Remove bundler

Can you remove bundler without any problem – for rails?

The biggest problem will be that you will not be able to use it. Why
would you want to remove it?

I have some problem with Gemfile.lock and would like to get rid of it.

Can I just delete it? And can I turn off bundler?

Did you try deleting the file and running ‘bundle install’ again? I was curious to see if gemfile.lock would get recreated if I deleted it and ran bundle install again, and it did… anyhow, my 2cents would be that removing something like bundler without a proactive reason might cause you more trouble than just figuring out what is going wrong. At least that’s what I would tell myself in same situation.

I get you point. Is there a way to deactivate it. I just don’t feel I

need it.

I wish I could tell you… it seems if you are going to it will have to be pretty deep as it seems that it is invoked when a rails app is spun up. I do see that it is a gem… I guess you could uninstall the bundler gem and then follow the error messages, that might be an empirical way to figure this out… sorry cant be more help.

Hi, if you remove/deactivate Bundler, how do you plan on managing your

gem dependencies? If you’re using Rails 3, then you’ll be removing an

important component of the system. Can you please post the exact issue

that you’re having because it’s not very clear as to why you’re wanting to

remove Bundler?

But you are almost certainly wrong. I've never seen a Rails project
that didn't need a gem dependency management solution, which is what
bundled is. Just get it working.

There is some problem which you should post here so that we can help you. Deactivating/ deleting Bundler gem sounds bad to me

Rails gave me a warning that I needed a certain gem i18n. Do I install
that gem or can I just update my app?

I could learn bundler. Or if I can run without it I could also manage my
app like pre-bundler. This hasn't been a problem before. If I missed a
gem I would get a warning from passenger.

"I've never seen a Rails project that didn't need a gem dependency

gem management solution? :slight_smile: I only have a few apps I want to run. And
I've managed before.

If you do actually need it then just add the gem to Gemfile (in the
root of your app) and run
bundle install
If the problem is that rails thinks you need it but you do not then
maybe it is already in Gemfile but should not be. In that case remove
it from Gemfile and run bundle install.

Can I ignore the Gemfile.lock?

Will the gem be installed in my rvm gemset? Or where does it go?

You should include it in your source control system (along with
Gemfile). Bundler uses to keep track of what it has done I think.

Yes to the former I believe. You can always try it and see for yourself.

If you add a gem and are using a gemset it will go in your gemset… makes it pretty easy to swallow experimentation as you can just delete your gemset and start over if you really want.
