Rails Docs?


#1

Hello again,

Where are the HTML based Rails docs? My OS X Tiger Unix prompt tells
me that Rails is installed under:

/usr/local/

but I can’t find any of the docs anywhere?

Sincere regards,

Unnsse

Typically in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/doc/*. Also online at http://
api.rubyonrails.com/

James and Steve… Thanks for the response!

If you are on OSX/Tiger, the rdoc widget is quite convenient …

Untz-

Also a great way to see the installed docs for gems that you have

installed is to run this command:

$ gem_server

That will start a webrick server on port 8808 so after you run that

command go to your web browser and go to this address:

http://localhost:8808

All of your gems that have docs will be listed and browseable right

there for you.

Cheers-

The docs are actually in /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/docs, but you’ll
probably want to serve them up locally using the ‘gem_server’ command.
