Install Gems Without Documentation By Default

Posted by Weston Ganger on October 31, 2015

When installing gems, one of the things that make it take longer is to install is the documentation. I don’t even know who uses local documentation any more anyway’s but its not me. Here’s how to make no documentation the default when installing.

Create or edit ~/.gemrc and add the following line:

# ~/.gemrc

gem: --no-document

Done, no more slow gem installs because of useless local documentation
