used it on my macbook for a while, but things just keep breaking (jekyll vs osx :sleepy:).
I now have a dedicated dev debian vm

Ouch. Curious, when you were using it on your Mac, were you using the system Ruby installation?

nope, one from homebrew
ruby 2.6.1p33 (2019-01-30 revision 66950) [x86_64-darwin18]

Ah okay. Not sure why it wasn’t working then. If you wanted to go lighter weight than a VM though, there’s always Docker. The Docs Team at CircleCI uses Docker Compose for local Jekyll development. Allows me not to have Ruby and tons of Gems installed on my actual machine.

yeah I have docker debian container I use sometimes.
But I have an entire datacentre full of hypervisors, so having a dev machine isn’t a biggie :slight_smile:

I run all my Jekyll instances regardless of the environment (dev, staging or production) always in Docker containers, helps with dependencies, different versions, naughty experiments and tremendously useful to gracefully move workloads on an instant between a pool of workers at staticpages.io.

Cheers! :beers:
