Before installing the gem in your codebase, first ensure you have created a project in Prospector.

Prospector as a service comes with a free, open source client gem to install in your codebase. The client gem collects information about what frameworks are being used in your application, such as the name and current version being used, and reports that back to the Prospector service via the API.

The gem also allows easy configuration of a client secret and token, which ties your details with the corresponding project on the Prospector website.

You can read the complete installation notes in the open source project README, available on Github here.
