Get a working Ruby setup for free with one command

Hi! Have you been struggling to install Rails, Jekyll, Bundler, or some other Ruby gem? Have you been typing a bunch of commands, and trying to fix error after error? Were you almost on the verge of giving up on learning Rails after repeated failed attempts to install it?

I'm glad you found me! I wrote a script for you that will set up a complete Ruby development environment on your Mac with all the tools necessary to install any Ruby gem, and to create Rails apps and Jekyll sites.

To get my script, subscribe to my free newsletter below. I want to make your coding journey as pleasant as possible, through my scripts, and sharing the things I learned the long way over 20+ years of web development.

What people say about the Ruby script

I can't thank you enough for this. The only resource that I have found to help this coding newbie. - Kathryn Hough

Thank you for writing and posting your script

After messing around trying to do something as simple as installing "asciidoctor" and being told that I lacked the "permissions" to do so (even using sudo or running as root ...)

I felt that I did need a way to escape Apple's "invisible hand" and your thinking on the matter – automated scripts and local directory – persuaded me to give your script a whirl.

Moncef ... watching your script run was a treat ... especially the "All done!" bit ... and the fact that asciidoctor is now operational.

Thanks again,

Shawn

A whole day spent trying to diagnose "mkmf.rb can’t find header files for ruby at /usr/lib/ruby/include/ruby.h", "Permission denied @ dirsmkdir - /Library/Ruby/Gems", take ownership of the /System/Library folder, reset ruby to a blank state, restore with time machine, and finally wipe ruby from my Mac altogether, and I finally come across a solution
