Disabling warnings

Important notes

NOTE: Please be responsible and proactive if you decide to disable warnings.

  • It's much cheaper and less stressful to try and upgrade your Ruby sooner.
  • If there are problems with a new version, it's better to report bugs before so they're fixed by the time you're forced to upgrade
  • Usually, you'll avoid lots of bugs by upgrading - and we rarely appreciate problems we never know we've avoided
  • There are often lots of speed and memory optimizations - which may mean lower hosting costs for your business
  • The sooner the Ruby community upgrades to a newer Ruby, the easier it will be for contributors to focus on making Ruby better
  • The more people stay up to date, the faster Ruby can evolve and stay not only relevant, but be a great technical decision for your business and a great investment into a technology that is both mature and also fast-evolving

So consider the warnings as being there to protect your precious time and your business in the long run.

Disabling through an environment variable

Just set the following in your shell/server configuration:

export RUBY_DEP_GEM_SILENCE_WARNINGS=1

Or, you can add this at the top of your Gemfile:

ENV['RUBY_DEP_GEM_SILENCE_WARNINGS'] = '1'

At that point, RubyDep shouldn't create any output (unless it crashes for some reason).

Disabling by requiring a special file (since RubyDep >= 1.4.x)

You can require the file directly in your Gemfile:

gem 'ruby_dep', '~> 1.4', require: 'ruby_dep/quiet'

or early in your sources:

require: 'ruby_dep/quiet'
