Just wanted to thank you for Ruby on Mac even though (or maybe especially since) I am not an engineer. I have not been able to run my portfolio site locally (Jekyll) since we bought an M1 Mac a long, long time ago. Parsing how to figure out wtf was not working and blindly copy/pasting commands into Terminal worked about as well as you expected, but I just purchased Ruby on Mac earlier today and for the first time was able to run my site locally again.

I ran Ruby on Mac and it worked great! It fixed all my stuff immediately.

I know just enough about using the Terminal to be dangerous, and Ruby on Mac has already gotten me out of that danger more times than I can count. I don't understand how Ruby on Mac does what it does, but I am insanely grateful that it does it. Over the past few months, Ruby on Mac has become the utility that does the most regarding something I understand the least.

In a world where BMW owners are gonna pay to have heated seats and heated steering wheels, this was money well spent for me, and I love an app like this.

I spent around 3 days trying to solve dependencies and version issues mixed with an M1 mac chip while working on a Rails app. I looked and tried and retried so many possible solutions from so many sources on the web... but nothing was working. Then I clicked on the logo menu of one of the numerous blog posts I read, and I saw exactly the words I was looking for: "Goodbye gem and Ruby installation issues. Hello Ruby on Mac."

At first I thought it was too good to be true, but after a background check, I decided to go for it. And man it worked so well I am ready to dive into my app development again. Thank you again!

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!

“The script worked like a charm, and solved my problems. Thank you very much. All previous methods for installing Jekyll on a Mac M1 didn’t work for me.

Vincenzo Galdi

“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

“Just a quick note to say thanks! Struggled for a day trying to get the Flutter development stack to work, which has dependency on cocoapods -> ruby which i have absolutely no interest in, but was causing builds to an iOS app to fail.

Your script worked as advertised and 15 minutes later i was deploying to iOS devices.

Background: While working on a Flutter app i introduced a package flutter_webview that apparently requires cocoapods to install dependencies, ran into errors that led me (eventually) to your website. On a 2020 M1 Macbook Pro on MacOS Monterey 12.6.

Robin Puthli

“I remember that 3 years ago on my old Mac it took me almost two days to install Ruby so even though I find your script a bit expensive my time is even more valuable so I went for it. ”
