One of the hosts of the Ruby Rogues podcast recently recommended taking time
each week to write down three things you learned. I’m going to try this for
awhile and see if its helpful.
Nuget .nuspec files add Referenced DLLs to the bin/ During Build
If your project depends on a local dll, one that is not already available via
nuget, you can add it to the <references> section of the .nuspec. When your
library is referenced in Visual Studio, that DLL will come along for the ride
even though theres no direct reference in Visual Studio.
Compiling Ruby on Cygwin
Make sure you have all the build tools and libraries then use the instructions
from the ruby-build project.
Some of those may not actually be required but you should have them anyway :)
