IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 Help

Using the Bundler

This feature is only supported in the Ultimate edition.

The following is only valid when Ruby Plugin is installed and enabled!

In this section:


IntelliJ IDEA implements the bundler as a powerful way of handling gem dependencies. The bundler is required to execute an application with the same set of gems it has been created and tested with.

IntelliJ IDEA supports the bundler since version 0.8, but it is recommended to use version 0.9 and higher.


To start using the bundler with IntelliJ IDEA, make sure that the following prerequisites are met:

  • RubyGems version 1.3.7 or higher is installed.
  • The bundler gem is installed.

SUDO permission

On the UNIX-like computers, if the permissions are required to invoke the Bundler commands in a project, IntelliJ IDEA automatically understands from the command output that running with sudo is needed, and suggests to re-run this command with sudo.

rm chef sudo
