A Sprout Bundle is a collection of Ruby code that supports a particular interest or technology. At the time of this writing, we have two bundles available.

  • ActionScript 2 Bundle (link) which supports ActionScript 2.0 development
  • ActionScript 3 Bundle (link) which supports ActionScript 3.0, MXML and AIR development

Bundles are the named entry point that the sprout shell tool uses to find project generators.

Bundles should be packaged and published to the RubyForge gem repository with very specific names as follows:

sprout-#{bundle_name}-bundle where ${bundle_name} is what will be given to the -n parameter of the sprout gem.

The as3 bundle is released as sprout-as3-bundle on RubyForge, but we can simply enter the short name when creating new as3 projects.
