It’s irritating to run gem commands like
rspec and others, only to find they needed to be executed via
bundle exec. As a simple solution, I use a simple zsh function, combined with aliases for commonly used commands.
Here’s the function (which I’ve named
if [[ -a Gemfile ]]; then bundle exec $* else command $* fi
It’s very simple. If there’s a
Gemfile in the pwd, it runs commands through bundle exec. Otherwise it just runs them.
I’ve combined this with some aliases for much less pain and less frustration:
alias rake='be rake' alias cap='be cap' alias rspec='be rspec'
