Jekyll is a static site generator built in Ruby and available to generate and host websites on GitHub Pages. In this course, you'll install the Jekyll gem, use the command line tool to generate a new project, inspect the scaffolded project, and finally, serve the starter website.

Brew is great, I would really recommend a version manager like RVM or ASDF Ruby.
