Jekyll new Failing on Mac

Hi All:

I’m having trouble running the basic Quick Start instructions. I install bundler and jekyll and try to run jekyll new my-blog, but it gives and error. Here is the full output:

$ gem install jekyll bundler
Successfully installed jekyll-3.4.3
Parsing documentation for jekyll-3.4.3
Done installing documentation for jekyll after 1 seconds
Successfully installed bundler-1.14.6
Parsing documentation for bundler-1.14.6
Done installing documentation for bundler after 4 seconds
2 gems installed
$ jekyll new my-blog
Dependency Error: Yikes! It looks like you don't have bundler or one of its dependencies installed. In order to use Jekyll as currently configured, you'll need to install this gem. The full error message from Ruby is: 'cannot load such file -- bundler' If you run into trouble, you can find helpful resources at! 
jekyll 3.4.3 | Error:  bundler
Jonathans-MacBook-Pro:test-blog jduckwor$ 

Here is my Ruby version, managed via rbenv:

$ ruby --version
ruby 2.2.2p95 (2015-04-13 revision 50295) [x86_64-darwin14]

Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?

Thanks very much,


i can’t help much - using a pc, but did you read the troubleshooting stuff? there is a fair bit about macs.

plus it seems I have read posts like yours before on here, though maybe not since this site rebooted a couple months ago and lost its old content.


gem install bundler

Thanks @rdyar, I had skimmed the troubleshooting before but somehow missed
the gem update --system suggestion. That ended up being the thing that
fixed it.
