Manage your application's gem dependencies with less pain

Bundler: a gem to bundle gems Build Status

Bundler keeps ruby applications running the same code on every machine.

It does this by managing the gems that the application depends on. Given a list of gems, it can automatically download and install those gems, as well as any other gems needed by the gems that are listed. Before installing gems, it checks the versions of every gem to make sure that they are compatible, and can all be loaded at the same time. After the gems have been installed, Bundler can help you update some or all of them when new versions become available. Finally, it records the exact versions that have been installed, so that others can install the exact same gems.

Installation and usage

gem install bundler
bundle init
echo "gem 'rails'" >> Gemfile
bundle install
bundle exec rails new myapp
