Learn how to install Jekyll and the dependencies it needs to run. Nate explains where to find installation instructions and how to test your installation to make sure everything is working.
- [Instructor] The first step…is installing Jekyll on your machine.…Search for install Jekyll,…and follow the official instructions…on the Jekyll website, at jekyllrb.com.…There are detailed instructions here…for Mac, Linux and Windows.…Because Jekyll is built on top of Ruby,…you'll need to make sure that Ruby is installed first.…You can do this by opening your terminal,…or your shell, for example I'm using PowerShell…on Windows, and typing ruby -v.…And also gem -v.…If you get an error message when you run either…of these commands, you'll need to fix your installation…of Ruby first, before continuing with Jekyll.…
If the instructions on the Jekyll website…don't resolve your problem, search for install Ruby,…and your operating system, like install Ruby Windows,…to get some more help.…Once you've installed Jekyll, double-check…that it's working as well, by doing jekyll -v.…If you see a version number here too,…you've installed Jekyll correctly, and you're ready to go.…If you get an error, retrace the steps…in the installation guide to make sure…
