Budget Option

If you can't afford the main versions of Ruby on Mac, you can get the basic script-only version that does not include the troubleshooting guide. You'll have to figure out issues on your own. It is only guaranteed to work on a clean macOS installation. It is not guaranteed to continue working in the future, and it does not include free updates.

As a developer I felt like I should know how to setup and configure everything. I spent 10-15 hours trying to get things to work before buying Ruby on Mac.

I ran the script, sat back, and watched everything I was trying to do happen automatically! It was a relief to see "script ran successfully" at the end of everything!

Buy Ruby on Mac and get back to doing something of value instead of banging your head against a wall.

Ameesh Kapoor / Head of Engineering, 412 Food Rescue

I found Ruby on Mac by searching everywhere for advice on how to fix Ruby on my Mac (which is only six months old, which you’d think wouldn’t be enough time for the Ruby and Jekyll installations to get as messed up as they evidently were—especially since I haven’t used Ruby for anything else—but I was wrong).

I didn’t have high expectations, but I was very pleased to see that it worked perfectly. I thought the price was too high; my company isn’t paying for this and I’m pretty much retired. The only reason I needed to get Ruby to work was so I could try to get Jekyll to work, and that wasn’t a sure thing, so there was a good chance it would be more money thrown away. But I was wrong and Ruby on Mac really is a good product.

Thanks again for a fine product, which (you were right) is well worth the price!

John DeTreville / Retired Computer Science Researcher

While I don't run into problems with my ruby environment often, every time I do, getting out of the hole I've dug for myself is slow and frustrating. I'd been trying to fix an issue and clearly made things worse before they were getting better. I spent probably more than an hour before I realized I wanted to clean up the mess and start "fresh".

Ruby on Mac had me back to a clean starting point within 15 minutes and the confidence to move forward again. The documentation and troubleshooting were some of the best I've ever seen for a very technical product. Impressed!

“Your script flawlessly installed Ruby 2.7.2, bundler, rails, sassc 2.4.0, and jekyll! You have truly earned the title of wizard, at least in my book! In my view you are unique in (a) providing an automated script that actually works; and (b), more importantly, in filling what is in my experience a complete vacuum in support from the Jekyll site itself.”

Martin Roberts

“Thanks for the script, it really helped me get started with a lot of ease and minus the nightmares I faced for about 3 days trying to get it all up and running!”

Cass Amino

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for this script!! It’s just worked wonders getting Jekyll up and running on my new Apple M1 MacBook, after I’ve spent 2 days scratching my head trying to get everything setup.”

Hamish Gray

“You (and your wonderful script) saved me from great peril today. I had developed my first Jekyll site some months ago. And I am now in the middle of developing a site using Eleventy. Earlier today, I went back to my Jekyll site to make sure that I could still build it as I had some updates to make. Sadly, the site failed to build with the horrendous "ffi" error that is going around. After numerous ill-fated attempts to get it working, trying every workaround that I could find, I ultimately came across your script. While it does take some time to get through it, I have to say that it has worked wonderfully! My site builds once again and I feel like the ruby platform that your script placed on my system is far less fragile than before. Thank you again for the great script and your service to the community. ”

Bob Monsour

“YES, the script worked, thank you so much for your work. I stumbled upon it because somehow my gems didn’t work anymore and my dev setup has been a mess since forever, and it was great to get it running as a fresh start. ”

Christoph Rauscher

“thank you thank you thank you - I've spent days trying to sort this out and you have definitely come to my rescue.”

Ian Dodd

“The script was such a life saver. I was having problems for the last year getting a Flutter project to run on my regular laptop and ended up having to build it on my desktop instead this whole time. Finally got it working on my laptop too using your script after literally one year! ”

Nicole Manson

“You are a lifesaver, I was struggling with installing rails on my m1 MBP and your script saved all the hassle. Clear cut instructions and all steps noted very well. I have become a fan.”
