I’ve been trying to get my head around how to be productive on OSX. I often come along script commands to facilitate the development process and take alot of the menial tasks off to a short script in a command line. However I’m often stumbling around in the dark. An example of this is using jekyll to compile my blog.
Every time I come to write a blog post (once every 3 months going by history) I have to re-rememeber how to compile. Inevitably I think “How do I compile the site?” and type “Jeckyll” into google (Yes my spelling is atrocious). Then I realise it’s a simple case of putting the directory into the command window and running the following
Which of course tells me
Sigh - Did I uninstall it? Let’s install again then.
Oh yes - I remeber I have a weird ruby setup - it’s installed using sudo - but I have another one in there…
This then fires off the install again. Phew.
NB - If you don’t have rvm installed than I suggest the RVM site.
The jekyll command is now recognised - great time to build the site.
Oh yes - I forgot. Every time you install software a fresh you run the risk of important pieces being depricated. Let’s try again after renaming the property in the _config.yml file.
Probably best to test it…
And now I can publish my next blog post the post you’ve just read.
