Bundled Ruby Gems

Bundled gems are Ruby Gems (third-party libraries) that are installed by default when Ruby is installed. Unlike standard library, these gems can be updated independently from Ruby itself.

Current list of bundled gems:

  • MiniTest: A test suite with TDD, BDD, mocking and benchmarking
  • Net::Telnet: Telnet client library for Ruby
  • PowerAssert: Power Assert for Ruby.
  • Rake: Ruby build program with capabilities similar to make
  • Test::Unit: A compatibility layer for MiniTest
  • XMLRPC: Remote Procedure Call over HTTP support for Ruby
