-CocoaPods runs on [MacRuby](http://macruby.org). If you don't have a recent version of MacRuby installed you will need to download it. CocoaPods works best on version 0.10.
+CocoaPods runs on [Ruby](http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/). To install it run the following commands:
- $ curl -O http://www.macruby.org/files/MacRuby%200.10.zip
- $ open MacRuby%200.10.zip
- # open MacRuby\ 0.10/MacRuby\ 0.10.pkg

-
- $ sudo macgem install cocoapods
+ $ sudo gem install cocoapods
$ pod setup
Now that you've got CocoaPods installed you can easily add it to your project.
