- Thursday: NYC Lean Startup Meetup
Q&A with Eric Ries
Description: Eric Ries, the author of The Lean Startup, is in NYC and joining us to answer questions from the community. We will be doing light moderation, but this event is really about you getting a chance to talk to Eric.
You can reference the 4 most recently selected elements from the Elements panel via these variables.
When you shell out from your ruby script and run the “bundle” command, it will bundle within the context of your script’s Gemfile (even if you cd first to another directory with a different Gemfile).
If you need to shell out and
bundle outside the context of your script’s bundle, use
Bundler.with_clean_env. For example:
`cd /some/other/bundled/project && bundle`
We ran into a need for this on LicenseFinder – we wrote an integration test suite that bootstraps a bundled project, adds dependencies with various licenses to it, then tests the output of license finder on the project.
