What is the difference between bundle pack and bundle cache


I cannot see the bundle pack command in the latest version of the bundler documentation, but it is still in the older version. There is no mention about it being deprecated either (AFAIK). The documentation content looks similar to bundle cache. Is it safe to assume that they are the same?


Solution

  • bundle pack is (or was) an alias of the bundle package command.

    bundle cache and bundle package used to be separate commands. With Bundler 2.4.0, the previous package subcommand was integrated into the cache subcommand with pull requests #7724 and #7389.

    All three commands (cache, package and pack) now do the exact same thing and are simple aliases. Preferably, you should use bundle cache as the primary name of the subcommand.
