New to Ruby Rails


I am thinking of pursuing to study RoR, so I started with downloading
and installing NetBeans 6.1 and it seems to
be a good IDE to start diving into Ruby. However, since I dont have
an Internet connection at home I am a bit lost
when it comes to installing Gems, is there a way for me to download
Gems offline and install it in my home machine



You can download the gems from the . You

must download the .gem file. Place that gem in your drive.Go to that
path in the command prompt.Install it from offline.

Ex :- I have downloaded one gem and copied it into my c drive

 C:\ gem install  <gem file name here>

Hope this helpful 2 u.

I am behind a firewall and hence not able to install the gems.

Where I can I download the json gem so that I can install it offline?
