rake gems throws error if 'echoe' gem is not installed

Reported by Umair Siddique | November 17th, 2008 @ 08:44 PM

If echoe gem is not installed, the authlogic (and as well as searchlogic) gems fail in "rake gems" call.

Pretty obvious, I'm on Windows :)

C:\Users\Umair\Documents\NetBeansProjects\testproject>rake gems (in C:/Users/Umair/Documents/NetBeansProjects/testproject) - [I] authlogic rake aborted! You have a nil object when you didn't expect it! The error occurred while evaluating nil.dependencies

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

    Hmm, well the whole reason I went with echoe is to avoid the requiring of a dependency. Hoe does this, which is the whole reason echoe was created. That is strange though, I'll look into an alternative. Thanks for letting me know about this.

    I added in an error message that requires echoe be installed if you are trying to run meta tasks. I am not sure why rails is running some of those tasks, but at least now its an option. The alternative is to use hoe which always requires itself, which is a little excessive for those that JUST want to use the library and not run any of the tasks.
