    If you are using rvm and want to load project specific ruby version and gems automatically when you access the project directory, for this you can use a very simple command

    rvm --create --ruby-version use ruby-version-number@gemsetname


    rvm --create --ruby-version use ruby-2.2.0@findnerd

    If you want the gems to be loaded from the global gemset then in that case

    rvm --create --ruby-version use ruby-2.2.0

    By using this command you wont have to use rvm command to load a particular gemset or ruby version and you can manage different projects running on different ruby and rails version simultaneously.

    Behind the scenes

    It basically creates two files -

    1 - A .ruby-version file that contains the required ruby version "ruby-2.2.0"

    2 - A .ruby-gemset file that contains gemset name in this case "findnerd".

    which basically tells rvm to load the required configuration.

    I hope this helps anyone trying to cope up with multiple versions of ruby,rails or gem versions.
