How do I know when to close out terminal after installing Ruby on Mac?

These are the last few lines in the terminal. Can I exit out of the window and proceed?

I'm sure someone here has a better answer, but I literally never close terminal. Also, you're using rails, you're going to need it open.

Are you referring to a terminal window that is currently running your Rails application?

If so you'll want to make sure you <CTRL>-c to kill the Rails server before you close the terminal window since closing the window will not necessarily stop the server (in which case you'll need to find the process id of the running server to stop it).
