Today I did a walk-through for a workshop I’ll be helping out at, going through the process of setting up a Jekyll blog (memories!).
Turns out my version of Ruby was pretty out of date! I used the Ruby environment manager
rvm to update, but got a pretty nasty warning at the start:

I went ahead with the installation:
$ rvm install ruby-2.5.1
After the installation I set the new version to be the default with
rvm use default 2.5.1. But I was still getting rvm warnings so I tried resetting the
.bash_profile settings with
rvm get stable --auto-dotfiles as per the warning instructions. This added the following line to my
Well shocker, that was already there! And I was still getting a warning. Hmmm…
StackOverflow to the rescue: I just needed to run
rvm reset and the warnings went away. Nice!
$ rvm -v
Didn’t write on the day but I went to another fun meetup the other night and spoke to quite a few people. Literally did not open my laptop once though 😂
STILL working on those websites.
