Ruby Support on Windows


#1

Hi :wave:
Thank you very much for bringing Windows support to Travis CI.
I hope Travis adds support for the popular cross-platform language Ruby, as soon as possible.

Even though ruby has been listed under the packages at https://docs.travis-ci.com/user/reference/windows#pre-installed-packages, the build currently fails with following message:

The language 'ruby' is currently unsupported on the Windows Build Environment.

Hello, there.

Indeed, Ruby 2.5.x is pre-installed via Chocolatey.

The issue here is that, with language: ruby, we compile a script to execute the job, but the script will require some additional tooling that is not yet available on the Windows image yet. We will work on that soon.

@BanzaiMan is it possible to add a Windows build using the preinstalled Ruby to an existing language: ruby Travis configuration? How would I need to adapt?
