Local Git Repos

Bundler also allows you to work against a git repository locally instead of using the remote version. This can be achieved by setting up a local override:

bundle config local.GEM_NAME /path/to/local/git/repository

For example, in order to use a local sinatra repository, a developer could call:

[~/sinatra/sinatra-streaming/intro-streaming(master)]$ bundle config local.sinatra /Users/casiano/local/src/ruby/sinatra/sinatra-src

[~/sinatra/sinatra-streaming/intro-streaming(master)]$ bundle update
