No matter which version you choose, you’ll need a free ActiveState Platform account in order to fork a copy of ActiveState Ruby into your own account, and then install it using the provided command line snippet.

At ActiveState, we use the Platform to build not only our popular open source language distributions, but also custom runtimes for our enterprise clients (i.e. builds containing just the language and packages their project requires). Try it out yourself or get a personalized demo and understand how it can support your enterprise’s open source needs.
New to the ActiveState Platform? Here’s how to get started, once you’ve created your free account.
Use our Platform to build a custom environment for your next project, including just the language and packages your project needs.
- Choose a language (Python, Per, Ruby or Tcl)
- Select your operating system (Linux, Windows, or Mac if available)
- Add the packages your project requires
ActiveState regularly pulls packages from each language’s standard open source repository (CPAN, PyPI, RubyGems etc) to ensure that your open source language and components are up to date, can be compiled from source, and are then verified to work together in a distribution that is packaged for most major operating systems. Go ahead and try our beta today! We are hanging out at our Community Forum to provide support as you explore.
Individual users can get started with the ActiveState Platform for free. For use by organizations or teams of individuals, explore our paid plans.
