How to install Ruby in your AWS Machine?

Ruby is a dynamic, interpreted, reflective, object-oriented, general-purpose programming language. Ruby is most used for building web applications. However, it is a general-purpose language similar to Python, so it has many other applications like data analysis, prototyping, and making proof of concept.

Step 1: Updating System Packages

sudo yum update -y

Step 2: Installing Ruby from the YUM package manager

sudo yum install ruby


Step 3: Check the version

ruby --version

Installing Ruby using Rbenv

It is a lightweight Ruby version management utility which allows you to switch Ruby versions easily.

sudo yum install git wget gcc bzip2 openssl-devel libffi-devel readline-devel zlib-devel gdbm-devel ncurses-devel

install rbenv and ruby-build

wget -q -O- | bash

add $HOME/.rbenv/bin to our PATH by below command

echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
rbenv -v

To see Ruby versions,

rbenv install -l

And for verification of ruby version follow below commands

ruby --version

Now you should have a fairly good idea of installing Ruby on your AWS machine. With just a few generic tweaks, you can install Ruby on any Linux distribution.
