Installing Jekyll on OS X

  • Install Xcode

  • Run Xcode, go to Preferences

    • Sign-in under ‚ÄúAccounts‚ÄĚ
    • Tab over to ‚ÄúDownloads‚ÄĚ and click the teeny arrow for ‚ÄúCommand
      Line Tools‚ÄĚ
  • Once installed, install Homebrew

    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)"
    
  • Then install the Ruby Version Manager[^1]

    curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
    
  • Source the RVM:

    source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm
    
  • Install Jekyll

    gem install jekyll
    
  • Test. I did it by running jekyll serve from a
    Bootstrap download^2.

this to work (and then changed it back)
