What is gemset in Ruby on Rails?

This article will help you understand what is gemset in ruby and all about creating and using gemsets in Ruby and RVM.

Gemset gives you the privilege of creating set of gems specific to your particular rails application.

    gemset is basically set of gems collected together
    These set of gems collected together can be used for the development of your particular application

In-Built Gemsets

    When you install particular Ruby using RVM then it comes with 2 gemsets. viz. default and global.
    You can list the gemsets that are available for current ruby version selected using command:

rvm gemset list


1.Creating new Gemset

    You can create new gemset using following command:

rvm gemset create rails4

        This will create a new gemset with the name ‘rails4’

2. Using Particular Gemset

    As you may have more that one gemsets installed on your machine, you might need to use specific version of gemset for your particular application. you can use specific gemset using following command:

rvm gemset use rails4


3. Setting Default Gemset

    If you have more than one gemsets installed on your machine then you may want to set one of the gemset as the default gemset. You can do this by using following command,

rvm --default use ruby-2.0.0-p247@rails4

The command will set gem 'rails4' as the default gemset with your Ruby with the version ruby-2.0.0-p247.
4. Deleting a Gemset

    You can delete particular gemset using following command:

rvm gemset delete rails4

These are the basics of creating, listing, using and deleting gemsets for your development. This answers the basic question of what is gemset by being able to make compartment/set of specific gems required for the development. You might want to read more about Gemfile and Gemfile.lock for understanding gem specifics for Rails project.

Get the Current url in ruby on rails

request.refererrequest.fullpathrequest.fullpath.split("?")[0]request.referer or request.env['HTTP_REFERER'] your controller to get the referer url. 

--------------------
request.original_url
request.url
request.host_with_port
<link rel="canonical" href="<%= request.url %>" />
<%=request.path%>
How can I get the current absolute URL in my Ruby on Rails view?
The request.request_uri only returns the relative URL.
request.env['REQUEST_URI']

 For Rails 3.2 or Rails 4 you should use request.original_url to get the current URL. More detail.

For Rails 3: You want "#{request.protocol}#{request.host_with_port}#{request.fullpath}", since request.url is now deprecated.

For Rails 2: You want request.url instead of request.request_uri. This combines the protocol (usually http://) with the host, and request_uri to give you the full address
