git clone https://github.com/rbenv/rbenv.git ~/.rbenv echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc
Install ruby-build to provide
git clone https://github.com/rbenv/ruby-build.git ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc
Then install Ruby and check the version
rbenv install 2.6.6 rbenv global 2.6.6 ruby -v > ruby 2.6.6p146 (2020-03-31 revision 67876) [x86_64-linux] gem install bundler -N

Using Fedora Repositories
Fedora typically uses a recent version of Ruby that is maintained by the Fedora Ruby special interest group.
First, update your package list:
sudo dnf update
Then install Ruby as indicated here using
sudo dnf install ruby
Verify that ruby is installed
ruby -v > ruby 2.6.6p146 (2020-03-31 revision 67876) [x86_64-linux]
Then install bundler as indicated here
gem install bundler
And that’s it!
Install Node & Yarn
The easiest way to install Node and Yarn is via the package manager dnf.
sudo dnf update sudo dnf install nodejs nodejs-devel sudo dnf install nodejs-yarn
Then verify your installed versions:
node -v > v12.19.0 yarn -v > 1.21.1
Now all that is left is to install Bridgetown!
gem install bridgetown -N
Create a new Bridgetown site at
./mysite, as well as run
bundle install and
yarn install automatically:
bridgetown new mysite cd mysite
Now you should be able to build the site and run a live-reload server:
$ yarn start
Try opening the site up in http://localhost:4000. See something? Awesome, you’re ready to roll! If not, try revisiting your installation and setup steps, and if all else fails, reach out to the Bridgetown community for support.
