I contact you about gem documentation. We're using a bit of metaprogramming to dynamically define methods for elements and use custom YARD handler to make sure they are documented.

It works perfectly locally or on self-hosted documentation (e.g. see "Instance Method Summary" on, but it doesn't work on (compare to

We have set up to make sure handler is always used, but no luck.

Please, let me know if this can be achieved.

    Unfortunately we disable plugins on for security reasons. If you want custom code to be executed you'll have to package it up as a YARD plugin so that we can explicitly gem install it on the server (after reviewing the code).

    You can also take a look at seeing if macros can solve your problems so that you don't have to resort to custom handlers.

    Hope that helps!
