Is there a bundle command to tell me what would be updated with
bundle update, without actually making those updates?
As it turns out there is! Bundler 1.1 introduces a new command:
bundle outdated Show all of the outdated gems in the current bundle. This will give you a report of gems that have newer versions available.
By itself, this will list all of the gems in your Gemfile.lock that have newer versions, and what the current and latest versions are.
This gives a good preview of what you are up against if you want to get your gems up to date. From there, use git commits to make incremental changes.
Today I created an app with the suspenders gem, and noticed it is running on Rails 3.1.1, which I wanted to upgrade to 3.2.2.
I also saw a few other gems with version attributes:
gem 'sass-rails', '~> 3.1.4' gem 'coffee-rails', '~> 3.1.1' gem 'uglifier', '>= 1.0.3' gem 'rspec-rails', '~> 2.6.1' gem 'cucumber-rails', '1.1.0' gem 'capybara-webkit', '~> 0.7.1'
First I ran
rake to confirm all tests were passing,
bundle update to make sure the gems were all up to date with the versions specified, and created an initial commit.
Next I upgraded to rails 3.2.2 and reran
bundle update, and found out (after a couple itterations) that
coffee-rails had to be updated too, because of there dependance on
ActiveSomethingOrOther. Updating these three gems to their latest versions allowed
bundle update to do it’s thing.
I reran my tests, and did ran
git diff Gemfile.lock to see exactly what was new. For giggles I reran
bundle outdated and rejoiced at the shrinking list. Time to commit with a message about the gem version changes.
From here it was rinse and repeat, checking rubygems.org and looking at the dependencies, making small changes, bundling, raking, committing.
At the end of the road I had a good series of commits spelling out exactly what was needed to get to my goal of a fully updated rails 3.2.2 environment.
If you run
bundleoutdated and all you see is:
Outdated gems included in the bundle: * sprockets (2.4.0 > 2.1.2)
Then you are doing it right!
Read more about what’s new with bundler 1.1 from Pat Shaughnessy.
The suspenders gem, which has helped many people start a Rails app, now shows that the build is broken. Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) added that (76e42eb).
The shoulda-matchers gem is a collection of RSpec matchers for various Rails things. Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) went to town on it this week, cleaning everything up in an effort to make it more pleasant to hack on (2b98e49, 09544fa, 7b3d6d0, 96df0b1, 36006d8, 4ff1344, 3b3181b, 4574f51, 1c517d2, bd52483, e70e1bf, 41bccc8). Having done that, he added a
:primary option to the
have_db_column matcher (68e65b2). Matthew Daubert (MDaubs) fixed a JRuby failure and also added support for Rails 3.0 (d85503f).
Due to my complaining last week, the bourne gem now has a
NEWS file (8dfb077), thanks to Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw).
So we have this gem named paperclip. You might have heard of it. This week, Tony Brewerio (tony-brewerio) fixed the
:content_type validator (c4c22f8).
Prem Sichanugrist (sikachu) released version 3.0.1, which breaks backward compatibility (d61ddd5, 51bb0f9, 7088f5b, e1951ed, 9ea4a9b, 36d1289, 8390516, b3f9690, 8e80310, ee4107a, b3a63ed, 8a758c2, 84d2d08, fe706c6, b54904e, d3a7427, da5d716, ee42b19, e83f88f, 03f777f, 5232b19, 19aedbc).
Jon Yurek (jyurek) merged in something he has been working on: adapters for different types of I/O (6c5fe19, e10edcd, f4b6d48, 78cfebd, 89c8d11). Adding new file-like things is now easier, including URLs that act like files. Yeah, that’s right.
Jon is so going to write a blog post about this with more explanations, after he updates the README.
A bunch of fun commits to factory_girl this week. Chris Griego (cgriego) used pull requests as a forum to promote his ActiveAttr gem (81c9f2c and 4e2a672). Joshua Clayton (joshuaclayton) added a
before_create callback (24d417d).
Vasiliy Ermolovich (nashby) used ActiveSupport for deprecation warnings (bca13f1 and 28e3c25) and also made use of the
singleton_class method in Ruby 1.9 (08d01c1).
Mike Subelsky (subelsky) fixed a typo in the docs around the name
FactoryGirl::Syntax::Methods (266b1d6), Dan Croak (croaky) mentioned the supported Ruby versions in the README (bed50ec), Josh renamed
NEWS because that’s exactly what it is (4f5b775) and also renamed
*rb files to
*erb to handle yardoc better (a6ccbcb).
I totally dropped the ball on releasing a new version of capybara-webkit this week. Sorry about that! Joe Ferris (jferris), however, refactored some of the C++, which is very welcome (c2a2bd0 and 4531f65).
Some news in our appraisal gem this week: Gabe Berke-Williams (gabebw) added a contribution guideline (fd05fdf), then osheroff fixed appraisal to handle weird filenames (1d4fa93, b21220a, and 75a4970).
