Our company uses RubyGems as the de-facto packaging solution for our Ruby on Rails systems. All of the teams that use Ruby use our internal RubyGems artifactory. It's primarily used to resolve the issue of having to package common Ruby libraries together, as well as to publish our own internal gems and reusable libraries.
  • Seemless packaging
  • Well documented
  • Verbose error logs
  • Active community support
  • Quick security fixes/releases
  • Lack of solid Windows support.
  • Not great performance if lots of people release at the same time.
RubyGems is a great packaging library primarily because of its verbose logging information and easy to navigate system architecture. We've dealt with artifactory systems in the past for Java and JavaScript, and RubyGems just makes it a lot easier to handle the packaging and deployment of our reusable libraries. We've noticed in the past that there are times where (if all 200+ teams) are releasing at a similar time that publishing the gems can lag, but that's fairly rare.
RubyGems has strong community support and finding issues to errors is as simple as searching for the error message you're receiving (but usually the error is clear enough without having to bother with that). Honestly, the framework is simple enough that support isn't needed much, but it has been helpful to us in the past when we have needed it.
