For details regarding the three ways to install TruffleRuby, see Getting Started. The recommended way is to install GraalVM as it provides the most flexibility. However, you can also use what we call the standalone distribution of TruffleRuby, either via your Ruby manager/installer, or as a simple binary tarball.
Releases of the standalone distribution are available on GitHub. Nightly builds are also available.
The standalone distributions are the files:
Testing TruffleRuby in TravisCI #
TruffleRuby is now integrated in TravisCI.
truffleruby in the build matrix, such as:
language: ruby rvm: - 2.6.1 - truffleruby - truffleruby-head
See the TravisCI documentation for details. Please report any issue you might find.
Testing TruffleRuby in GitHub Actions #
In GitHub Actions, you can easily setup TruffleRuby with ruby/setup-ruby:
name: My workflow on: [push] jobs: test: strategy: fail-fast: false matrix: ruby: [ 2.6, truffleruby, truffleruby-head ] runs-on: ubuntu-latest steps: - uses: actions/checkout@v2 - uses: ruby/setup-ruby@v1 with: ruby-version: $ - run: ruby -v
See the README of that action for more documentation.
Testing TruffleRuby in CI #
If you use another continuous integration system, simply follow these instructions to run TruffleRuby in CI: download and extract the archive, add it to
PATH, and run the post-install script.

RubyGems Configuration #
Note that you also need to ensure
GEM_PATH are not set, so TruffleRuby uses the correct
