Dojo Packager

Get Version




dojo-pkg is a Ruby gem for distributing the Dojo source code and provides utilities for working with Dojo in your Rails application.


sudo gem install dojo-pkg

The basics

dojo-pkg provides a simple way to distribute the Dojo JavaScript Toolkit via a Ruby gem.
Currently dojo-pkg supports a single command dojofy that can be used to add Dojo to your Ruby on Rails application.

Demonstration of usage

Once you install dojo-pkg, it’s easy to start using Dojo within your rails application by doing the following:

cd my_awesome_rails_app

This will add a public/javascripts/dojo directory to your Ruby on Rails application. Inside this directory, you will find the dojo source code. If the dojo installation was successful, then you will see a nice friendly message:

You have just dojofied your app!

If you have problems during this step, or the error messages aren’t clear enough to help you figure out what may be wrong, then post a message to the dojo-pkg Google Group and somebody is sure to help you on your way to Dojo bliss.


How to submit patches

Read the 8 steps for fixing other people’s code and for section 8b: Submit patch to Google Groups, use the Google Group above.

The trunk repository is svn:// for anonymous access.


You can fetch the source from either:

Build and test instructions

cd dojo-pkg
rake test
rake install_gem
