nostatus is an experimental WordPress site

I use this to experiment, code and optimize my server and platform. Here are some of the things I do:

  • experiment with:
    • traffic to this site (purchased or organic)
  • test the user experience (a/b, mvt, and personalization)
  • enhance various site attributes
    • speed
    • security
    • readability

You may be lucky to find something interesting here, but probably not. This is a totally selfish and self-serving site.

Nokogiri install error

An error occurred while installing nokogiri (, and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install nokogiri -v ‘’` succeeds before bundling.

Well, this was a pain. I tried a lot of solutions such as;

rvm use system

rvm use 2.2.3 –default

Then a bunch of stack exchange solutions. But none of the solutions worked.

What did work

Simple… I got the idea from using the system’s installed version of ruby, but anyhow, since I wasn’t getting other weird El Capitan related errors, I did this, voila:

bundle config build.nokogiri –use-system-libraries
