Bundler guard allows to automatically & intelligently install/update bundle when needed.

  • Compatible with Bundler 1.0.x
  • Tested against Ruby 1.9.3, 2.0.0, 2.1.0, JRuby & Rubinius.


Add the gem to your Gemfile:

group :development do
  gem 'guard-bundler', require: false

Add the plugin definition to your Guardfile by running this command:

$ guard init bundler


Please read the Guard usage doc


Guard::Bundler plugin can be really adapted to all kind of projects.

You can tweak the default Guardfile template (created by guard init bundler) if you need to watch files other than the Gemfile or *.gemspec (or if they are in different paths).

Please read the Guard usage doc for more information about the Guardfile DSL.
