Installing Jekyll in Ubuntu

| Comments

There’s more than one way to skin a cat, but this was easy and quick. My project builds and serves. I last did this about 3 years ago, and used rvm, I think. That may be a better way – YMMV. Using Ubuntu 18.04.

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get install ruby
  3. sudo apt-get install ruby-dev
  4. sudo gem install bundler
  5. sudo gem install jekyll
  6. Move to the project directory
  7. bundle update
  8. bundle install
  9. bundle exec jekyll s

Step 3 will save you tears. Bonus: The (large) project I was working on builds in 45s; it normally takes 120s+ on OS X. It’s under 3s with an --incremental build switch 😁
