Freeze extra gems?


#1

I’m just now getting around to freezing rails into my app. Is there a
way to freeze extra gems into my app as well, e.g. ezcrypto or even the
dreaded rmagick?

Yes, look for the gemsonrails gem.

Ooh, synchronicity. Thanks! Both this and gemsonrails look simple and
elegant. I reckon I’d lean towards the latter since it’s a
self-contained gem instead of a small set of manual patches. Is there
some reason I might want to consider that instinct?

Really, whatever you feel more comfortable with. There are a few
solutions listed in that post and they all have a different flavor but
ultimately achieve the same goal. As long as you know what’s going
on, do what feels best.
