RubyGems is a package management framework for Ruby.

A RubyGem is a software package, commonly called a "gem". Gems contain a packaged Ruby application or library. The RubyGems software itself allows you to easily download, install, and manipulate gems on your system.

Think gem as apt-get for Debian/Ubuntu, pacman for Arch Linux and yum for Fedora.


Ruby 1.9 comes with RubyGems by default. No need to install by hand.

To upgrade to latest RubyGems, run (root is NOT required if you install Ruby via rbenv or RVM)

gem update --system

DevKit (Windows ONLY)

The RubyInstaller Development Kit is a toolkit that makes it easy to build and use native C/C++ extensions such as RDiscount and RedCloth for Ruby on Windows. 

Simply download, double-click, choose an installation directory, run the Ruby install helper script and you’re ready to start using native Ruby extensions. For installation details check out the Development Kit wiki page.
