How to Install Jekyll on Fedora

How to Install Jekyll on Fedora

The RVM installation process for Ruby and Jekyll on Fedora. Ruby Version Manager (RVM) is a command-line tool for setting up, managing, and using multiple ruby environments. A variety of Ruby installation issues can be resolved by using this method.

Installing Ruby using RVM

Install the GPG keys that will be needed to verify the installation package:

gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 7D2BAF1CF37B13E2069D6956105BD0E739499BDB

Install RVM stable with ruby in one command:

\curl -sSL | bash -s stable --ruby

Setting up RVM with GNOME Terminal

The ‘Run command as a login shell’ checkbox must be selected for RVM to work properly. See:

Enable 'Run command as a login shell'

This command adds source $HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm into .bash_profile, so we won’t have to manually type it in every session:

echo "source $HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" >> ~/.bash_profile

After that, restart gnome-terminal.

Installing Jekyll and Bundler

Jekyll is a free and open-source static site generator written in Ruby:

rvm use default
gem install jekyll bundler

That’s it! We can now create and test a new Jekyll site locally.
