Sai Kiran Mothe, Thank you, but I am just wondering, “what if I am in a remote
area with no internet connection and want to play around with Rails”. I just need
an answer for that
Basically a good idea is to list down the gems needed by my app and gems that I
think I can use and then download them through “gem install” command.
After that I can play around without an internet connection?
I think you’d need to be on a network for bundle to work. Once you’ve
bundled an app, you can continue to work on it, but I doubt that bundler
would work without a net – the first thing it does is try to read the
latest updates from rubygems.org. You can simulate this pretty easily by
disabling all of your network and trying to run bundle update in an
existing (working) application. See if it succeeds without giving up.
