Instructions on how to use MAMP with the mysql2 gem and Ruby 1.9.3-p194 via rbenv

How to use MAMP with the mysql2 gem and Ruby 1.9.3-p194 via rbenv

Let's say you're a web developer who happens to work with both MAMP and Ruby when building different types of websites. Let's say you also like to keep your MySQL stuff in one place and don't like having to juggle both a local MySQL install as well as a MAMP MySQL install. Well, you can indeed connect your ruby apps to MAMP's MySQL. Here's a tutorial on how to do it.

Important! Before you do anything, download and install MAMP. MAMP Pro will work as well. At the time of this writing, MAMP 2.1.1 is the latest.

First, install Ruby via rbenv

  1. Install homebrew
  2. Install rbenv: brew install rbenv, follow any instructions homebrew gives you after the installation is complete.

Bootstrap 4 menus in WordPress with filters

No walker needed!

This snippet allows you to create Bootstrap 4 menus without the use of a Walker. Instead, we're using filters to leverage WordPress core functionality as much as possible. Basically, all you need to do is this and you're done:

<nav class="navbar navbar-expand-lg fixed-top">
  <div class="container">
    <a class="navbar-brand" href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>">

How To Install Memcache on MAMP 2

  1. Install memcached. I'd suggest using homebrew. brew install memcached
  2. Select your desired version of PHP that you'd like to use in MAMP. This dropdown is located in the PHP tab in MAMP PRO.
  3. Visit the Downloads Page on and download the source code. If your release isn't listed, visit the Releases page.
  4. Extract the source into /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/[php version folder]/include/php.
  5. /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/[php version folder]/include/php/configure
  6. /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/[php version folder]/bin/pecl i memcache.
  7. Add to your php.ini
    • MAMP Pro: /Applications/MAMP\ Pro/MAMP\[your php version].ini
You can’t perform that action at this time.
