Are you using a Ruby version manager?

As far as I know, I have not because I'm not a Rubyish person, but I can check once I get home. I knew I brew installed it and would have installed it way back when for brew (since I'm pretty sure brew runs on ruby) but otherwise I don't recall ever doing anything with ruby.

What sort of issues are you having right now with it?

Right now, nothing, since I was eventually able to get local up and running to get my screenshots for my PR :) Originally, though, since I was only installing it to use, I didn't:

  1. have it installed (ended up installing it outside of the recommended path since I was trying to solve ruby errors rather than continue reading the readme and find what I skipped over)
  2. have it running (lots of googling eventually found me to where a blog somewhere listed the command to run it)
  3. or how to access it (I loved the seed data scripts but wanted to add a user with specific data to hit my cases... I ended up setting up Github integration to use myself, but eventually figured out how to list known databases and then I could use RubyMine's built-in db handling to modify local data)

Like, reading the section of hey install this stuff didn't really click with me to actually run the database and that it was not a part of the bin scripts.

Ah gotcha, sorry that wasn't clear! We'll definitely update the instructions for the prerequisites.

And yep, let me know if you still have issues with your Ruby, or anything else really. 🙂
