I'll tell you that what I would do first would be to make a new file and paste in:

 gem install --user redcarpet pygments.rb

Then run that line from within TextMate using Bundles -> Shell Script -> Execute line.

[You can also find it by pressing ⌘ + T and searching for "Execute line" or by pressing ^ + R.]

That way you can be relatively sure that the gem that TextMate runs commands with will be the one used to install pygments.

After I updated macOS Catalina, Markdown Preview no longer works. I got the following error message:

Please install the Redcarpet and Pygments.rb RubyGems by running the following:
/usr/bin/gem install --user redcarpet pygments.rb

After I ran the above command, I received the following error message from the Terminal:

You might have to install separate package for the ruby development
environment, ruby-dev or ruby-devel for example.

Can someone help me to resolve this issue?
