Skiping installation of ri and RDoc documentation while installing gems

Published on Author Akhil Bansal24 Comments

Probably most of the time you would like to skip ri and RDoc installation while installing some new gems, specially on production server.

I do like to skip ri and RDoc documentation while installing gems on my development machine, because it takes more time to generate ri and RDoc then actual installation of gem.

We can skip rdoc and ri documentation while installing a gem by:

gem install rails --no-ri --no-rdoc

I am sure that you would not like to give –no-ri and –no-rdoc every time you install a gem. To avoid this situation, you can create/update $HOME/.gemrc file with following option:

gem: --no-ri --no-rdoc

Now every time you install a gem, it will skip installation of ri and RDoc for the gem.

My .gemrc file looks like:

:update_sources: true
:benchmark: false
:bulk_threshold: 1000
:backtrace: false
:verbose: true
gem: --no-ri --no-rdoc

  1. @Abhishek: It depends person to person, I don’t use “gem server”. Infact, I just used it once or twice. So why should I wait for ri and rdoc installation, even I don’t use them.

  2. You’d want to do this on a production server for example a cloud based system as you’re starting from scratch you want gem install to be as quick as possible. This is a great solution in combination with config.gem and rake gems:install. Thanks!

    monde racourci ça en bypass, ce qui revient à peu de
    choses près à la même chose, du moins au même résultat, ce sont juste les
    techniques qui changent et surtout le fait que le mini bypass est réversible alors que le bypass
    tout court ne l’est pas.
