How to Use Custom Version of Kubes
If you want or need to run a forked version of kubes, here’s how:
Change Version Number
First, clone down the source and change version number so you can identify that it’s a custom version. Clone down the project:
$ git clone https://github.com/boltops-tools/kubes
Update lib/kubes/version.rb so you’ll be able to tell that it’s a custom build. For example:
module kubes VERSION = "0.8.2.custom" end
There are 2 ways to use the custom version:
- Gemfile: Forked Git Source
- Gem Package: Build and Install
Gemfile: Forked Git Source
kubes to use your repo with the forked version. Example:
source "https://rubygems.org" gem 'kubes', git: 'https://github.com/REPO/kubes', branch: "master"
Remember to change
REPO, to your repo name.
Gem Package: Build and Install

$ bundle $ rake build pkg/kubes-0.8.2.custom.gem
