[Caveat: I am a novice Terminal user and this is my first experience with a command line procedure for installing software (which may be at least half of my problem, I know).]
In an effort to install and use Jekyll on my system, I have studied the Jekyll website and watched the video tutorials by Mike Dane. I understand the process, but after attempting to perform the scripted Terminal commands described in these resources, I get multiple errors and seem to be going in circles.
I have followed the instructions to install Jekyll on MacOS very carefully—several times. I can verify that Ruby is installed, but cannot verify that Jekyll is installed. Here is what I get:
ruby -v ruby 2.6.3p62 (2019-04-16 revision 67580) [universal.x86_64-darwin19] jekyll -v -bash: jekyll: command not found
Strangely, when I enter
as is specified in the installation instructions, I then am able to run
jekyll -v jekyll 4.0.0
However, when trying to execute commands from Jekyll to publish the site, things go south. When trying to serve up the site to my local host, I get:
bundle exec jekyll serve Could not locate Gemfile or .bundle/ directory
Also, when I close out my Terminal window and reopen it, it will not verify that Jekyll is downloaded until I run
So, needless to say, I’m stuck in a rut here and could use some help with my specific issues. It would be greatly appreciated.
