Overview

ruby-stack-v01-300x213-11679.jpg The major commands around Ruby:

  1. ruby
  2. gem
  3. bundle
  4. rbenv version manager or
  5. rvm version manager

PROTIP: There is a war going on within the Ruby community between rvm and rbenv. See http://jonathan-jackson.net/rvm-and-rbenv and Ryan McGeary who switched to rbenv.

Versions

View Ruby version

A Ruby language compiler is included in Mac OSX. So we can jump straight to view version information.

CAUTION: Don’t touch the system Ruby that comes with your Mac.

  1. Open a Terminal Shell Window and type:

    ruby --version

    Alternately:

    
    ruby --version
    

    The response for the High Sierra default:

    ruby 2.3.7p456 (2018-03-28 revision 63024) [universal.x86_64-darwin17]

ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [x86_64-darwin17] </tt>

The response for the Sierra default:

ruby 2.3.0p0 (2015-12-25 revision 53290) [x86_64-darwin15]

The response for the Yosemite default:

ruby 2.0.0p481 (2014-05-08 revision 45883) [universal.x86_64-darwin14]

The response after updating on 2016-06-16:

ruby 2.3.1p112 (2016-04-26 revision 54768) [x86_64-darwin15]

CAUTION: The Apple Mac operating system makes use of Ruby, so don’t delete the .rvm folder.

  1. This should return “hey”:

    ruby -e "puts 'hey'"
    

    PROTIP: The ruby command by itself will not return anything … forever.

    Gem version numbers

  2. You don’t really need to do the above because this more detailed command provides it as well:

    gem env

    The response on 2016-06-16:

Install rbenv

CAUTION: To install rbenv, one must first remove RVM because it’s incompatible with rbenv.


   brew update
   brew install rbenv ruby-build
   

The response:

==> Caveats
A CA file has been bootstrapped using certificates from the SystemRoots
keychain. To add additional certificates (e.g. the certificates added in
the System keychain), place .pem files in
  /usr/local/etc/openssl/certs
 
and run
  /usr/local/opt/openssl/bin/c_rehash
 
This formula is keg-only, which means it was not symlinked into /usr/local.
 
Apple has deprecated use of OpenSSL in favor of its own TLS and crypto libraries
 
If you need to have this software first in your PATH run:
  echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/openssl/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile
 
For compilers to find this software you may need to set:
    LDFLAGS:  -L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib
    CPPFLAGS: -I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include
For pkg-config to find this software you may need to set:
    PKG_CONFIG_PATH: /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/pkgconfig

  1. What versions of Ruby are available? See https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/releases/

  2. To upgrade Ruby using rbenv:

    
    rbenv install 2.6.1
    

    The response when 2.6.1 was all the rage:

    ruby-build: use openssl from homebrew
    Downloading ruby-2.6.1.tar.bz2...
    -> https://cache.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/2.6/ruby-2.6.1.tar.bz2
    Installing ruby-2.6.1...
    ruby-build: use readline from homebrew
    Installed ruby-2.6.1 to /Users/wilsonmar/.rbenv/versions/2.6.1
    
  3. Make that version the default globally:

    
    rbenv global 2.6.1
    ruby -v
    

    The response I got:

    ruby 2.6.1p33 (2019-01-30 revision 66950) [x86_64-darwin18]   

    Uninstall rbenv

  4. To uninstall, remember rbenv was installed using brew, so:

    
    brew uninstall rbenv ruby-build
    

Install to /usr/local/bin

“You don’t have write permissions into the /usr/bin directory.” is returned because that directory requires root credentials.

This is why Homebrew installs into the /usr/local/bin folder.

To specify that folder when installing gems, for example:

gem install cocoapods -n /usr/local/bin

To automatically specify -n /usr/local/bin, save create file ~/.gemrc containing:

:gemdir:
   - ~/.gem/ruby
install: -n /usr/local/bin

    Uninstall Ruby

  9. Uninstall all versions of Ruby:

    rvm uninstall ruby

  10. Have the rvm shell configuration loaded:

    source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm
    type rvm | head -n 1

    Alternately, wipe out the folder and start over:

    rm -rf ~/.rvm
    curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable

    The response should be:

    rvm is a function

    If so, try rvm get head again.

    rvm get head

    If the response is:

    -bash: rvm: command not found
    
  11. Get stable

    rvm get stable --auto-dotfiles
    

To upgrade Ruby using RVM

  1. First run:

    rvm autolibs homebrew

  2. Run:

  4. To install the latest stable rvm release:

    curl -ssL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable

    Installing RVM to /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm/
    Adding rvm PATH line to /Users/wilsonmar/.profile /Users/wilsonmar/.mkshrc /Users/wilsonmar/.bashrc /Users/wilsonmar/.zshrc.
    Adding rvm loading line to /Users/wilsonmar/.profile /Users/wilsonmar/.bash_profile /Users/wilsonmar/.zlogin.
    Installation of RVM in /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm/ is almost complete:
     
           * To start using RVM you need to run `source /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm/scripts/rvm`
    in all your open shell windows, in rare cases you need to reopen all shell windows.
     
