Installing RVM on Linux


4 of 6

Install RVM

Now that you're all set up, install RVM itself. This is done via a shell script which you can download and run directly with a single command.

$ bash -s stable < <(curl -s https://raw.github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/master/binscripts/rvm-installer)

Append the following line to your ~/.bashrc file.

[[ -s "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"  # This loads RVM

And then reload your bash environment (or close the terminal window and open a new one).

$ source ~/.bashrc
