Install Homebrew and Rvm
OSX doesn’t have a good package manager like linux with aptitude. We can get practically the same with HomeBrew and RVM. We gonna start with HomeBrew
HomeBrew is a package manager for OSX. Brew install missing stuff so easy…
Exemple : We need wget… wait … no wget on OSX… Crap!
$ brew install wget
All package on brew are simple ruby scripts, you can make your own ! But… How to install this awesome things :
$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)"
brew doctor to scan your system, you will be warn if brew dectect incorrect package, missing link or version problem.
Now you can manage package like a boss !
RVM (for Ruby and Rails)
It’s also simple to install RVM (it can take several time)
$ \curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --rails --autolibs=enable
When process is done you need to restart your terminal.
type to see if RVM is ok.
$ type rvm | head -1
If you see
rvm is a function you’re done with it.
If you get other thing :
$ rvm -v # rvm 1.19.6 or higher $ ruby -v # ruby 2.0.0p0 or higher $ rails -v # rails 3.2.13 or higher
If you get an error on rails try to
sudo gem install rails and rerun
If you get an error againnnn, try :
$ rvm list # You get the list of ruby version $ rvm use 2.0.0 # If you get an error here, like : RVM is not a function, selecting rubies with BlablBlblAblAbla
Add to your bashrc or zshrc
[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" # Load RVM into a shell session *as a function*
After that run
brew doctor to be sure.
