Getting started


  • Install ruby or jruby if you don’t already have it. JRuby has a very easy install process, or you can use rvm


gem install ruboto


  • Install the JDK if it’s not on your system already
  • Install the Android SDK
  • Add the sdk to $ANDROID_HOME as an absolute path (Java does not expand tildes ~)
  • Add the sdk’s tools/ and platform-tools/ directory to your $PATH

Set Up

You can easily check or install the requirements above:
