Gem Version

DESCRIPTION:

This 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 : use either sudo apt-get install rubygems (on Debian) or sudo gem install rubygems

  • net/http/persistent: use sudo gem install net-http-persistent

INSTALL:

  • use gem install rubygems-mirror

  • or install from sources: clone this repo then run `rake mirror:update`

USAGE

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

    ---
    - from: http://rubygems.org
      to: /data/rubygems
      parallelism: 10
      retries: 3
      delete: false 
      skiperror: true
  • Then run `gem mirror`
