You are a Python developer and every time you have to install a Ruby gem you throw up in your mouth a little. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could install Ruby gems into your virtualenv? Yeah, it would.
Stick this in your virtualenv’s
export GEM_HOME="$VIRTUAL_ENV/gems" export GEM_PATH="" export PATH=$PATH:"$GEM_HOME/bin"
That’s it! You’re welcome. :)
