OS X 10.10 Guide
Here's what I did to get things working.
1. Install Xcode 6
Yep, over at: https://developer.apple.com
2. Install the Command Line Tools (CLT)
3. Install Homebrew
Copy/pasted from the site:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"
4. Update the
/usr/local/bin/brew with your favorite editor.
I had to comment out the brew system detection, so that the last 6-7 lines looked like this:
#BREW_SYSTEM=$(uname -s | tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]") #if [ "$BREW_SYSTEM" = "darwin" ] #then # exec "$BREW_LIBRARY_DIRECTORY/brew.rb" "$@" #else exec ruby -W0 "$BREW_LIBRARY_DIRECTORY/brew.rb" "$@" #fi
5. Point Ruby 1.8 at Ruby 2.0
It looks like Homebrew somehow depends on Ruby being in
Versions/1.8 (though even Mavericks ships with 2.0). Until Homebrew addresses this, we'll symlink our system version of Ruby to the one Homebrew looks for.
Create the folder:
sudo mkdir -p /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin
Then symlink the binary:
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/ruby /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby
6. Hack away!
brew install commands seemed to work fine (
redis, etc...). Along with
You'll probably need to install Bundler with
gem install bundler if you haven't already.
Improve this Gist!
Leave a comment if something didn't work.
