Error Installing Jekyll...The 'http_parser.rb' native gem requires installed build tools


#1

I’m following these instructions:Jekyll on Windows

Everything went well except I get the following message:

ERROR: Error installing jekyll:
** The ‘http_parser.rb’ native gem requires installed build tools.**

Even with this message it seems that Jekyll installed because when I ran the cmd: jekyll -v I get a response of: jekyll 3.5.1

So I assume all went well and I can ignore the error mentioned above?

Right?

did you try it and see if it works? Jekyll requires lots of gems and those gems require other gems sometimes.

I can’t remember if I had to install the build tools or not. I just did the ruby installer that matched my OS I think (Win 10).
