Install gems from GitHub like from RubyForge

ruby rubygems github

Install gems from GitHub directly without specifying the source, just like you would if you were installing them from RubyForge.

Update rubygems to 2.1

$ sudo gem update --system

Add the sources to rubygems, so the gem names can be resolved to a source url.

$ sudo gem sources -a http://gems.github.com

Try it with a gem on GitHub.

$ sudo gem install simplificator-rwebthumb
