CircleCI 2.0 caching



I’ve started using CircleCI 2.0. Thanks for the great tool whatsoever.
I am a bit confused regarding the caching.

  1. My build contains of some OS dependencies, like FreeTDS which I need to install before I run my bundle install with tiny_tds gem. How can I cache it since it does not change almost ever?
  2. My Gemfile.lock doesn’t change and cache is found, but bundle install is executed everytime the build runs. What’s wrong with my config.yml file?

Restoring Cache
Found a cache from build 166 at v1-app-bundle-387dsdoSRtq9MxmmCaM5ASWaMaX_jZy9iQket7ZgeIU=
Size: 32 B
Cached paths:
  * /vendor/bundle

Downloading cache archive...
Validating cache...

Unarchiving cache...
bundle check || bundle install
Exit code: 0
#!/bin/bash -eo pipefail
bundle check || bundle install
The following gems are missing
 * rake (12.3.0)


Seems like I had issues with cache path which has been changed.
The proper cache path for bundle is ./vendor/bundle and not /vendor/bundle

Thanks to the support team.
