I would love to see Ruby (Language made portable)
Though it is possible it isn't very practical.
Ruby is an open-source coding language.
I would only like to see a portable version of the basic materials to run it in the Command Prompt Portable application.
In other words I would love to see the process below automated. With the exception of Notepad++ being optional.
The portable package shouldn't be installed in the "portable apps" folder to avoid conflicts. Perhaps an executable message to point the person to an explanation on how to use the ruby program. NOT HOW TO USE THE LANGUAGE!
To run Ruby portably you need three things...
1. Command Prompt Portable - To execute ruby code
2. Notepad++ Portable - to write the code
3. Ruby Windows installation - the ruby language
Note... Links to helpful websites are provided.
Download and install Command Prompt Portable and Notepad++ Portable
In the root directory of the drive create a folder called "UtilsDirectory"
Install Ruby Windows Installation inside the the UtilsDirectory Folder.
Delete the ruby entry from inside the start menu.
Go into the root directory of the drive and navigate to the portable apps folder and the to the Command Prompt Portable folder and then to the data folder. Open the Batch file with the normal windows text editor and add this line.
Save and close the windows.
Open Notepad++ and type:
puts 'Hello World!'
puts 'Good Bye World!'
Save it in the UtilsDirectory folder as hello-world.rb
Open Command Prompt Portable and type:
cd /UtilsDirectory/ and press enter
ruby hello-world.rb and press enter
if you see the following then you have confiqured Ruby for portable use.
Good Bye World!
