Polishing Cloud Foundry’s Ruby Gem Support

by October 2, 2012

The Cloud Foundry team has released new features to improve management of Ruby gems in apps running on CloudFoundry.com. These features include support for using Git URLs in Gemfiles, handling of the BUNDLE_WITHOUT environment variable, and platform specification to control the gem installation process. With these improvements, it is now easier than ever to get your existing Ruby projects up and running on CloudFoundry.com.
In 2003, RubyGems was launched as Ruby’s package manager. Six years later, Rubyists began using Bundler–a means for managing and installing gem dependencies in the context of an application.
