Building for the Splunk Platform

Ruby SDK on Ruby 2.0?


Ruby 2 is over half a year old by now. Yet the splunk SDK for ruby 1.0.2 fails with the message:

/opt/local/lib/ruby2.0/gems/2.0.0/gems/splunk-sdk-ruby-1.0.2/lib/splunk-sdk-ruby/context.rb:401:in `request_by_url': uninitialized constant Splunk::Context::OpenSSL (NameError)
from /opt/local/lib/ruby2.0/gems/2.0.0/gems/splunk-sdk-ruby-1.0.2/lib/splunk-sdk-ruby/context.rb:314:in `request'
from /opt/local/lib/ruby2.0/gems/2.0.0/gems/splunk-sdk-ruby-1.0.2/lib/splunk-sdk-ruby/context.rb:196:in `login'
from /opt/local/lib/ruby2.0/gems/2.0.0/gems/splunk-sdk-ruby-1.0.2/lib/splunk-sdk-ruby/service.rb:82:in `connect'
from ./3_blocking_searches.rb:31:in `<main>'

On 1.9.3 (and only 1.9.3 - 1.8.7 fails too) it works out of the box. We're currently working around the problem by accessing the REST API directly. Are there any plans to make the SDK ruby2 compatible or is the project dead?

We have the same problem.

Any information to help us would be extremely helpful. We are considering another logging platform as we don't want to have to rollback to ruby 1.9.3/
