What is Ruby?
Ruby is not just a programming language, but an entire philosophy about programming. It makes programming fun, productive, and rewarding. Most programs consist of code that needs to be organized into functions. And so most Ruby programs consist of classes and modules containing useful functions for interacting with the real world, operating on text, working with objects, creating GUIs, doing system administration tasks, building web applications… you name it. Ruby is at its heart a toolkit for accessing existing libraries like OpenSSL and providing something like Visual Basic style syntactic sugar to make working with them fun.
What is Nexus?
The Nexus repository is a repository that facilitates the discovery, access and installation of public artifacts. It supports open source dependencies and references them in Maven-compatible package declarations. The most common use is to resolve a target dependency by hashing a file with a specified MD5 sum and using Nexus to look up the artifact in its local cache or available repositories . It is also possible to combine Maven (and other) metadata with an artifact before publication.
