Note for RubyGems >= 2.2.0
Generally, this gem is not needed on RubyGems >= 2.2.0. Simply set the
environment variable to either the path of your Gemfile or
- to auto-discover in parent directories.
However, not all
Gemfile syntax is supported yet. If you find bugs using
rubygems-bundler && Noexec
Let's stop using
bundle exec, kthx.
Introduction of the 1.0.0 release: http://niczsoft.com/2012/05/rubygems-bundler-integration-gem-1-0-0/
gem install rubygems-bundler
Next run (once):
And you're done!
You no longer need to modify
just remove the old entry to be sure it works as expected.
If you need to use your own
you can define it in
~/.gemrc to override the default:
custom_shebang: $env <your_custom_shebang_program>
Though you can let noexec do it's own thing and rely on looking up your binary via your Gemfile, you can also specify which binaries you want included or excluded. Create a .noexec.yaml file along side any Gemfiles you want to use. Then, to enable (or disable) the usage of your particular binary into your bundle, add an include or exclude section. For example:
In case you know certain binaries should not use
bundler you can define a list of this binaries:
export NOEXEC_EXCLUDE="gist bluepill"
Put it into
~/.bashrc or other shell initialization file to make it persistent.
Disabling any commands
In case you need explicitly skip loading
Bundler.setup, prefix your command with
NOEXEC_DISABLE=1 rails new app
To disable for whole shell session:
And to restore automatic behavior:
The old method is still available and might kick in if your tools use
NOEXEC environment variable:
NOEXEC=0 rails new app NOEXEC=skip gist
skip will disable the gem, this method is deprecated and will be removed with 1.2.0.
Things not going the way you'd like? Try your command again with
NOEXEC_DEBUG=1 set and create a ticket. I'll fix it right away!
If you do not get an answer relatively quickly, be sure to leave your email address so someone can get back to you later.
How does this work (ruby_noexec_wrapper)
It modifies gem wrappers shebang to load
Then, when you run gem binaries, it takes a look at your working directory,
and every directory above it until it can find a
If the executable you're running is present in your Gemfile,
it switches to using that
Gemfile instead (via
Rubygems and Bundler integration makes executable wrappers generated by rubygems aware of bundler.
rubygems-bundler was merged with noexec gem in version 0.9.0.
gem uninstall rubygems-bundler
Uninstallation of executable-hooks
rubygems-bundler does not change the shebangs itself anymore, this was extracted to
executable-hooks-uninstaller gem uninstall executable-hooks
this will set all gems to
/usr/bin/env ruby, which is one of the safest choices (especially when using rvm).
Removing from RVM
When using rvm, these additional steps will ensure this gem is removed and not installed again:
rvm get stable --without-gems="rubygems-bundler executable-hooks" rvm all-gemsets do gem uninstall --all --executables rubygems-bundler executable-hooks
