BUNDLE-BINSTUBS(1) BUNDLE-BINSTUBS(1)

NAME

bundle-binstubs - Install the binstubs of the listed gems

SYNOPSIS

bundle binstubs GEM_NAME [--force] [--path PATH] [--standalone]

DESCRIPTION

Binstubs are scripts that wrap around executables. Bundler creates a small Ruby file (a binstub) that loads Bundler, runs the command, and puts it into bin/. Binstubs are a shortcut-or alternative- to always using bundle exec. This gives you a file that can be run directly, and one that will always run the correct gem version used by the application.

For example, if you run bundle binstubs rspec-core, Bundler will create the file bin/rspec. That file will contain enough code to load Bundler, tell it to load the bundled gems, and then run rspec.

This command generates binstubs for executables in GEM_NAME. Binstubs are put into bin, or the --path directory if one has been set. Calling binstubs with [GEM [GEM]] will create binstubs for all given gems.

OPTIONS

--force
Overwrite existing binstubs if they exist.
--path
The location to install the specified binstubs to. This defaults to bin.
--standalone
Makes binstubs that can work without depending on Rubygems or Bundler at runtime.
--shebang
Specify a different shebang executable name than the default (default ´ruby´)
--all
Create binstubs for all gems in the bundle.
