The best least failure-prone way I’ve found is by using RubyInstaller builds. Go to to get the latest Ruby+Devkit (be careful to choose well your architecture).

gem install jekyll bundler

If you have to create a new Jekyll app:

jekyll new appdir
cd appdir

If you already got one:

Now we will edit the Gemfile to include wdm. Add this:

gem 'wdm', '>= 0.1.0' if Gem.win_platform?


bundle install
bundle exec jekyll serve
