rbenv-gemset

rbenv-gemset is an extension for the rbenv ruby version manager that allows you to use "gemsets", sandboxed collections of gems. This lets you have multiple collections of gems installed in different sandboxes, and specify (on a per-application basis) which sets of gems should be used.

Installation

  1. Clone rbenv-gemset to the $HOME/.rbenv/plugins directory:

    $ mkdir -p ~/.rbenv/plugins
    $ cd ~/.rbenv/plugins
    $ git clone git://github.com/jamis/rbenv-gemset.git
    
  2. There is no step 2!

Usage

In your application directory, create a file named .rbenv-gemsets and put the names of the gemsets you want to use in it, separated by whitespace. The first gemset in the list will be the primary gemset, where new gems will be installed.

    $ echo my-gemset > .rbenv-gemsets

Now, all commands involving gems will use the gemsets you specified.

The gemset plugin will cause rbenv to search for the .rbenv-gemsets file in the current directory, as well as in all ancestor directories, so as long as there is an .rbenv-gemsets file at or above the current directory.

Alternatively, you can set the RBENV_GEMSET_FILE environment variable to the absolute path of the gemset file.
