SQlite3-Ruby Windows Builds
So, I’ve got a new sqlite3-ruby release pending (just a minor bug fix, is all), but I’ve learned my lesson about releasing a new version without a windows version pre-built.
The problem is, I’m not a Windows guy. My build environment for Windows is cobbled together and painful to use, when it works at all. I’ve decided that I won’t put myself through that pain anymore.
If you are a developer on Windows, and you have a sqlite3 build environment, and would be willing to compile the sqlite3-ruby extension for me, please do the following:
- Add a comment to this post, indicating your name, and what platform you would be willing to build for (cygwin, native windows, whatever. I don’t even know the right names.)
- Reload the page, and make sure no one commented before you, claiming those platforms.
- Grab the latest version of sqlite3-ruby here: http://github.com/jamis/sqlite3-ruby/tree/master.
- Build the extension, and email it to me at jamis at 37signals dot com.
Once I have a build of sqlite3-ruby for windows, I’ll release the new gem. (It amazes me how painful Windows makes this process. Mac OS X, Linux, BSD, etc. —you just gem install and build the source. No such luck in the Windows realm, apparently.)
