An complete reimplementation of the gem server command as a Sinatra application.

Uh, Why?

  • Host your own gem server using Apache + Passenger, not Webrick
  • Drop this project into PassengerPane for instant offline access to RDoc Documentation for all installed Rubygems.


  1. git clone git://
  2. open .
  3. Drag the sinatra-rubygems folder into PassengerPane. Setup a gems.local alias for maximum convenience.

If you’re not using PassengerPane, use the following vhost config:

<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName gems.local #ServerAlias custom.gem.server.fqdn DocumentRoot "/path/to/sinatra-rubygems/public" RackEnv production <directory "/path/to/src/sinatra-rubygems/public"> Order allow,deny Allow from all

If you’d like to run this as a rack app, you can run rackup in the root of this project, then see the server at http://localhost:9292.
