Ruby Reference


#1

Hello all,

What Ruby reference is everybodies favorite? When I’ve been looking
around
for documentation I haven’t found any that quite compares to php.net’s
and
cppreference.com’s function references. I’ve been using the one found
on
rubycentral, but I think that it is missing quite a bit and doesn’t have
very good examples. ri is fine, but can be a pain in the butt to
navigate
around. If there aren’t any really good ones out there would people be
willing to contribute classes, methods and examples if I were to build
one?

http://www.ruby-doc.org/core and /stdlib. It’s patchy in places, but
it’s a good aide memoire.

ri -l | grep helps, especially if you’re running Rubygems from CVS
and ruby from CVS’ 1.8 branch.

There’s also the quickref in addition to the other stuff mentioned:

I’ve been using gotAPI.com recently. It’s a wrapper over the
ruby-doc.org site but also has wrappers for many other technologies
(HTML, CSS, Javascript, and many more). Very handy.
