       bundle-package - Package your needed .gem files into your application


       bundle package


       Copy  all of the .gem files needed to run the application into the vendor/cache directory.
       In the future, when running bundle install(1) bundle-install.1.html, use the gems  in  the
       cache in preference to the ones on


       Since Bundler 1.2, the bundle package command can also package :git and :path dependencies
       besides .gem files. This needs to be explicitly enabled via the --all option.  Once  used,
       the --all option will be remembered.


       By default, if you simply run bundle install(1) bundle-install.1.html after running bundle
       package(1) bundle-package.1.html, bundler will still  connect  to  to  check
       whether a platform-specific gem exists for any of the gems in vendor/cache.

       For instance, consider this Gemfile(5):

           source ""

           gem "nokogiri"

       If  you run bundle package under C Ruby, bundler will retrieve the version of nokogiri for
       the "ruby" platform. If you deploy to JRuby and run bundle install, bundler is  forced  to
       check to see whether a "java" platformed nokogiri exists.

       Even  though the nokogiri gem for the Ruby platform is technically acceptable on JRuby, it
       actually has a C extension that does not run on JRuby.  As  a  result,  bundler  will,  by
       default,  still  connect  to to check whether it has a version of one of your
       gems more specific to your platform.

       This problem is also not just limited to the "java" platform. A similar  (common)  problem
       can  happen  when developing on Windows and deploying to Linux, or even when developing on
       OSX and deploying to Linux.

       If you know for sure that the gems  packaged  in  vendor/cache  are  appropriate  for  the
       platform  you  are  on,  you  can  run  bundle  install  --local to skip checking for more
       appropriate gems, and just use the ones in vendor/cache.

       One way to be sure that you have the right platformed versions of all your gems is to  run
       bundle  package  on  an identical machine and check in the gems. For instance, you can run
       bundle package on an identical staging box during your staging process, and check  in  the
       vendor/cache before deploying to production.
