Topic: Wierdness with RubyOnRails.org?

Tried to hit the official API section of RubyOnRails.org and was greeted (consistently) with an annoying traffic ad.

Did the domain get hijacked or anything?

DHH posted on twitter today that his domain registrar had buggered up and parked the domain. He was in the process of trying to get it rectified.

Thanks for the fast response!

Don't follow DHH's Twitter feed, so didn't catch word.

Re: Wierdness with RubyOnRails.org?

Anybody got any idea how long before the site is up again? Or is there some other good place to get the documentation as from api.rubyonrails.org?

Thanks.

Either run 'gem server' on your local machine or try apidock

Re: Wierdness with RubyOnRails.org?

Just a heads up, it appears that the API docs on http://gotapi.com/rubyrails and http://guides.rails.info both link back to http://rubyonrails.org, so they're not useful right now.

However, http://www.apidock.com is not only working, it's so well done that it might become my default.  Thanks for the link!

Re: Wierdness with RubyOnRails.org?

http://rubyonrails.org/ seems to be back up.

Thanks all smile

For those that need docs in the future, http://www.railsbrain.com and http://www.rubybrain.com are excellent, and can be downloaded onto your computer.
