Install Ruby and other prerequisites:
sudo apt-get install ruby-full build-essential zlib1g-dev
Avoid installing RubyGems packages (called gems) as the root user. Instead, set up a gem installation directory for your user account. The following commands will add environment variables to your
~/.bashrc file to configure the gem installation path:
echo '# Install Ruby Gems to ~/gems' >> ~/.bashrc echo 'export GEM_HOME="$HOME/gems"' >> ~/.bashrc echo 'export PATH="$HOME/gems/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc
Finally, install Jekyll and Bundler:
gem install jekyll bundler
That’s it! You’re ready to start using Jekyll.
