Installing a new Ruby with rbenv on Mac OS

Install a new Ruby with rbenv on Mac OS (and make yourself a superhero)

If you're doing stuff with Ruby on a Mac, e.g. installling Jekyll or something, by default you'll end up having to use the sudo command to do stuff, since the permission to modify the default config is not available to your user account.

This sucks and should be avoided. Here's how to fix that.

Installing a new Ruby

To make this better, we are going install a new, custom Ruby. This used to be a big, scary thing, but thanks to the awesome tools Homebrew and rbenv, it's a snap.*

A word of warning: you will have to use Terminal to install this stuff. If you are uncomfortable with text, words, and doing stuff with your computer beyond pointing and hoping, this may not work well for you. But if that's the case, I'm not sure why you were trying to use Ruby in the first place.

Japanese default css font family

Most Japanese websites use default font sets provided on Windows, Mac or Ubuntu. The latest ones are Meiryo, Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro and Noto. For older versions such like Windows XP, it is good to add former default fonts MS Gothic(or MS Mincho)/Osaka. Older Linux versions may include Takao fonts.

Some old browsers could not understand those font names in English, some others do not recognize the names in Japanese, so it is safe to write both in Japanese and English.

Meiryo and Hiragino's order is, because Mac users may have Meiryo from MS-Office, and Hiragino is more familiar and matching well on Mac, better by starting Hiragino series.

So the current recommended practice is like this:

font-family: "ヒラギノ角ゴ Pro W3", "Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro", Osaka, メイリオ, Meiryo, "MS Pゴシック", "MS PGothic", "MS ゴシック" , "MS Gothic", "Noto Sans CJK JP", TakaoPGothic, sans-serif;
