Vendorer

  • documented & cached dependencies
  • automatic updates
  • no unwanted/accidental updates

Install

Needs: Curl + Git + Ruby

then:

gem install vendorer

or standalone

curl https://rubinjam.herokuapp.com/pack/vendorer > vendorer && chmod +x vendorer
./vendorer -v

Usage

Add a Vendorfile (or Vendorfile.rb) to your project root:

file 'vendor/assets/javascripts/jquery.min.js', 'http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js'
folder 'vendor/plugins/parallel_tests', 'https://github.com/grosser/parallel_tests.git'

# Execute a block after updates
file 'vendor/assets/javascripts/jquery.js', 'http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js' do |path|
  puts "Do something useful with #{path}"
  rewrite(path) { |content| content.gsub(/\r\n/, \n).gsub /\t/, ' ' }
end

# Checkout a specific :ref/:tag/:branch
folder 'vendor/plugins/parallel_tests', 'https://github.com/grosser/parallel_tests.git', :tag => 'v0.6.10'

# DRY folders
folder 'vendor/assets/javascripts' do
  file 'jquery.js', 'http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js'
end

# Copy files & folders from repos (also works with private repos)
from 'https://github.com/grosser/parallel_tests.git' do |checkout_location|
  file 'Readme.md'
  file 'target-folder/file.rb', 'lib/parallel_tests.rb'
  folder 'spec'
  folder 'renamed-folder', 'spec'
end
  • Create a new Vendorfile: vendorer init
  • Execute all installations: vendorer
  • Update all dependencies: vendorer update
  • Update a single dependency: vendorer update vendor/assets/javascripts/jquery.min.js
  • Update everything in a specific folder: vendorer update vendor/assets/javascripts

Alternatives

  • Vendorificator more features/complexity, but similar interface/concept

TODO

  • nice error message when no Vendorfile was found
