distribution is not an official Apache distribution.

The source code is included in both source and binary distribution, the Gem distribution expands the source code into your local Gem repository. That’s in addition to getting the source code directly from SVN or GitHub. Learn more about working with source code and living on the edge.

When downloading from files please check the md5sum and verify the OpenPGP compatible signature from the main Apache site. This KEYS file contains the public keys used for signing releases. It is recommended that (when possible) a web of trust is used to confirm the identity of these keys. For more information, please see the Apache Release FAQ.
