Bundler provides a consistent environment for Ruby projects by tracking and installing the exact gems and versions that are needed.

Bundler is an exit from dependency hell, and ensures that the gems you need are present in development, staging, and production. Starting work on a project is as simple as bundle install.

Getting Started

This guide assumes that you have Ruby installed. If you do not have Ruby installed, do that first and then check back here! Any modern distribution of Ruby comes with Bundler preinstalled by default.

Getting started with bundler is easy! Specify your dependencies in a Gemfile in your project's root:

source 'https://rubygems.org'
gem 'nokogiri'
gem 'rack', '~> 2.2.4'
gem 'rspec'

Install all of the required gems from your specified sources:

$ bundle install
$ git add Gemfile Gemfile.lock
