Hi! Steph here, former long-time End Point employee now blogging from afar as a software developer for Pinhole Press. While I’m no longer an employee of End Point, I’m happy to blog and share here.
A while back, I was in the middle of upgrading Piggybak, an open source Ruby on Rails platform developed and supported by End Point, and I came across a quick error that I thought I'd share.
I develop locally and I use rbenv on Ubuntu. I need to jump from Ruby 1.9.3 to Ruby 2.1.1 in this upgrade. When I attempt to run
I found many directions for updating rbenv and ruby-build with Homebrew via Google, but that doesn't apply here. Most of the instructions point to running a git pull on rbenv (probably located in ~/.rbenv), but give no references to upgrading ruby-build.
cd ~/.rbenv git pull
I did a bit of experimenting and simply tried pulling to update the ruby-build plugin (also a git repo):
cd ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build/ git pull
And tada - that was all that was needed.
