Updating the Bundler Version Specified in Gemfile.lock
You might have noticed one change introduced with Bundler 2.3 - it now requires you to run the version of Bundler that’s specified in your
Gemfile.lock.1 This means that occasionally you might see something like this:
$ bundle Bundler 2.4.6 is running, but your lockfile was generated with 1.17.2. Installing Bundler 1.17.2 and restarting using that version. Fetching gem metadata from https://rubygems.org/. Fetching bundler 1.17.2 Installing bundler 1.17.2
Bundler does the safe thing automatically, but you can easily update the required Bundler version like this:
$ bundle update --bundler
Pretty meta, right?
I needed to do this out earlier today, when I noticed that Bundler 1.x is not compatible with Ruby 3. It took me a few minutes to recall the right way to update the required version of Bundler, so I thought to write this short article for posterity’s sake.
That’s all I have for you today. Keep hacking!
