I recently updated my Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10) to El Capitan (10.11). Everything seems good for couple of days but as soon as I tried to run my Jekyll site, I’d a great surprise waiting for me.


jekyll serve –config=_config.yml,_config_dev.yml

-bash: jekyll: command not found


OOPs, where is my Jekyll? Expecting some of the installed programs are reverted after upgrade, I decided to install Jekyll again and found second surprise was waiting for me, instructions given on jekyllrb.com are not working any more. I followed same instructions on Yosemite in install Jekyll so I knew problem is with El Capitan, not jekyll.


After spending some time on google, visiting few sites, I finally find that Apple is now using System Integrity Protection (SIP) to restrict write access to some of system folders. This contains folder /Library/Ruby which is version of Ruby shipped with Mac. With SIP, ‘sudo gem install jekyll’ is no longer possible.
