The `gem mirror` RubyGems command, creates local mirrors of all gems from a remote gem source.

branch: master
README.md

rubygems-mirror

This gem can help you to full mirror of rubygems.org, it is an update to the old gem mirror command. It uses net/http/persistent and threads to grab the mirror set a little faster than the original. Eventually it will replace gem mirror completely. Right now the API is not completely stable (it will change several times before release), however, I will maintain stability in master.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Fast mirroring
  • Limited tests - just functional

REQUIREMENTS:

  • rubygems
  • net/http/persistent

USAGE

In a file at ~/.gem/.mirrorrc add a config that looks like the following:

---
- from: http://rubygems.org
  to: /data/rubygems
  parallelism: 10

Either install the gem:

$ gem install rubygems-mirror
$ gem mirror

Or clone the source code and use rake command:

$ bundle install
$ rake mirror:update
