Installing and using Ruby on mac OS

There are a number of new programs that I’ve been reading up on lately. One of the programming languages I’ve been curious about learning is Ruby. Most OSX should by default already have Ruby installed.

I have found a good installation guide here for OS users. Just download the program with the link on the image below and follow their step by step instructions. Ruby is a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an a clean syntax that is natural to read and easy to write. You will need Ruby running to install SASS which I’m covering in the next post to make your life with CSS easier.
