Include local rdoc with gems

Reported by Jonathan Stott (namelessjon) | May 27th, 2008 @ 05:51 PM

The 0.9.0 series of gems seems to install no local rdoc.

This makes working with the gems whilst offline rather more difficult than it should be. I quite often run a local gemserver just for looking at the docs, and I quite frequently code without net access (on the train, usually) so a lack of documentation 'to hand' is a problem.

    Right, we use YARD docs. I'll talk to the Merb guys and see how they handle this little hiccup.

    argv/lsegal is working on a very awesome branch of YARD which changes up the yard api some

    you could say he's doing some "yard work"...har har

    anyway, one of the things he's done is improve the look and feel of the output documentation. I've tried running this branch against dm-core, but to no avail.

    Will follow up with him on it, though

    • Tag set to documentation, suggestion

    Jon, is this still a problem? I think the normal rake install process bypasses installing docs just due to speed concerns, however I would have no problem if when the gem is being built if it creates and bundles the docs with it.

    A quick survey of the gems server on my lab PC suggests that some of them do. I'm sure my PC at home was different, but that might have had an edge install.

    Still, I will work through the others and make sure they do too.

    Some of the ones that do have rdoc have almost no useful docs contained therein, so I'll see if something quick can be done about that, too.

    All dm-more gems now appear to correctly generate rdoc successfully.

    As previously noted, some work needs to be done on making this more useful, but it is at least there.
