Bundler: a gem to bundle gems

Bundler makes sure Ruby applications run 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

To install (or update to the latest version):

gem install bundler

To install a prerelease version (if one is available), run

gem install bundler --pre
. To uninstall Bundler, run
gem uninstall bundler
.

Bundler is most commonly used to manage your application's dependencies. For example, these commands will allow you to use Bundler to manage the

rspec
gem for your application:
bundle init
bundle add rspec
bundle install
bundle exec rspec

See bundler.io for the full documentation.
