I would like to propose an enhancement to Bundler to support installing and saving a gem to Gemfile all using the CLI and the command will look like:

bundler install rake --save

This could then be further extended to allow saving it to the right group:

bundler install rake --save development, test
bundler install rake --save production

I will be happy to create a PR for the same.

Is it worth pursuing?

There's an add command that exists currently in the codebase but isn't exposed via CLI yet, in addition to the existing inject command

Thanks for the suggestion! We think this is a good idea. Today, you can add gems to your Gemfile using the bundle inject command, but you have to include the exact version that you want to add. In the next version of Bundler, there will be a bundle add command that lets you add a single gem without having to also give a version number.
