Goals

Now add a Rakefile 01

This lab assumes you have installed rake. Please do that before continuing. Check for your specific Operating System. Otherwise execute:

Execute:

gem install rake 

Let’s add a Rakefile to our repository. The following one will do nicely.

File: Rakefile

#!/usr/bin/ruby -wKU

task :default => :run

task :run do
  require './lib/hello'
end

Add and commit the change.

Execute:

git add Rakefile
git commit -m "Added a Rakefile."

You should be able to use Rake to run your hello program now.

Execute:

rake

Output:

$ rake
Hello, World!
