A short tutorial on RVM

RVM is the equivalent of Python's virtualenvs.  Here's how to get started.

First, install RVM from https://rvm.io/ with these instructions.

Workflow is as follows, where some_name is a token name for your environment and some_software is rails for example:

rvm gemset create some_name
rvm gemset use some_name
gem install some_software .gems
rvm gemset export some_name
RVM  can import a Gemfile thusly:
rvm gemset import some_name.gems