    # Wilson Mar,
    #
    #   Thank you for using RVM!
    #   We sincerely hope that RVM helps to make your life easier and more enjoyable!!!

           * WARNING: You have '~/.profile' file, you might want to load it,
    to do that add the following line to '/Users/wilsonmar/.bash_profile':
     
    source ~/.profile
    
  5. Some say at this point close the terminal and open again.

Sample Ruby Tree program

Here is a Ruby script to produce a nice Unicode tree along with metadata to its left:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
def tree_hierarchy( root, &children )
  queue = [[root,"",true]]
  [].tap do |results|
    until queue.empty?
      item,indent,last = queue.pop
      kids = children[item]
      extra = indent.empty? ? '' : last ? '└╴' : '├╴'
      results << [ indent+extra, item ]
      results << [ indent, nil ] if last and kids.empty?
      indent += last ? '  ' : '│ '
      parts = kids.map{ |k| [k,indent,false] }.reverse
      parts.first[2] = true unless parts.empty?
      queue.concat parts
    end
  end
end
def tree(dir)
  cols = tree_hierarchy(File.expand_path(dir)) do |d|
    File.directory?(d) ? Dir.chdir(d){ Dir['*'].map(&File.method(:expand_path)) } : []
  end.map do |indent,path|
    if path
      file = File.basename(path) + File.directory?(path) ? '/' : ''
      meta = `ls -lhd "#{path}"`.split(/\s+/)
      [ [indent,file].join, meta[0], meta[4], "%s %-2s %s" % meta[5..7] ]
    else
      [indent]
    end
  end
  maxs = cols.first.zip(*(cols[1..-1])).map{ |c| c.compact.map(&:length).max }
  tmpl = maxs.map.with_index{ |n,i| "%#{'-' if cols[0][i][/^\D/]}#{n}s" }.join('  ')
  cols.map{ |a| a.length==1 ? a.first : tmpl % a }
end
puts tree(ARGV.first || ".") if __FILE__==$0
   
  1. Copy and paste the above into a text editor program.
  2. Save the file named tree.rb.
  3. In a Terminal window, navigate to the folder holding the script.
  4. Mark the file as executable:

    chmod +x tree.rb

    This only needs to be done once.

  5. Run the program:

    tree.rb

    ERROR: The response:

    ./tree.rb:24:in `+': no implicit conversion of true into String (TypeError)
      from ./tree.rb:24:in `block in tree'
      from ./tree.rb:22:in `map'

Remove rvm

  1. Run the program which removes the rvm/ directory and all the rubies built within it:

    
    rvm repair
    rvm cleanup
    rvm implode --force
    
    Are you SURE you wish for rvm to implode?
    This will recursively remove /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm and other rvm traces?
    (anything other than 'yes' will cancel) > yes
    Removing rvm-shipped binaries (rvm-prompt, rvm, rvm-sudo rvm-shell and rvm-auto-ruby)
    Removing rvm wrappers in /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm/bin
    Hai! Removing /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm
    /Users/wilsonmar/.rvm has been removed.
     
    Note you may need to manually remove /etc/rvmrc and ~/.rvmrc if they exist still.
    Please check all .bashrc .bash_profile .profile and .zshrc for RVM source lines and delete or comment out if this was a Per-User installation.
    Also make sure to remove `rvm` group if this was a system installation.
    Finally it might help to relogin / restart if you want to have fresh environment (like for installing RVM again).
    
  2. Remove folders:

    rm -rf /usr/local/rvm
    sudo rm /etc/profile.d/rvm.sh
    sudo rm /etc/rvmrc
    sudo rm ~/.rvmrc
    
  3. Check references to rvm in files (replace vim with your favorite text editor command such as subl, code, etc.):

    vim ~/.bash_profile

    vim ~/.bashrc

    vim ~/.profile

  4. Restart Terminal sessions.

Ruby apps on Mac

The programs I’ve figured out how to install using my bash script:

  • istats
  • gitlab (command line utilities)
  • ruby-jmeter
  • travis
  • rails
  • rust (language)
