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

Build Status Maintainability

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'ruby-mext'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install ruby-mext

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