This package currently doesn't work because the included gemspec does not allow more recent versions of ruby-http_parser.rb. This is just Ruby being overly cautious, and it actually works fine. I've created a PKGBUILD that repackages the gem from source without the restriction and tested it with jekyll. Would you consider using that instead?

# Maintainer: Shengyu Zhang <>

pkgdesc='EventMachine based WebSocket server'

prepare() {
  cd ${_gemname}-${pkgver}
  sed -r 's|~>|>=|g' -i ${_gemname}.gemspec # don't give a fuck about rubys bla bla
  sed 's|git ls-files|find -type f\|sed "s,\\\\./,,g"|' -i ${_gemname}.gemspec
  # test_files and executables use black magic, but we don't need them
  sed '/test_files/d' -i ${_gemname}.gemspec
  sed '/executables/d' -i ${_gemname}.gemspec

build() {
  cd ${_gemname}-${pkgver}
  gem build ${_gemname}.gemspec

package() {
  cd ${_gemname}-${pkgver}
  local _gemdir="$(ruby -e'puts Gem.default_dir')"
  gem install --ignore-dependencies --no-user-install -i "$pkgdir/$_gemdir" -n "$pkgdir/usr/bin" $_gemname-$pkgver.gem
  rm "$pkgdir/$_gemdir/cache/$_gemname-$pkgver.gem"
  install -D -m644 LICENCE "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"

As an added bonus, it does not need the LICENSE file to be in the aur repo anymore as it's present in the source.

@bertptrs, @lillemets thanks for reporting. It seems that the upstream named the LICENSE file as "LICENCE" so it wasn't packed in to gem. Fixed.

The PKGBUILD attempts to install a LICENSE file from the gem, however, the gem does not contain a LICENSE file. Instead, you should package the LICENSE in the AUR and copy it from there.

There seems to be a mistake in the install script causing the package build to fail. Note the double slash below.

install: cannot stat '/home/jrl/.cache/pacaur/ruby-em-websocket/pkg/ruby-em-websocket//usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.5.0/gems/em-websocket-0.5.1/LICENSE': No such file or directory
