Gem::Validator

Validator performs various gem file and gem database validation

Public Instance Methods

alien(gems=[]) click to toggle source

Checks the gem directory for the following potential inconsistencies/problems:

  • Checksum gem itself

  • For each file in each gem, check consistency of installed versions

  • Check for files that aren’t part of the gem but are in the gems directory

  • 1 cache - 1 spec - 1 directory.

returns a hash of ErrorData objects, keyed on the problem gem’s name.

String

Contents of the gem file

  # TODO remove me? The code here only validate an MD5SUM that was
  # in some old formatted gems, but hasn't been for a long time.
