I was able to upgrade ruby versions. These are the commands I had to run. I will spare you the error messages and detours.

{% highlight bash %} ~ $ ruby -v ruby 2.3.0p0 (2015-12-25 revision 53290) [x86_64-darwin14]

Commands to install rbenv and latest ruby

brew doctor brew update brew install rbenv echo export PATH=$HOME/.rbenv/shims:$PATH >> $HOME/.bashrc brew upgrade ruby-build rbenv install --list rbenv install 2.5.1 echo 2.5.1 > ~/.rbenv/version rbenv rehash rbenv versions gem env gem install bundler

~ $ ruby -v ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [x86_64-darwin15]

Re-install the gems in the blog installation directory

bundle install bundle show jekyll bundle exec jekyll serve {% endhighlight %}

These are essentially the commands I ran, roughly in that order but it got a bit confusing somewhere in the middle.

I decided not to run rbenv init, the only mandatory thing it does is add the shims folder to the PATH. So I just did that myself.
