Installing Ruby and Ruby on Rails on OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

I am currently on the developer preview version of OS X 10.9 and am trying to begin learning Ruby on rails. The ruby installer however will not install since my OS version is too new. Does anyone know a alternative method of installing or a workaround?


Is there any update on this now that we have a GM build?

My advice would be to actually downgrade if the Dev version 10.9 was just released (bear in mind that I do not actually know when it was released). If it was, then the Ruby team is also probably still working on their build for the OS, so the best version would be buggy and deficient.

Yes that is an option, but not one that I would like to choose.
