Sure, but rather:

  guix environment --ad-hoc ruby

to create an environment containing Ruby.

I’ve never used Bundler, but I think that’s what it does.

So this is all possible, like on any other GNU/Linux system.  The
downside, of course, is that Bundler is not integrated with Guix and
does not provide the same reproducibility guarantees and same level of
control over environments.

The ideal way would be to provide Guix packages for the Gems you need,
using ‘guix import’, and then use that to manage your development
