.rvmrc, .ruby-version y .ruby-gemset

The project .rvmrc files are intended to be used to setup your project's ruby environment when you switch to the project root directory.

Véase Use rvmrc or ruby-version file to set a project gemset with RVM? en StackOverFlow

If your .rvmrc file contains custom shell code, continue using .rvmrc as it allows you to include any shell code.

If your only aim is to switch Ruby versions, then use .ruby-version which is supported by other Ruby version switchers such as rbenv or chruby . This file also does not require trusting as it is just the name of a Ruby version and will not be executed in any way.

If you use .ruby-version you can include @gemset in the file but this will not be compatible with other switchers. To maintain compatibility use the gemset name in a separate file .ruby-gemset which is ignored by other tools.

For example, if you have a simple .rvmrc:

rvm use 1.9.3@my-app
It can be transformed to .ruby-version:

1.9.3
And .ruby-gemset:

my-app
Be sure to remove the .rvmrc file as it takes precedence over any other project configuration files:

rm .rvmrc
