Hello, I have recently installed Jekyll on my (Intel) Mac, and was following these instructions: Jekyll on macOS | Jekyll • Simple, blog-aware, static sites
Note: I installed Xcode and its command line tools first, since a couple other sources made it seem like I should do that as well…
But following the instructions linked above, I installed the latest stable version of Ruby. And when I do
ruby -v, it shows as ruby 3.1.2p20 (as per the instructions).
So far so good, but now things get confusing because of the existing Ruby version on my Mac…
So I followed the commands to configure my (zsh) shell to automatically use chruby, as follows:
echo "source $(brew --prefix)/opt/chruby/share/chruby/chruby.sh" >> ~/.zshrc
echo "source $(brew --prefix)/opt/chruby/share/chruby/auto.sh" >> ~/.zshrc
echo "chruby ruby-3.1.2" >> ~/.zshrc
I then proceeded to install Jekyll, and that appeared to work just fine. However, when I do
brew config, one of the outputted lines is:
Homebrew Ruby: 2.6.10 => /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.6/usr/bin/ruby
Which makes it seem I have the older version of Ruby selected here, and I’m not sure if that’s the one I want?
Also, when I run
brew doctor, it says my Git version is old (2.10.1) and I should upgrade it. So I did with their command (
brew upgrade git), and now when I run that command again it says that git 2.38.1 is installed. However, when I run
git --version, it still says version 2.10.1. So that is a contradiction that I can’t figure out how to solve …
So basically I just need some help to finish this off, so everything is correct and I know for sure which Ruby version I should be using and how to select that version.
Thanks for your help,
