Project comparisons allow you to view any selection of projects side by side just like they're shown on regular categories or in search results. You can try out an example or start yourself by adding a library to the comparison via the input below. You can also easily share your current comparison with others by sending the URL of the current page.
A package (also known as a library) contains a set of functionality that can be invoked by a Ruby program, such as reading and parsing an XML file. We call these packages 'gems' and RubyGems is a tool to install, create, manage and load these packages in your Ruby environment. RubyGems is also a client for RubyGems.org, a public repository of Gems that allows you to publish a Gem that can be shared and used by other developers. See our guide on publishing a Gem at guides.rubygems.org
