I usually develop on a desktop machine, but I also have a laptop. I
want to be able to ensure that the gems I’ve installed on one machine
are available on the other.
$ gem env
seems to tell me where the gems actually live. But I also seem to have
a local ~/.gem directory. (and a .gemrc)
So my questions are these…
- what are the local directories for?
- Can I just copy the entire gem directory (from gem env) between two
machines, and expect that to work?
Some possible flies in the ointment…
- I’m using Mac OS X Leopard
- The machines are different architectures (One is a G5, and one is an
intel - but both are OS X)
