How To Install Pik and Run Commands on Git Bash – Ruby

A few weeks or so ago, I was learning Ruby on Rails and I couldn’t avoid running into the version control issue with Ruby. Consider a situation where you are running Ruby 1.93 but you want to write code that works with a different version of Ruby like Ruby 2.00. The solution is to perhaps install more than one version right? Now after installing more than one version, you might be wondering how to switch from one version to another. That is why I am doing this tutorial.

This tutorial is meant for Windows computers! The idea is to install a ruby version manager for Windows. People using Macs might be familiar with something called rvm for … you guessed it … ruby version manager. People using windows however, have pik and it is totally free to download and use. So, without much ado, here is the video tutorial I created to make things easier. It is complete with examples.

So, there you have it. I hope it helped you and if you run into any problem, do not hesitate to ask because I will be more than happy to help.
