Here’s what I was hoping to accomplish:
I have a shell script that: (1) updates a git repository, (2) calls a ruby gem to compile the output, and (3) syncs the compiled output to a directory where the static website content lives.
The script works when I invoke it from the shell. So I added a cron job (via the web panel) to run the script periodically. I pointed the cron job to the script’s absolute path and it appears to partly work; here’s the output:
# git is working: Already up-to-date. # invoking nanoc breaks: /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:777:in `report_activate_error': Could not find RubyGem nanoc (>= 0) (Gem::LoadError) from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:211:in `activate' from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:1056:in `gem' from /home/rfriesel/.gems/bin/nanoc:18 # cp works fine: `/home/rfriesel/infinite-notes/output/characters/index.html' -> `/home/rfriesel/jest.founddrama.net/characters/index.html' # etc.
Anyone seen anything like this before? Any ideas?
