Feedbin Installation on Mac OS X

This will get Feedbin running on a fresh install. If you already have a ruby environment configured you can skip most of these steps.

Command Line Tools

These can be downloaded from the Apple Developer website, or in Xcode preferences.


ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"


brew update
brew install rbenv
brew install ruby-build
echo 'if which rbenv > /dev/null; then eval "$(rbenv init -)"; fi' >> ~/.bash_profile
source ~/.bash_profile

Ruby 2.3.1

rbenv install 2.3.1
rbenv global 2.3.1


gem install bundler

You may need to open a new terminal to make the bundle command available in your PATH.

Postgres 9.2.4

brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask
brew cask install postgres
open ~/Applications/

Redis 2.6.14

brew update
brew install redis

ImageMagick (requirement for rmagick gem)

Make sure to follow post install instructions.

Clone Feedbin

git clone
cd feedbin

Setup the database (Make sure you're running Postgres and Redis)

Start scheduled tasks and background workers

bundle exec foreman start


curl | sh
ln -nfs /path/to/feedbin ~/.pow/feedbin

At this point you should be able to load in your browser.
