Unpacking Ruby Gems for Production
If you’re not unpacking your Ruby gems for your production environment, you’re likely doing something wrong.
Bundler makes the process dead simple. Make sure you have bundler installed:
gem install bundler
then make sure you have a valid
Gemfile with all of your app’s dependencies in it.
Unpack your Ruby gems
Unpacking all of your gems is dead simple:
bundle install --deployment
This will unpack all of your gems into
./vendor/bundle. If you want to unpack your gems into a specific location, use the
–path command-line switch:
bundle install --deployment --path gems/go/here
