If you have
Gemfile file in your repository you know what Bundler is.
One of the most often used command is
bundle update <gem_name>. What does it do? It updates the gem together with all its dependencies.
However sometimes you want to update only a single gem to avoid any potential problem with updating too many libraries at a time. Bundler to the rescue! Since version 1.14 there is a
--source in older versions) flag which prevents Bundler from updating gem’s dependencies:
bundle update <gem_name> --conservative
You can find all available flags in the official documentation.
