Get Ruby stuff to compile on Apple Silicon M1
View Ruby Apple Silicon M1
Here are my notes on getting the codebase to work on the new M1 processors:
Upgrade the Ruby version to 2.7.2. You may need to set some compiler flags such as:
Update all gems with 'bundle update'
Modify the Gemfile to detect the new hardware:
if RUBY_PLATFORM =~ /arm64.*darwin/ && `sysctl -n machdep.cpu.brand_string` =~ /M1/
# Get things to compile for Apple Silicon - minimum Ruby version of 2.7.2

AOL and Yahoo! now use DMARC to force email services like SendGrid and MailChimp to reject emails if the FROM field gets 'spoofed' for their domain.
