Gem in a Box – Really simple rubygem hosting

Build Status Gem Version

Geminabox lets you host your own gems, and push new gems to it just like with rubygems.org. The bundler dependencies API is supported out of the box. Authentication is left up to either the web server, or the Rack stack. For basic auth, try Rack::Auth.

System Requirements

Tested on Mac OS X 10.8.2
Ruby 1.9.3-392

Tests fail on Ruby 2.0.0-p0

Server Setup

gem install geminabox

Create a config.ru as follows:

require "rubygems"
require "geminabox"

Geminabox.data = "/var/geminabox-data" # ... or wherever
run Geminabox

Start your gem server with 'rackup' to run WEBrick or hook up the config.ru as you normally would (passenger, thin, unicorn, whatever floats your boat).

Legacy RubyGems index

RubyGems supports generating indexes for the so called legacy versions (< 1.2), and since it is very rare to use such versions nowadays, it can be disabled, thus improving indexing times for large repositories. If it's safe for your application, you can disable support for these legacy versions by adding the following configuration to your config.ru file:

Geminabox.build_legacy = false

Client Usage

gem install geminabox

gem inabox pkg/my-awesome-gem-1.0.gem

Configure Gem in a box (interactive prompt to specify where to upload to):

gem inabox -c

Change the host to upload to:

gem inabox -g HOST

Simples!
