Rubygems mirror

If you’re a RubyGems user, you can’t have missed how slow it is, even with the new mirroring system.

To speed it up a bit for me, I setup a mirror. You’re free to use it for your own needs if you find it speedier, here’s the URLs :


To use it only for a particular gem use :

gem install --source your_gem_name

To set it as the default for your gems add the next line to your ~/.gemrc :

gem: --source

    Thanks for this post and the mirror. I was getting really frustrated with the main site not delivering me the whole yaml file.

    Yeah, thanks. Would be nice to know exactly how you created the mirror, though. Then I could stop using yours!
