Offline Gem Server

July 8th, 2009

I’ve had an offline gem documentation server installed for a while on my machine, after following Jason Seifer’s instructions.

Recently, however, when I installed new gems I got the following error:

invalid argument: –fmt=html

This is, I think, because the hanna gem that provides the rdoc template needs to use a html output formatter, which seems to have disappeared from newer versions of rdoc.
As a solution, I’ve switched to the sdoc gem, which I think has a better rdoc template than hanna.

The full install instructions for my offline gem documentation server are:
