JFrog Introduces Artifactory Support for Rubygems

Date 2013/8/23 9:16:13 | Topic: Product News

JFrog has announced today Artifactory, its binary repository management solution, now supports RubyGems programming language packages. This support helps developers properly store, manage and share gems using source control systems.

Developers simply shouldn't rely on RubyGems.org for all their needs, and they also need a place to host gems which are not available in RubyGems. Because gems are binaries, Artifactory serves as the perfect resource for hosting and management. Key benefits include:
* Proxy of Remote RubyGems: Host gems from RubyGems.org.
* Local Hosting: Artifactory acts as a local repository, able to host gems developers don't want to put on RubyGems.org, for any reason.
* Virtual Management: Aggregate any number of remote, local and virtual repositories under a single URL.
* Authentication and Authorization: Create schemes which allow controlling permissions on repositories per users and/or group, including integration with external authorization services.
* Searching and Browsing: Conduct efficient and speedy searches around hosted and remote gems.

"Delivering support for RubyGems to the JFrog community is just one of many steps we have taken to improve software development for the entire community. We're happy to give the millions of Artifactory users additional support for RubyGems and also give niche Ruby developers a repository more suited to their programming needs," said Ron Mamo, Senior Developer at JFrog. "There's something the Ruby community can borrow from the 'dark Java Enterprise' side -- the proper binary repository. And we have one that fits that need perfectly."

Artifactory is a repository manager for downloadable software artifacts; enables super-fast searches; speedier view and faster workflow management of build artifacts; advanced REST API and pluggability; enhanced integration with ecosystem tools for better release management; and a state-of-the-art user experience designed to make it easy for developers to create, share and manage content, and effectively collaborate within their ecosystem. Artifactory offers integration with many widely used development and Continuous Integration tools including Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, Gradle, Maven, Ivy, NuGet and more.
