Jerarquía de Ficheros y Directorios, Nombres y Requires

In general, you will have one class per file and one folder per module namespace, so for instance:

When a developer wants to use your library, they should be able to do so (in almost all cases) by making a single require statement that is identical to the gem name.

That means that in the root file you need to make any additional require statements necessary for your gem to function. So if I have a MyGem module, a MyGem::Widget class, and a MyGem::Widgets::FooBar class, the lib/my_gem.rb file in my gem might look like this:

require 'external_library' # require any external dependencies

module MyGem # it is best to declare the base module at the top

require 'my_gem/version' # created by Bundler
require 'my_gem/widget'
require 'my_gem/widgets/foo_bar'
By requiring all of the files necessary for your gem to run in the base file you make it easier for developers to use your library.
