Standalone Package Installation
You can install Kubes as a standalone package. The nice thing about this approach is that it is easy. You don’t have to have Ruby installed. You don’t have to worry about compatible Ruby versions, gems, or conflicting system packages.
Important: If you’re using rvm or rbenv and already have Ruby installed, you should install kubes as a gem. Otherwise, different gem dependencies from the two installations can be used and cause all kinds of trouble.
Below are quickstart instructions for different OSes.
brew tap boltops-tools/software brew install kubes

The standalone installer creates a wrapper script in
Most users have
/usr/local/bin configured in their PATH. So this wrapper should work immediately.
Important: If you have a wrapper in
/usr/local/bin already, the installer will overwrite it.
How It Works
The standalone installer packages are built within a few minutes of the kubes gem release. Here are also details on how the standalone installer works: Standalone Details.
