Although I’m not a Ruby developer, I encounter Ruby in many places as a user. This page collects some notes on using Ruby on Mac OS X.
Mac OS X comes with Ruby installed. The stock setup … is annoying to say the least, so the steps below install the latest version in a user-based virtual environment.
$ brew install rbenv ruby-build rbenv-gemset rbenv-vars ... $ rbenv init ... $ curl -fsSL https://github.com/rbenv/rbenv-installer/raw/main/bin/rbenv-doctor | bash ... $ rbenv install 3.0.2 ... $ rbenv global 3.0.2
export RUBY_CONFIGURE_OPTS="--with-openssl-dir=$(brew --prefix firstname.lastname@example.org)" eval "$(rbenv init -)"
