PIVOTAL LABS
SF Standup 5/6/2011: Bundler Blah Blah Blah Blah

Interesting Things

  • A certain Pivotal project runs ‘bundle update’ often, since they have a shared gem that gets updated a lot. They were wondering why it was so slow, and supposed it was due to slowness at rubygems.org, and thought a local mirror would help. They were wrong. Turns out the slowness is in the implementation of rubygems, whereby a 110K list of gems is marshalled and unmarshalled.
