Why don't you turn this into a gem?

So it's not such a pain to update. Is there any reason it can't be a
gem?

Hey Travis,

We're looking into a good way to package the notifier as a gem,
particularly so that it will be easy to use outside of Rails apps.
However, if we use a gem and not a plugin, rake tasks and recipes
aren't automatically detected. Right now we're working out which
solution for that problem we like the best. Feel free to let us know
if you have suggestions.

Thanks,
-Joe

Hey Travis,

We took the liberty of doing it ourselves.
Gem - http://github.com/toolmantim/toadhopper
Middleware - http://github.com/atmos/rack_hoptoad

Joe,

What in the API keeps telling me that I'm using an older version of
the notifier even though I'm conforming to the xsd and the
specification on the hoptoad tender?

These do not have the rake tasks present in the notifier but we've
found it pretty easy to add that support in our applications where it
made sense.

Any chance you guys could re-visit this? It seems like the gem-
transformation has been under consideration for quite some time now...

As I just mentioned in #thoughtbot, rake tasks and recipes are really
not that hard to get working for gems... and they certainly haven't
stopped other rails ex-plugins from becoming gems (cucumber, thinking-
sphinx, etc.).

http://freelancing-god.github.com/ts/en/installing_thinking_sphinx.html
http://freelancing-god.github.com/ts/en/deployment.html

If you guys don't want to do it... do you mind if I release
hoptoad_notifier to gemcutter?

This is /especially/ useful for the future too: Rails 3.0 + gem
bundler seems to be the way forward...

Thanks!

Best,
Aaron

Good news. Is that being pushed to gemcutter yet?

Hey Travis,

It's already live on gemcutter: http://gemcutter.org/gems/hoptoad_notifier

I can't seem to get this gem version to work. I've installed the gem, added config.gem 'hoptoad_notifier', ran the generate hoptoad script and still doesn't want to work. It does work if I run rake hoptoad:test, but not from an actual exception in a controller.

Any ideas or tricks I can try to get it to work?

Disregard the last message. I launched a new server with the latest and greatest of everything (rails/passenger) and it magically started working.

Good job! gem version is much better.
