Rails ActionText on a Mac M1 Pro

I was trying to use ActionText but Rails was giving me an issue about missing vips command in my Mac.

After a bit of digging, I realized that I have to install libvips. It's a competitor of Imagemagick.

It's easy to do it on a Mac but it will take sometime to load everything.

You just run in your terminal:

brew install vips

Then you go back to your Rails app and run:

bundle install

That will make sure you have everything you need.
