First, I want to stress that Octopress is a blogging framework for hackers. You should be comfortable running shell commands and familiar with the basics of Git. If that sounds daunting, Octopress probably isn't for you.
Before You Begin
- Install Git.
- Install Ruby 1.9.3 or greater using either rbenv or RVM.
ruby --version doesn't say you're using Ruby at least 1.9.3, revisit your rbenv or RVM installation.
Next, install dependencies.
Install the default Octopress theme.
