Ruby Gem not install dependency

I created a Ruby Gem and published it. I tried downloading it and I keep getting cannot require my dependent gem. The code is at and the gem in question is httparty. The error that I am getting is

~/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.0.0-p353@sullivan_cotter/bundler/gems/toolshed-46404c5af06d/lib/toolshed.rb:2:in `require': cannot load such file -- httparty (LoadError)

I have updated my to use add_dependency instead but that doesn't seem to be helping. Could it be conflicting with other Gems?


The version on rubygems is still the old one with only development dependencies. Worked fine when I downloaded and built you gem from Github.

Yes sorry I solved this by adding them as a dependency not a development dependency.

spec.add_dependency "httparty" spec.add_dependency "json" spec.add_dependency "pivotal-tracker"

You have specified development dependency, but call the rake form binary, just put rake gem dependency into usual add_dependency, and remove ::gem call to:


require 'rubygems'
require 'toolshed'
require 'rake'

One again question: for what do you need the binary?

The toolshed.gemspec seems correct. How do you call it? Remove the installed gem with gem uninstall toolshed including binary. Make sure that the bundle install, and then call to bundle exec bin/toolshed.rb is correct after patching the dependencies.

After that generate the gem with gem build toolshed.gemspec, and install the gem with gem install toolshed-0.0.4.gem. Make sure that binary works. Only then publish the gem.
