Try RubyGems 2.0

You can test rubygems 2.0 with RVM:

rvm get head
rvm use 2.0.0 --install
rvm rubygems head --verify-downloads 1

now you need to export this for automated using Gemfile:

export RUBYGEMS_GEMDEPS=-

installing gems from Gemfile is as easy as:

gem install --file Gemfile

There are more formats supported:

  • gem.deps.rb
  • Gemfile
  • Isolate

Nice. Is there a "what's new" somewhere?

try https://github.com/rubygems/rubygems/issues?milestone=2&page=1&state=open&utf8=%E2%9C%93 - it's not all, it does not include the described feature, but should be good overview of the fixed problems

@fbernier I found this article to have a really great overview of "whats new in 2.0" -- http://globaldev.co.uk/2013/03/ruby-2-0-0-in-detail/

Why people should not try other tools? Is there anything wrong with Rubygems - can you open tickets for Rubygems for the things that you think that are preventing people from using Rubygems and it's Gemfile support?

For long time I was under impression that Bundler will be slowly merging into Rubygems and that both teams were in agreement on that. But right now when part of the work is already done I see you (@indirect) are against the idea of merging. I have to say that hurts me as basically community has now to duplicate efforts on both tools. Is there any reason why we should not continue on improving also Rubygems support for Gemfile's?

I'm not against the idea of merging, and I've already answered your questions on Github. https://github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/commit/dc07790042d78c525d7d52616c78cb2d55c0e764#commitcomment-10395909
