Parasite is currently at version 0.2. The Parasite package is composed of two gems: parasite and the camping_generator. The first provides a way to hook into the Rails development environment, while the second provides a generator for creating Camping apps quickly and painlessly. *** Installation To install parasite and the camping_generator fire up a terminal and: $ sudo gem install parasite parasite will require the camping_generator, along with Rails and Camping.
