vendor/rails does not imply edge

Reported by Xavier Noria | December 20th, 2007 @ 03:57 AM | in The Rails 3 Way

The first paragraph of page 4 reads: "The first thing it does is to check for the existence of vendor/rails in your project, which would mean that you're running edge".

This is not necesserarily the case, you can just freeze gems there with the task rails:freeze:gems. That's an important feature. For example it allows a single development machine to have a tree of projects where each one may run on different Rails versions. And you are confident they won't interfere with each other. That's my own laptop after a couple of years of Rails development.

You have the same independence and confidence in production, in case you host several applications in the same machine.

    Does this still apply to Rails 3 in some way?

    The offending content has been removed from Chapter 1, but the subject might make sense to reinstate there or elsewhere. I'm sure it'll have something to do with Bundler.

    There will overall coverage of Bundler, and the issue will come up there.
