Bundler in the getting started documentation

Hi All,

Someone in the rails issues posted that he didn’t know about installing the mysql gem.

I looked into in and realized there could be a lot more information on bundler or gems. Not talking about extension, but mandatory gems like mysql, pg, and sqlite3.

I also noticed that Gemfile/bundler were not mentioned. Personally, I use Gemfiles even for rails 2.3 projects.

What are the thought about adding it to getting started?

Is mentioning bundler adding yet another thing that people have to learn?

OR is it missing because it wasn’t really there pre 3.0 and people haven’t modified the docs yet?


I agree because I spent 5 hours to figure it out.
