please consider to support a local Gemfile so edit source file Gemfile is not needed, this is e.g. required to run cp with unicorn:

bundle exec unicorn_rails -E production

my patch suggestion: (also fixes faulty ignores for hg)

Is this any better than creating a vendor/plugins/local/Gemfile?

Updated by Ammler _ at 2011-07-05 09:31 am

You mean, I should make a Plugin to run cp with unicorn?

Updated by Gregor Schmidt at 2011-07-06 02:47 pm

Not a full-blown plugin - just a folder in vendor/plugins to put your Gemfile in.

I know, this seems like a weird work-around, but on the other hand, it would save us from another exception/special rule. And nobody knows, what this might buy us in the future.

This is just a proposal to fix your problem with minimal effort. If this is not feasible, please tell us.

This workaround is good and working, thanks...

Thought of a use case where we will need a Gemfile.local (and one that I'll be using more and more).

Plugins installed as gems... A Gemfile.local would let you add gem plugins in there, which would then let them include their own dependencies as part of rubygems itself.

This will especially become important with Rails 3 since it makes having gem plugins (engines) easier.
