Bundler may be the future, but after way too many hours of trying to get my app working with Rails 2.3.5, bundler 0.9.x, and Heroku I have decided to throw in the towel and switch back to Heroku’s gem manifest system.
I had Bundler 0.8 working very nicely but for whatever reason I couldn’t get the gems to play nice with each other in the new version. I had the app working locally and the tests passing, but on Heroku the app wouldn’t boot. This could have something to do with Heroku running Bundler 0.9.5 while I was running 0.9.7 locally. Whatever the reason, I’ve decided to take a break from bundler and wait until its development stabilizes a bit—at least on Heroku.
