We’ve just released updated Ruby 2.3 and 2.2 packages for Ubuntu.
If you don’t already know, we maintain updated Ruby packages for Ubuntu Precise, Trusty, Xenial and Yakkety. We also provide packages for ancient versions of Ruby (1.8.7 and 1.9.3), in case you’ve got a vintage Ruby app that you’re still maintaining somewhere.
Just add our repository, if you haven’t already:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:brightbox/ruby-ng $ sudo apt-get update
Install the packages you need:
$ sudo apt-get install ruby2.3 ruby2.3-dev ruby2.2 ruby2.2-dev
And you’re up and running:
$ ruby2.3 -v ruby 2.3.3p222 (2016-11-21 revision 56859) [x86_64-linux-gnu]
You can install multiple versions at once and switch the default between them
ruby-switch. More details on what is provided and how to use everything
on the docs page.
We’ll have Ubuntu packages for Ruby 2.4 shortly after its official release, which is usually 25th December.
We’ve been supporting Ruby web applications since way back in 2007 and we know what we’re doing. So if you want help deploying and running a Ruby app drop us a line about our managed services.
