RubyGems Guides

An effort to provide awesome documentation for the RubyGems ecosystem.

Goals

  • Be the definitive place for RubyGems knowledge
  • Help out those new to RubyGems get started and get things done
  • Make it easy to contribute more guides

Want to help?

If a guide is empty, start filling it out! Or, make a new one! Pull requests are gladly accepted!

  • Port content from docs.rubygems.org
  • Port content from rubygems.org/pages/docs
  • Port content from help.rubygems.org knowledge base
  • Find lots of StackOverflow/ruby-talk questions and get their common answers in here
  • Fill out more guides!

Setup

Make sure you have jekyll installed (gem install jekyll), and run:

$ jekyll serve

The pages will be available at http://localhost:4000/

Every guide except for the Command and Specification Reference is just a straight up markdown page, so just go edit it!

For the Command Guide (command-reference.md), edit command-reference.erb and run:

$ rake command_guide

For the Specification Guide, the documentation comes directly from the Gem::Specification class in RubyGems. Edit it, set your RUBYGEMS_DIR to where your code directory is, and run:

$ RUBYGEMS_DIR=~/Dev/ruby/rubygems rake spec_guide --trace

Thanks

Huge thanks to thoughtbot whose playbook this is based off of.
