There are a few prerequisites to use Raven, basically: Ruby, RubyGems and Rake. Once you have these, its very easy.
For Windows users, I'd really recommend the one-click installer. Everything you need is already in it.
%> gem install rake
Once your environment is ready, just use:
%> gem install raven
Alternatively you can download the Raven Gem from Rubyforge and install it manually
Note: Whichever solution you try to install Raven, you will need RubyGems >= 0.9
First note that for now only JRuby 0.9.1 is supported, the latest JRuby 0.9.2 has a bug that could lead to some problems with Raven. The only thing you will need to do is:
- Download the Raven distribution prepackaged with JRuby.
- Unzip it somewhere and set the environment variable JRUBY_HOME.
- Add the JRuby bin directory to your path.
- You're set!
