Ruby and Jekyll — A new journey part 1

Lately I’ve been learning a lot about a new stack — Ruby, Node.js, Python, and Jekyll… and I wanted to share a few tips on how I got my system ready for development. For this specific environment I’m using OS X. Here is my installation log — step-by-step:

1. Homebrew (OS X) — http://brew.sh/

To verify version, check installation status, or update — respectively:

Run:

Homebrew command library (package): BrewFormulas.org

2. Ruby — https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/

Install RubyGems

Download the gem file at:

https://rubygems.org/rubygems/rubygems-update-2.5.2.gem

Install Imagemagick

3. Node.js — https://nodejs.org/en/

Display node version, and display npm version — respectively:

4. Python — https://www.python.org/

5. Jekyll — https://jekyllrb.com/

 

Build and Serve website:

Navigate to http://127.0.0.1:4000/

On Part 2 I will talk about how to build a simple website/application/blog using Ruby and Jekyll. Cheers!
