Install a local Gemfile on a remote server

Call with the server's hostname (and user if you have no SSH agent), e.g.

install-gems-remotely my.server.com # or without agent: install-gems-remotely me@my.server.com

When you call it from a rails directory, it uploads your Gemfile, Gemfile.lock as well as the gemspecs of all vendored gems in to a temporary folder on the server and does a bundle install there.

If you need to install gems from anothere Gemfile, just do it like this:

BUNDLE_GEMFILE=Gemfile.something; install-gems-remotely my.server.com

This script is part of our geordi gem on github.

If you get a "ERROR: no tty present and no askpass program specified", please keep your script up to date by using our geordi gem.
