Tired of writing long git paths to github repositories in Gemfile? Then you will find this useful. When the repository you need is public, you can use :github shortland instead of :git. And just specify github username and repository name separated by slash.
If repository name and username are the same, you can drop one:
gem "rails", :github => "rails/rails"
gem "rails", :github => "rails"
Are both equivalent to:
gem "rails", :git => "git://github.com/rails/rails.git"
I wonder, how didn’t we enjoy this all the time? :)
