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 # or without agent: install-gems-remotely

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

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.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
