Pre-requisites for installing Jekyll?
In the installation guide for Jekyll, it says "The best way to install Jekyll is via RubyGems". I entered the command "sudo gem install jekyll" in the terminal and it asked for my password after. I don't have Ruby on my computer yet though so I am hesitant to continue. Is Ruby already pre-installed into OSX or do I still have to install it? If so, where can I find a tutorial on this. Thank you!

Yes, by default, Ruby comes pre-installed on OSX computers. So, your command is correct. Try installing without the sudo prefix though. It won't ask you for a password, but also may not allow you to install. If it does... bonus! However, if it doesn't, do it the way you stated (with sudo), and the password is just your admin password you have for your computer.
Good luck. :)
