Offline documentation for ruby on rails

I don't know about the "windows" part, but on my system it's already
there. Running "gem server" and going to http://localhost:8808 in a
browser shows me the rdoc for all the installed gems, including Rails.

HTH!

I don't know about the "windows" part, but on my system it's already
there. Running "gem server" and going tohttp://localhost:8808in a
browser shows me the rdoc for all the installed gems, including Rails.

What I do is run rake doc:rails which creates the same docs as on
api.rubyonrails.org (ie all the frameworks on one page). Then I serve
that locally and point the rdoc widget at it (so that I get search).

Really? On my system, Rails is one of the gems that does *not* show an
rdoc link when I do that.

Best,

!suckimoto, you're right -- the rdoc link is inactive. Scratch that, then :slight_smile:

That's the slightly annoying thing - the rails gem is (mostly) just a
stub that provides the rails executable, bit of bootstrapping and just
depends on the main framework gems (activerecord, activeresource,
activesupport etc...). Those frameworks do have rdoc.
