Sample text

The make build type often exposed shortcomings in the developers’ makefiles, such as poor support for specifying custom install paths and linker flags. This was often noticed when Mac users attempted to install rocks written by Linux developers and vice versa, and also as developers transitioned from x86 to x86-64. The builtin type handles those issues transparently. 5 Conclusion In recent years, language-specific package managers have become an essential part of programming language ecosystems, as the internet allows large communities of developers to build upon each other’s work by reusing modules.

By lowering the barrier of entry early on, RubyGems gained enormous popularity and became the largest module repository among scripting languages. In fact, the aspect that seems to affect most directly the number of available packages in a repository is whether the repository allows developers to publish packages directly or if it requires some kind of approval step. From the 15 languages listed in Figure 1, 8 allow direct publishing of modules; 7 of them are in the top 9 positions when ranked by number of available packages.
