Ruby::Mext music extensions for the ruby language (native ruby code)

Build Status Maintainability Gem Version

These are extensions of usual idiomatic ruby objects (i.e. Numeric, Array, etc.) that make ruby a comfortable language for musicians.

It is the usual unfinished ever-expanding project. Feel free to contribute to it in the form of pull requests if you are so inclined.


Some Functions (notably: Mext::Math::Polynomial) require octave to be installed and running on the same computer.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'ruby-mext'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install ruby-mext


Just add anywhere in your code:

require 'ruby-mext'

and boum! There you go. You have the extensions.

There should be some documentation here for each extension. Feel free to contribute them! :-D


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to

Please note: I am trying to keep this library as simple and easy to use as possible. Let's not over-feature it as we (musicians) always do.
