Announcing Choes!

Announcing Choes!

It's turning out to be a Shoe-tastic day over here :)

Pleased to announce Choes, an easy way to switch between the various
colors of Shoes.

https://github.com/arnebrasseur/choes

It works almost exactly like chruby, so just put all your different
Shoes implementations in a directory, like so

.shoes
├── blue_shoes
├── brown_shoes
├── green_shoes
├── orange_shoes
├── purple_shoes
├── red_shoes
└── shoes4

Inlcude choes.sh in your shell configuration, and use choes <name> to
switch. This will set PATH and RUBYLIB so when you simply call `shoes`
it finds the right executable, and Ruby loads files from the right
place. It contains a hook and sample code to also switch rubies when
you switch Shoes.

It's still in an early stage, but functional.

Shoes on!
Arne
