Bundler: Painless Dependency Management
Location: Ballroom I Level:
The new Bundler being released alongside Rails 3 has been designed to fix all of your dependency problems. It makes using dependencies easy and reliable at the same time. Bundler can handle your your Rails gem plugins, your application’s dependencies, and even your dependencies’ dependencies, all automatically. It even has built-in support for multiple environments, like development, testing and production.
In this talk Andre will walk through why Bundler was written, and why you should be using it for all of your applications. He’ll talk about how it makes dependency management painless, and how to use it effectively in common scenarios. He will cover using the Bundler with Rails 3, Rails 2, Sinatra, and any generic ruby application. He will also talk about about his experiences helping maintain the project, how to resolve the most common Bundler issues, and where the Bundler is headed in the future.
Andre Arko has been writing apps in Ruby and Rails for five years. He is a member of the Bundler team, and works for Engine Yard.
