Installing Sass on Ubuntu 14.04

Like every web developer I wanted to install Sass on my old Ubuntu 14.04.

When trying to install Sass I got errors, first because I didn’t have a ruby-dev version installed, and then because the ruby version was older than 2.0

So with a little help of this StackOverflow post

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:brightbox/ruby-ng
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install ruby2.4
$ sudo apt-get install ruby2.4-dev

$ ruby -v                         
$ ruby 2.4.3p205 (2017-12-14 revision 61247) [x86_64-linux-gnu]

$ sudo gem install sass
$ sass -v
$ Sass 3.5.5 (Bleeding Edge)

My Thoughts about Technology

I know that technology is a part of science and without it there wouldn’t exist any technology nor progress.
The most amazing thing about technology is that I can dream about the future, about the life and the new ways of doing things. Continue reading My Thoughts about Technology

Testing SwiftKey

Now testing SwiftKey keyboard and trying to type really fast.
It is really good, but and the auto correction works fine.
I can really type very fast and error free.
I am probably going through the buy SwiftKey for my Samsung Galaxy S 2.
Writing now can be real fun. :-)

Mmm… The keyboard expands and I can see only a bit of my text.
I wish I could make the keyboard smaller on horizontal mode.
