Installing troubled gems in Mac OS X

Sometimes, installing a gem in Mac OS can be a hard work. I fought with dependencies and compilers, and those are the solutions I found:


brew install libxml2 libxslt libiconv
brew link libxml2 libxslt libiconv
xcode-select --install
gem install nokogiri -- --use-system-libraries


gem install libv8 -- --with-system-v8
