BASH shell wrapper script to setup RVM environment and execute Ruby scripts via cron

Here's a BASH shell wrapper script I use to execute Ruby scripts via cron. It ensures the following are setup correctly: environment variables, Ruby version, RVM gemset, and will pass command line arguments to Ruby. It assumes an .rvmrc file exists in the same directory as the script being executed.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# check if rvm_path var is empty and should be sourced
if [ "x$rvm_path" = "x" ]; then
  source $HOME/.bashrc
fi

# load  rvm
if [[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] ; then
  source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"
elif [[ -s "/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] ; then
  source "/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm"
else
  printf "ERROR: An RVM installation was not found.\n"
  exit
fi

# enter script directory
SCRIPT_DIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" && pwd )"
cd $SCRIPT_DIR

# source .rvmrc file
source .rvmrc

# get script name
SCRIPT_NAME=`basename $0`

# replace ".sh" with ".rb"
RUBY_SCRIPT=`echo ${SCRIPT_NAME} | sed 's/\.sh$/\.rb/'`

# construct command line with arguments
COMMAND="./${RUBY_SCRIPT} ${@}"

# execute
$COMMAND

Usage:

# make both files executable (chmod +x script.sh script.rb)
/my/path/script.sh
/my/path/script.rb

Cron entry added to /etc/crontab:

SHELL=/bin/bash
